CurrencyFairy (Sébastien Chabal) Announces Retirement From Rugby

May 7, 2014

The famous CurrencyFairy, Sébastien Chabal, has announced his retirement from his other role as an international rugby superstar.

Here’s what the out-of-uniform CurrencyFairy said at a press conference on Monday:

At the end of the season, on Sunday, I will end my professional rugby career with pleasure having helped the club [Lyon] being promoted to the top flight.

CurrencyFairy (Sébastien Chabal) In His Finest Role

Here’s how the ESPN website described Chabal:

When Chabal, who has played throughout the back five of the pack for France though his preference is No.8, arrived at English club Sale Sharks from Bourgoin in 2004 he was known as a hard-running but fringe member of Les Bleus’ 2003 Rugby World Cup squad. During that competition in Australia he had a military-style haircut – short back and sides.

Not long after relocating to Manchester, the look changed to a bushy beard and, over time, the flowing long hair followed, and at the 2007 Rugby World Cup in his home country, Chabal was greeted as L’Homme des cavernes – the Caveman – everywhere he went. He was a rare example of a rugby icon, with crowds chanting a Neanderthal “ummm” whenever he had the ball.

Bonne Retraite Monsieur Le CurrencyFairy!

We’re delighted for the CurrencyFairy and wish him well for the next stage of his life.

And while we’re here, let’s take a quick look out the outtakes from the CurrencyFairy TV campaign . . .
