I watched my first Aviva Premiership game in forever.
I was quite literally stunned by the size and bulk. Its not the same game anymore, a far cry from what I used to play.
Ridiculous isn't it! Even compared to Rugby League the players are monstrous now.
Example - Sam Burgess is a 2nd rower/lock when he plays for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, has also played Prop Forward for them and England. When he went to the Rugby World Cup, he was a f$&king outside centre!!!
Sonny Bill Williams, same thing. I thought League was bad, but when you look at today's Union players, things seem pretty grim.
