Presidential Rugby

I was doing a little research on George W. Bush this morning, and was astonished to find that he played Rugby Union as well as baseball when he was at Yale. I thought only the Welsh played baseball and rugby. I seem to remember, for example, that David Bishop - among others - is a double international having been capped for Wales at both sports.

The photo above is apparently from a 1960's Yale handbook, and I would also note that as well as appearing to throw a "gratifying right hook", the future President is also performing an illegal but gratifying high tackle.
