#ManCrushMonday: Frédéric Michalak
The 33-year-old is in majestic form for the 2015 Rugby World Cup

The Rugby World Cup is upon us, and it can only mean one thing — men built like Hodor wear micro shorts while charging towards the try zone like bargain hunters at a Prada sample sale. It's a hard game to watch if your son is getting tackled left, right and centre on the field, but for the rest of us, rugby reigns as the Bear Grylls of manly sports. It's pretty much the only game filled with more testosterone than mating season in the Savannah.

Paris Fashion Week might be underway, but another worthy Gallic export that has caught our eye is Frédéric Michalak. Thanks to his impressive footwork (perhaps he slathered Echiré butter on his thighs?), the artful dodger has slipped past porous defence lines, making him France's all-time leading scorer to date in the World Cup.

Following Les Bleus' 41-18 victory over Canada, France has earned their place in the World Cup quarter-finals. With Michalak in top form, France looks set to take on the big boys in the coming weeks. We have no doubt he'll continue to fly the flag high.
