The French have been fantasizing about Judo legend Teddy Riner playing rugby again

If you could type into a computer 'ultimate rugby player physique' something like Teddy Riner would be its response. 

French Lucozade people have been fantasizing about super-heavyweight Judo legend Teddy Riner turning his hand to rugby again. 

The 6'8, 130kg monster has been linked to a move to Toulon in the past, and there's no doubting his has the physical tools - setting aside anything else - to be a worldclass player. 

With this the mind an ad campaign has been launched ahead of the RWC asking is the public would the Olympian be ready to play in the tournament. The guy is only 26 so there's still time. We can all hope.
