    By heaviest i dont mean just the fattest but who weighs the most?



    i was watching the Sale game today and i cant remember who it was but one of their reserve forwards came on and he weighed 21st, is there anyone who weighs more in the pro game?

    I'm sure Adam Jones used to be 22st. The stats on the O's website is 20st now though. How heavy was Martyn Madden when he used to play? Sure I remember the 23st mark!

    I know Os du Randt still holds the record for the heaviest ever Bok at 134kg or 136kg, can't remember, but it's around there.

    Well he is certainly the heaviest forward to earn a cap according to this http://www.planetrugby.com/Story/0,18259,9...1852229,00.html

    for those who can't be arsed to read the article:

    1. Bill Cavubati (Fiji)
    Big Bill has a claim to fame when it comes to international rugby - he is the heaviest player to have ever won a cap. But all that fat does little for his boyish looks - he gets the nod on the loosehead side.

    Gavin Quinnell was the heaviest premiership player at 21 stone something until he lost weight and Leeds got their new prop?

    According to Leinster's site he's 130 kgs. Still massive though.
    The write up about him is quite good, Ollie's a straight talker and you get that in it.

    Rodzilla (Rodney Blake), he weighs 130kg now, but when he first started he was up around 136 or so

    Sweet...I've fluxuated between 21 and 22 stone over the last multiple seasons...maybe that's why I'm such an awesome prop? Or maybe it's just because I'm an awesome prop...maybe we'll never know.

    Here in Brazil i have a friend who have 140kg, he is a massive man!(tackle him is a little beat hard)
     
  17. is he... you know, a fattie ;)? or does he have lots of muscles?
     
  18. damn, all this talk about heavy front rows make me think that I'm way too light to be a hooker at 105kg...

    Yeah Big Bill from Fiji is the biggest of all time..165kgs is about right. Big Joe Vetyaki from the 2003 RWC in the Fijian squad was 136.

    Gotta love ya fatties...best personalities in the game.
