THE ROCK HAS FAITH IN THE MANU … NO TOUGHER SPORT THAN RUGBY
He is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time and but mention rugby to Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock and his legs go to jelly.
The sportsman-turned-Hollywood hardman currently in London putting the finishing touches to a new movie has been enjoying the rugby on television, but when asked by News Ltd if he wished he could play for his ancestral Samoa or even the Wallabies the big man was adamant.
"No and I will tell you why," he said.
"I use to live in New Zealand for sometime and I went to school in New Zealand and I played rugby. I have been very lucky, I played American football for a very long time, American professional wrestling for a very long time and had my fair share of action in Hollywood … there is no tougher sport than rugby.
"And for those who have played it and understand the game know what I am talking about and those who don’t and I have this argument with my American buddies all the time who are great football players and I tell them 'so as amazing as you are in football I want you to take all your pads off including your helmet and go play the game and see how long you last'. So no I don’t wish I was playing.”
