Bit bored and thought with the changing of the guard player wise post a RWC will any country be closer to fielding a 1 ton pack. We've been getting closer and closer. I'm sure we can get a combined team or club team there but realistically, how close are we? Looking at SA (and I know I should not be using Wikipedia but where else).. Probable player / heavier possible alternative (though not absurd IE at least somewhat likely) 1 S Kitshoff 120kg / T du Toit 136kg 2 M Marx 114kg 3 F Malherbe 125kg / C Oosthuizen 127kg 4 E Etzebeth 123kg / P Willemse 135kg 5 L De Jager 125kg 6 S Kolisi 105kg / M Coetzee 114kg 7 PS Du Toit 120kg 8 D Vermeulen 117kg / JJ van der Mescht 120 844kg / 891kg (could have Vermeulen in ahead of Louw to boost to 994kg but still short of 1000kg) So I expect SA has to wait another generation unless we get that one 140kg+ dude. A quick look at heavy men in rugby shows me France could probably do it. Who else?
