This sculpture is the second to feature rugby players. (The first can be seen outside the Rugby Moto service station on the M1) The power of these forms is inherent. The machine-like quality of Chandler’s work is well suited to portraying these athletes, who exhibit formidable strength and courage. His style can, in this context, be seen to hint at the fact that these honed individuals, like the Spartans, go into the fray, putting their bodies on the line for a cause.
