General Election 2019: Politicians that played rugby

With the 2019 general election fast approaching we decided to put together a list of politicians you mightn’t have known played…

Andrew R T Davies: The Conservative leader in Wales is the National Assembly Rugby team’s chairman and was part of the side who have taken on the House of Commons at Cardiff Arms Park in what has been dubbed the ‘real’ England-Wales showdown.

Jacques Chirac: The former French President played second row and number 8 for Brive’s youth team and the Paris Institute for Political Studies. Shouldn’t be a surprise that a man nicknamed “le bulldozer” played in the pack.

US President Bill Clinton: Developed an interest in rugby in England, playing prop at Oxford. It has been claimed that he played at Little Rock RFC in Arkansas, but they deny this.
