Love Lego? Love Rugby?

Ever wanted to see rugby highlights animated in lego? Of course you have!

The Autumn Rugby Internationals finished a few weeks ago, with England famously upsetting the odds in their win over New Zealand, adding to their total of only seven wins in 35 occasions, while both Wales and Scotland slumped home with zero wins over Southern Hemisphere opposition.

If you want to watch the highlights, there are plenty online. But perhaps the best of the bunch is this one here.

Animated by Graham Love, he's done a bunch of stuff with lego and famous sporting events.

I have never before wanted to see this and now I don't ever want to see anything else BUT this.

I'm working on a synthetic cannabinoid compound that fools the visual cortex into seeing everything rendered as Lego.

Who's the Judge Graham's talking about here? Paul Rendall?

Ah, I forgot about the 'lego' vs. 'legos' debate in here! I should have said something like "ever wanted to see rugby highlights animated in lego(s)?".

Incidentally, the animator has now been picked up by rugby sponsor Canterbury.
