DOWN AND DIRTY

I've never been even remotely interested in rugby --- until now...




You can see more about the making of these posters here - although, curiously, nobody felt the need to tell us why rugby players are getting their kit off to sell an upmarket version of Lucozade.

Obviously, however, they are all jolly good sports...

Well, that certainly made for a bright start to the weekend!

You see, Brian, rugby players don't all have cauliflower ears and broken noses.

They only managed to find three though, didn't they?!

And that's why not all women stay single!

I think, SUZANNE, that you (and probably LISAH) had better go and watch the little video about how they shot the photos... But brace yourselves, girls!

Suzanne said...

I always did prefer rugby to football - now I know why!

Slipping more bottoms onto your blog?
Good try Brian!

'vingoess' Whoops, nearly missed it as it flashed past.

Brian Sibley said...

SUZANNE - On account of the odd-shaped balls, you mean?

DAVID - Try? Very good! Of course, in American football they have something called a touchdown...

LisaH said...

But I think you'd find a scrum more enjoyable.

Sports??? Can I include Backgammon?, yes, I know, is not very sexy, but is the only sport with risks that I know how to play, excepting checkers and parcheesi...:/

Brian Sibley said...

LISAH - A scrum? at my advanced age? I don't think you can take part in a scrum on a zimmer frame!

EUDORA - I suppose you could play parcheesi in the buff, but would you necessarily have communal baths afterwards?

Gloria said...

If I had seen these pictures before February 16th, theu would have been on my "Big Culo Day" post...well maybe next year, heh

GLORIA - Feel free to make off with my men (but not my man!) any time...

Fascinated by your blogs - I'll be back to explore the archive of your blog devoted to the great Charles Laughton. Intriguing...

Boll Weavil said...

What a let down ! There's more on show on the average Sibley blog !
I can't believe you are so easily won over...

Thanks, BENTOS, the girls (and, indeed, some of the guys) will be most appreciative...
