The Two Sides of Sport

Rugby World Cup 2019

Sport has massive ups and downs, as does life.

Explore the world of rugby union and what it looks like to be a Christian in it. Featuring interviews from Welsh hooker Garin Jenkins, England full-back Jonathan Webb, former England Womens international Ann O’Flynn and a talk from evangelist Rico Tice.

In the video, Rico explores the deeper questions that life and sport can provoke in us – but can’t answer. He shares how the Bible answers these questions and explains why Jesus came.

“Thanks to Alpha International for allowing us to use footage of Debbie Flood and to Fratton Park and Leander Rowing Club for locations.”
