Am I to small for rugby?


I have a small sleek build, and I am fast and strong. I've done Brazilian Jujitsu, so I can take a beating. I have a passion for rugby, and I would love to play; however, I've noticed a lot of the players are huge, with thick legs. Is there a place for me in rugby?

Do you want your son to play for his country at rugby?

Size is not everything in rugby. For example look at George Gregan sure he is not the same player that he use to be but at 1.73m tall and only 79kg he is about to play his 125th test which stands as a world record no other rugby player has played more tests. So if you are passionate about rugby give it a crack you can play halfback like Gregan and if you do not want to run with the ball just pass it!

Rugby world cup shirt..?

two words, Shane Williams, now he is one small player, but good too

I need training help i guess.?

Not at all, you would be a great winger if you have speed, and half backs are usually of a 'smaller stature'. try and play in the backs they are usually smaller than the forewards.

So the French taking the Six Nations?

Most of the forwards in either code of rugby (league and union) are big, however in the backs there are a number of smaller players. Rob Burrow who is a professional with the Leeds Rhinos is only 5feet 5inches tall. He is agile and fast, but he also has a good tackling technique where he goes for the opponents legs.
Over time with training, weights, desire, and technique literally anyone could play rugby. As you say you can take a beating-that's half the battle over with. Go for it, and good luck.

Who are currently the top ten Rugby place kickers?

You're ok...if you have the guts, you can play. Size does not matter.

Who thinks hull fc will win salford city reds tomorow?????

There is no such thing as too small. The question is are you fast and agile enough or strong enough or skilled enough: depending on position and style of play of the team.

Really you just have to find the position which fits your size and abilities and the way your team plays and learn that position..

For example if you are fast agile and in good shape maybe a winger..
