Naked Rugger Buggers Buggering About

The New Zeeland and South African Rugby teams made the news this week with their nude rugby match on St Kilda beach.

(UPDATE: In fact, the NY Daily News story cited here appears to have got a little over­ex­cited: the play­ers were NOT from the All Blacks and the Boks but local ama­teur play­ers tak­ing part in a mid-winter naked rugby tra­di­tion that has gone on for years — see Uroskin’s com­ment below and on his blog.)

Held before their offi­cial match, and sponsored by ‘Bottom Bus’ (a local tour agency, allegedly), it looks at first glance like a real­isa­tion of the spor­no­graphic fantasy of those Dieux Du Stade cal­en­dars and those ‘Paris: City of Love posters’ with snog­ging rugby play­ers advert­ising the Rugby World Cup last year. And per­haps in a way it is.

But the naughty slo­gans scrawled on their bod­ies and the gen­eral may­hem seems to have more of the trade­mark, old-style rug­ger bug­ger haz­ing humour. Porn and DDS (and UFC) by con­trast, are a very ser­i­ous business.

This seems more like a genu­ine, beery, blokey laugh.

Nice arses, though.
