PHOTOS: Rugby Gods Strip Down Once Again For “Les Dieux Du Stade” 2014 Calendar

Rugby fans, and particularly fans of naked rugby players, rejoice! — today is the official release date of the 2014 Les Dieux du Stade calendar. Photographer Fred Goudon was kind enough to share a few exclusive photos with us from this year’s hunkfest, featuring Jules Plisson, Clement Daguin, Hugo Bonneval, Alexandre Flanquart, Djibril Camara, Nikola Karabatic and Olivier Giroud. This is the fourteenth edition of the calendar and may we say some things just get better with age.

      Wow! The last pic. While he may not have much bicep/arm development, that beautiful face and ass more than makes up for it.

      the 1st pic is badly done, as handsome as the men are, it’s bad photography. three guys, one looks right at the camera, the other two looking in slightly different directions?

      anyway, I’ve never been particularly impressed with these calenders. A few of the guys have really REALLY nice smiles (in the videos), but they don’t smile in the pics. There are already tons of other calenders and books and whatnot with better-looking guys, who don’t seem quite as “hung up” on the fact that they’re naked. I don’t see the point of these calenders. But then, I’m not a rugby fan, so I’m not particularly interested in a bunch of French rugby players.

      The above comments, obviously, relate to the fact that this is a commercial project meant to showcase “gods” of the stadium. now, if I were to meet ANY of these guys (except one who’s not really my type) in a bar or something, it would be a completely different dynamic. I think, as a regular guys, they are more than handsome.

      My only issue is with them as “gods” of the stadium. There are already thousands of better looking (untouchable) guys in pics out there.

      @MikeE: Those guys in the calender look amazing even without retouching.
      Unlike fashion magazines they don’t go to such extremes to perfect and individual- they just slightly smooth out the edges.

      These Frenchies are okay but too primped, shaved, and prettified. Now give us the South African and Australian rugby players and then we’ll talk.

      okay… i’m actually gonna be that guy this time… and i’m a little bitter with the powers that be for turning me into that guy… where the hell is the hair? i mean, i expect some manscaping to be going on with any photo shoot… but these are a bunch of ruggers for chris’sake. half the reason we love them as much as we do is because they are rough and fuzzy and natural… :::sigh::: all that waxing…

      Couldn’t they find at least one rugby player with some hair on his chest? I find this very disappointing.

      @WhyteRabbit: Because it’s hot. And it’s about the muscles and the look. And if you don’t like it, buy another calender… problem solved.

      Any questions?

      Very weak calendar this year! Very disappointing. Same for their promo video. At the opposite the Gay Orthodox Priest launched their second edition this year. It is fresh and of actuality. This year edition is “LOVE IS LOVE: ORTHODOX OR NOT! (so cleaver, I love it). Got to see their “orthodox calendar” as they name it :) Plus their is a story behind it witch makes it funny and distractive.

      @mrzodiac2003: Well, unless it prevents a unibrow LOL. Honestly (as opposed to my previous comment which is how these calenders every year are presented) it really depends on the guy himself and what works for him and his aesthetic.

      But generally speaking, yeah, you’re absolutely correct.
