A loose translation, Foot injuries in rugby players.
Just as there is a call to return to the old rugby boot style from some sectors of the soccer fraternity, time to consider the number of foot injuries recorded in premier rugby players in preparation for the Rugby World Cup 2007.Scotland’s prop Euan Murray (Northern Saints) injured his right foot recently and has been wearing a protective boot in the hope he will be ready for the first game against Portugal. Another foot injury was sustained by Scotland substitute scrum half, Chris Cusiter(USA Perpignan. To complete the hat trick for Ecosse, Scott Murray (US Montauban) has also been nursing a sore foot and ankle. South African prop , Jannie du Plessis (The Cheetahs) had a foot injury which prevented him from joining the squad. Another to miss action due to a fractured 5th metatarsal of his left foot is England’s winner, David Strettle (The Harlequins).
Through out the Rugby World Cup 2007, the Quai Branly museum is hosting rugby-related exhibits, visits and roundtables with archeologists, historians, sociologists and former players. One workshop will teach the haka, the traditional Maori war dance that New Zealand's All Blacks perform before the kickoff. The roof of the museum is covered with green turf to look like a playing field.
There is also another exhibition at the Paris City Hall, called "Rugby, a World of Emotions," which explores a day in the life of a rugby team. In the north of Paris at Saint Denis there is the Festival Ovale where artists from 12 countries will perform in 30 free concerts.
