French rugby ...

More gratuitous almost-nudity? Good to see French rugby player Frederic Michalak still playing for the French team in the recent Rugby World Cup. He is still fit but is only in his early 30s. It is several years though since those "Diex De Stade" calendars and videos when the French team stripped off, tastefully .... here Frederic wears that striking tattoo ... he has since got married and has two children.  He plays for RC Toulon and previously for Toulouse - and still has the tattoo.
Of course the Irish and Italian teams are pretty nifty and fit too ... though its New Zealand v Australia in the Final on Saturday 31.
These poses somehow remind me of Nijinksy and that "L'Apres-Midi D'un Faune" ballet from the Ballet Russes in 1912 ...
