Five Rugby World Cup stars who could be the next Bond villain…
To celebrate the release of Spectre, RUCK ponders which Rugby stars past and present could be 007’s next nemesis…
Foley is a man with plenty of ‘villain’ experience. While perhaps not the typical James Bond adversary, it was the Aussie fly-half whose studious kicking broke the hearts of millions across the world last month. The 26-year-old was the one who ruthlessly kicked the winning penalty late on to make it 35-34 to his side against Scotland, after a controversial refereeing decision, to knock the plucky Scots out of the World Cup at the quarter-final stage.
In 1991, Dubroca steered France to the quarter-finals of the World Cup with ease, but they fell short at that stage, losing 19-10 to England, and he was incandescent with rage, so much so that he grabbed referee David Bishop around the throat in the tunnels afterwards. He subsequently attempted to claim that he was congratulating the official on his performance, but he was forced to resign from his job the next day.
We’d love to see him take on Bond.
