    Well when I started playing rugby I just joined a team and had a good 2-3 year regime of beer and just eating anything. The joys of playing prop...

    Although at uni having to take it seriously (boo), had to start eating more lean meats, veg, less alcohol, lifting things and doing runs outside of training.

    To be honest mate it depends what position rugby player you are, its not like footballers. A winger should train differently to a number eight, and a fly half should train differently to a prop.

    Do you want to just look like one or are you actually going to play?

    If you just mean get big (zzz) chest press and bicep curl every day for one year and you'll be HUGE

    A skinny guy is never going to be big, you can put on muscle, but you can't end up looking like a ANDREW sheridan if you've got the bone structure of pete doherty.

    That's nonsense.

    Most huge guys start of really skinny, that's how a huge portion of bodybuilders get into the sport.

    My point is that you don't get huge, your skeletal structure stays the same and muscle is put on around it. Using the rugby example, you can have a guy with a slim build but still muscular who would be better as a back, or guys who originally have large builds who make better forwards.

    maybe I wasn't clear in my first post. Apologies.

    I think if you start young enough, it can have some benefit towards a larger frame. Just a hypothesis. Dunno if it's been studied (how would it?).

    11.5 stone really isn't heavy enough for a rugby player, even though your small and gonna be a scrumhalf.

    I'll google the england scrum halfs now...

    Harry Ellis [5'10, 13 stone 8]
    Danny Care [5'8, 13 stone 4]
    Paul Hodgson [5'8, 12 stone 2]

    So theres a guess of the proper weight to aim for, 12.5 stone+.

    Start upping the calories and protein intake, don't be crazy eating KFCs and Mcdonalds all over the place, being a rugby player you want to stay fit and relatively lean. Aim for 4-5 meals a day consisting of lean meats, carbs and veg, train hard, play hard!

    Just wondering, where do you live and who do you play for? Also do you play at uni?
