Actually, as a girl, I find most of the swimmers in my year far more attractive physically than the rugby players...but I know they do some strength and conditioning too.
If you're over 5'11 then you probably don't have to worry about stunting? Depends on your age obviously and if you're still fairly young, whether you've had your growth spurt or are still growing.

It doesn't stunt your growth, google it and you'll see this question asked all over the internet and always answered the same.

Yes. I know a guy who has been squatting for 19 years, he used to be 6'5'' now he's 4'3'' but he is a TANK so it was worth it.

Around 16, but it was boring so I stuck with hardcore swimming instead which I still do.

Dude don't believe the whole stunting your growth myth. It's not true. The only way it is possible to stunt your growth is to damage a growth plate and that wont happen if you're are training correctly with good form.

mate, refer to
Appropriate strength-training programs have no apparent adverse effect on linear growth, growth plates, or the cardiovascular system,1,10,11,28,29

I think you should join a gym or undergo a programme of 5 days weekly, in swimming, moderate weights training and skipping.
