The Top 5 'Big Boppers' (130kg +) in World Rugby

The Top 5 'Big Boppers' (130kg +) in World Rugby
9
Comments

Huge Wallaby lock Will Skelton is making waves in Australia at the moment (almost literally), so the guys at Rugby HQ thought it was a good time to bring out their list of the Top 5 Big Boppers in world rugby. That’s Super Heavyweight status, so to get on the list a player must be over 130kg’s.

Look out for fan favourite Ben Tameifuna, and then there’s a few clips that we featured on here a while back of huge Opeti Fonua, who famously sent monsieur Wilkinson into orbit.

    Um, yeah. Those are some giants. I do enjoy a trip into the old SA memory bank, and I always recall (the late) Jan Lock as the biggest guy playing rugby. To be more accurate, Lock didn't so much play as walk from one set piece to the next. But he was a giant. North of 130kgs? I dunno, but in the amateur era, he might as well have been. http://saspa.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/Rugby-RSA-13/G0000kcYKNRQvqc4/I0000Wu.hRJpP0UU

    Excuse the pun, but there surely has to be room for Peter Stringer in that lot...

    ^^^^ That was meant to be a reply to 10stone's suggestion of a top 5 under 6ft...

    Would like to see that. Shall we have a crack at it in the meantime? Here's my first stab at it: Steffon Armitage Leigh Halfpenny Gio Aplon Jason Robinson Shane Williams Next up: top 5 under 12 stones...

    My favorite big boy of all time: Ollie Le Roux!

    One of the best Top 5s to date. Pissed myself laughing all the way through this one! Some scary mothers here too. I am looking forward to seeing Skelton dominating people over the next few years. But as well as being fucking enormous he's got brilliant dexterity and timing.
