Idi Amin was good enough to play for the Ugandan Test Team and on his progress report at Sandhurst , he was described as " A splendid type and a good player but virtually bone from the neck up".
Bill Clinton was a keen scrummer as a Rhodes scholar.
"I didn't know any of the rules. But being the biggest guy on the team, the coach just said to me,'Clinton, go out there and get in someone's way.'So that's what I did. I just got in people's way."
Prince William played fly-half at Eton. An opposing coach told his team that they could tell their grandchildren that they had tackled the King of England. The whole team piled into him all day long.
Richard Harris, star of This Sporting Life once said he'd give up all his 2 Golden Globes, 2 Oscar nominations, 2 BAFTA nominations, the actor's prize at Cannes, a Grammy and his multi-millions for one Irish rugby cap. Just one. He used to play for Munster but had to retire from the game after contracting tuberculosis.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
