SPORTS BRIEFING

In case you missed Bentos' comment on my blog about those naked rugby players, check out the Italian rugger stars who're currently doing their bit for Dolce & Gabbana...


Here's what the Press Release said...

Paris, Jean Bouin Arena, a symbolic place for Rugby.

It's in this "temple of Sport" that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana created the new D&G Underwear Advertising Campaign, with five Italian champions and photographer Randall Mesdon.

Sergio Parisse, Denis Dallan, Ezio Galon, Andrea Masi e Gonzalo Canale are the athletes D&G chose to represent the contemporary man, and his lifestyle.

The impressive bodies sculpted through dedication, discipline and physically strenuous trainings, make them the perfect models for a new ideal of beauty that is healthy, clean and masculine.

Randall Mesdon enhanced the statuesque lines of their body, the very same body which is that of real-life gladiators, scarred by strong encounters with worthy opponents. Because it's the fight, but also the utter sportsmanship with which it is carried on, that makes Rugby one of the most fascinating and captivating disciplines out there.

Yeah, right! If I were you, I'd just watch the film! Follow this link and click on video.

Good Morning!!

So now you're a rugby fan!

I'm not sure whether or not I like these blogs with hunky semi-naked men in them. Perhaps you'd better keep them coming so that I can make up my mind. Oops - no double-entendre intended there.

Couldn't find the video button in the link.

LISAH - Under the words ITALIAN RUGBY PLAYERS are three options: 'Gallery', 'Video' and 'Press Release'. Click on VIDEO and it should take you to the right place -- should you wish to go there, of course...

Phwoar!!

Many thanks for that - the links were almost completely hidden at the bottom of my screen.

I think I'll be coming out in hot flushes all day - which is a bit unfortunate since I'm giving a talk in a couple of hours to a senior citizens' club.

Maybe you could screen it for the old folks - of course, a few may have heart seizures, but it's not a bad way to go...
