With the rainy weather I’ve been experiencing the last several days, I decided to take a virtual trip to Australia for this week’s Sports Stud and highlight one of their fine athletic specimens: Lance “Buddy” Franklin (I’ll call him “Buddy” in this post). he’s 25 years old (almost 26) and plays for the Hawthorn Football Club in the Australian Football League. Even though he’s super tall (6’5″), he’s known for his speed and agility on the field, mainly playing centre half-forward, and sometimes midfield.

With him becoming a free agent when his contract ends at the end of the season, there was some concern that he might accept an offer from a rival AFL team, but his manager recently confirmed that he’ll be staying with the Hawthorn. Buddy’s performance on the field over the past several years has definitely made him an attractive consideration for rival teams.

As you look through the photos below, you’ll notice that Buddy has lots of tattoos and those are dedicated to his Indigenous heritage. Personally, I love his sleeve tattoo as I have been thinking about getting a half sleeve tattoo extending onto one side of my chest myself. There are also a few sexy pictures he posted onto Instagram that I’m sure you’ll appreciate.

Love those tattoos!

My, what long legs you have…

Franklin posted this photo on Instagram/Twitter with the caption reading, “Busted in my budgies.”

Another photo posted on Instagram/Twitter. I wonder what sort of shenanigans were going on in that bed ;)

Woof! Such a stud :)

…And one last sexy photo to leave you with. ;)
