From Israel DEgg to Geoff Stations of the Cross - The42's Easter-egg chasing XV

It’s almost Easter FUNDAY… geddit?

AFTER SUCH JOURNALISTIC masterpieces as The42′s festive hurlers and last year’s Easter footballers, we thought we’d tackle (!) a different sport this weekend and what better endeavour than Easter-egg chasing.

This is far from a definitive list — Pat Lam(b) didn’t make the cut, for example — so we’d love to hear your suggestions in the comment section below.
