Celebrities Who Played Rugby XV: James Bond, Presidents and WWE Superstars

Scrum-half: Ryan Giggs

The Manchester United legend grew up watching his father, Danny Wilson, play rugby union and in the Wales international rugby league. Although a big fan of playing and supporting the game in his younger days, Ryan Giggs had to stop playing rugby at the age of 14 to concentrate on football.


Prop: Bill Clinton

Developing an interest in the sport during his time at Oxford University, the former President of The United States had no knowledge on how to play the game when he was thrown on the pitch. He eventually got the hang of it and played prop for the university side.


Hooker: Gordon Brown

Was playing for Kirkcaldy High School in Fife at age 16 when he received a boot to the head that tore and detached his retina in his left eye.
