Murray sits out Sunday for Scots…

This headline grabbed my attention on the BBC Sport web page. It’s about the Scottish rugby player, Euan Murray who is a born again Christian. I read some articles about Murray during the British and Irish lions tour, about his faith, and even wrote a blog on the guy. I was encouraged by his openness about what it meant to be a Christian. I found this article interesting as Murray has decided that from now on he wont be playing any rugby on a Sunday, either for club or country.

There must be a massive temptation, especially in pro rugby, to play on a Sunday as there is a risk of him being dropped for players who will play all the time. But he has openly but God before the game, which is something we don’t see much of today. Good on ya Euan.

You can read the article here


am Jamie, and I am a Christ follower. I love Jesus but more importantly he loves me and made the ultimate sacrifice of his son so that all the things I have done, and will do, have been forgiven. And now I know God, and I pursue to know him more. Motivated and transformed by his grace I live for God, to glorify him by enjoying him.

    On Facebook the Canterbury of New Zealand fan page have been discussing Murray and his choice to sit out. It’s funny because it’s causing people to question why such a quality player would decide not to play, it seems crazy to them. Rugby is their world, their god…but Murray is braking the trend.
