I'm 5"10 and i'm 9 stone, 15 stone is very overweight.
That makes you underweight, so not really a fair comparison.

I swear to god you talk more sense than anyone else on this site.
You're far too kind and a very good sense-talker yourself!

If he has decent muscle mass, probably not. If not, probably. None of us can tell without looking at him or seeing measurements.

Impossible to say without knowing if it's muscle or fat, and whether the measurements you gave are accurate. If he's concerned about his weight, point him in the direction of his GP who can help, if he's not bothered, with the greatest respect you need to back off a little as if it's for pure vanity reasons and he's happy and exercises regularly then it's up to him.

He is fat. Just because you "play rugby" doesn't make you, not fat.

If he was 15 stone of muscle and 10% body fat, you would not be asking this question.

Right, so people now have to be doctors to say people are overweight, just like you need an English degree to post on a forum.
Well how are we meant to know if he is overweight?? We can't see through screens, going to a doctor will sort that out.

9 stone is very light for your height

I'm 5'10'' and I weigh 12 stone 8 and am classified overweight by BMI however considering my bf% is about 15% I'm not overweight
