Jesus has returned
And he plays for the French rugby team.
As France progresses (with some difficulties) through the world cup, the media have launched a new darling, a new hero for us. He is Sebastien Chabal, a towering monster whose beard and flowing hair have earned him the nickname (among others) of Jesus.
Here you can see how he has changed over the years. I hope there's no steroid abuse going on here . . .
And finally, one of many, many versions of clips of Chabal's tackles on France's New Zealand tour. We'll ignore the fact that we lost all the matches . . .
I am very pleased to be able to make a blog ontry on christianity, France and rugby all in one go.
