LIST: 5 celebrities you didn’t know played rugby

It takes grit, tenacity, and strength to hold on to that odd-shaped rugby ball and drive past several tough opponents to get that try.

As it turns out, some very famous and polished men have actually taken to the rugby pitch in their lifetime to do just that.

#1. Benedict Cumberbatch

In addition to acting, Cumberbatch was passionate about playing rugby while at school.

"Everyone was confused," admitted Cumberbatch on his recreational habits during his school days. There's that chap from the rugby pitch; takes his tackle low and doesn't complain when he comes out of it badly. And oh, look, there he is wearing a wig and prancing around being Titania, queen of the fairies.' I covered all bases."
