They’re bringing dirty back. Nope, not that Christina Aguilera type of dirty. That has about three extra “r’s”. Rather, good old fashioned mud on bare chest type of dirty. My favorite type.

Dieux Du Stade returns for a fourteenth year to feature professional rugby players in their naked glory. Once again, photographer Fred Goudon was chosen for this, arguably the best gig in the entire world. How does one apply to be an assistant for Mr. Goudon? Sign me up.

Some of the studs featured in this year’s calendar include Oliver Giroud, Jules Plisson, Djibril Camara, Nikola Karabatic, Clement Daguin, Hugo Bonneval and Alexandre Flanquart. Check out a slightly NSFW video preview below, along with some pics. I can’t wait for the outtakes and for all the money shots and by that, I mean peen ones 😉
