Rugby Bits & Bites … First Day of the Fall Season!

First team practice tonight! But first some rugby goodness …

• Harry Potter’s friend Hermione and I have something in common … we both are dating rugby hunks.

• Oh to live in a country where a women’s rugby player is a “sexy” celebrity who’s recent breakup is tabloid fodder, instead of Mrs. Federline.

Are you excited for the World Cup? It’s coming up quick! Here’s a few Rugby World Cup bits and bites, with some features on our own USA Eagles …

• And in something I can’t link to … I saw a photo of a very good looking Eagle Flanker in his underwear today. I am now looking more forward to the upcoming international match in Chicago, Aug. 26. 🙂

And in case you’re not thinking this far ahead, don’t forget the IRB 7s season is also only a few months away …

Sevens Rugby More Popular Than Ever

• And the IRB 7s Schedule was announced earlier this month:

Nov. 30-Dec. 1 — Dubai
Dec. 7-8 — South Africa

Feb. 1-2 — New Zealand
Feb. 9-10 — United States
March 28-30 — Hong Kong
April 5-6 — Australia
May 24-25 — England
May 31-June 1 — Scotland

And lest you think I’ve gone way too international today, all across the world rugby seasons are starting up.

• The UK’s Times Online provides us with some helpful info on getting in shape for rugby

• And should your club ever need to perform the Haka (or you’re just curious what it actually means), one blogger breaks the ancient war dance down for us.

    Blondie, since you appreciate the male form, I read somewhere that a French photographer came up with a BOOK with naked/semi naked French ruggers showing off their aesthetic, buff physics.
