Video: Arsenal stars try their hand at rugby, Calum Chambers takes a fall

Rugby Action

The Gunners might want to stick to football.

Tonight sees the Rugby World Cup get underway with England facing Fiji at Twickenham to begin their home campaign. However, it is not just fans of the oval ball that are getting excited, those that kick a round one around are buzzing as well.

That includes three players at Arsenal whose nations all have a shot of winning the trophy this summer.

Aaron Ramsey of Wales, Francis Coquelin of France and Calum Chambers of England took part in a rugby challenge for Arsenal TV this week – which certainly had one entertaining moment.

Chambers’ defending has been called into question since his arrival at The Emirates, but it was his balance that was off during the mess around.

He chased a kicked pass from Ramsey in hope of scoring a try for the cameras, when he inexplicably stacked it in his astros, Steven Gerrard style.

Arsenal fans will certainly be hoping that he does not have any similar mishaps in future games for the club, as slipping like that in front of your own goal could certainly prove catastrophic.
