    CW Rugby XV

    After it being mentioned in the big/small little/tall thread, what would a hypothetical CW XV look like?

    So be honest, only those that would play a contact game of Union should put their names down.

    Im a League guy but Ill use Union as more are familiar and we can get by with less athleticism in Union

    Put your name, height, weight and list 3 possible positions (try and be realistic about where you have played before and put the most favourible first)

    Lets see if we can form a team out of what is available.

    Kev Gough. 6'1" 105 kgs. (1) Fullback, (2) Wing, (3) Centre

    Rob Bowen 6'4" 107 kgs 1) lock 2) Number 8 3) bench.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Rugby was the only sport I was any better than "all right" at, mainly because being big with a tendancy to violence is a virtue. Played district and county in my youth. Still have the scars on my knuckles from me twatting an opposing hooker in a bit of afters.

    As a kid I used to play lock (I was 6' tall by the age of 13), but, as my bollocks dropped at a precociously early age, I hardly grew any more after then and consequently moved back thru the scrum to no.8 & then blindside flanker.

    Played league at uni (pretty hard to avoid in Hull), mainly at prop and second row. It's a far less technical game than the senior code, but you do need to be much fitter cardio-vascularly speaking. It's pretty relentless.

    Play as either blindside flanker or in the centres if they are short in the back depo. I've never really been anything more than OK/Decent at rugby, I do enjoy playing though, I just prioritise (sp?) Hockey over it.

    I played wing for six years because i could run fast and was hard to get hands on. I then moved to full back for a year after finally deciding it might be a good idea to tackle sometimes and having a stylish but not-overly-useful Dan Parks-esque kick action which led coaches to overestimate my kicking ability.

    I was never much good, bar the odd wonder-try that quick tiny people always come out with on occasion. I went to a massive rugby school who win the Ulster schools cup nearly every year but i spent the whole time in the middle-ish teams feeling a bit pissed off that i was never given the option to play football.

    183-5cm, depending on flats or heels. About 70kg currently. Guess winger, or something.

    Never played rugby in a league or anything, just with mates after school or during school when we could get away with it (tackling of any sort was banned). Good times.
