SUMO XIII - The Biggest side ever.

I once played against Tony Banham, just after he had spent some time "away", and he was playing amateur rugby to get match-fit. He must have had twelve stone in his legs.

I could hardly get my arms round them to tackle him.

So naturally I didn't bother. :happy:

Well, he only scored about six tries, so I wasn't the only one.

You should have had former Hull FC full back George Robinson on loan for that game, Tony Banham never got past him.

Neil Budworth at hooker - he was carrying a bit of timber in the Autumn internationals

Meniniga at centre.

I can't think there can have been many bigger centres than Jamal Idris - bloke is 18st+

Neil "Kello" Kellett and Hughie Waddell as props. Not sure they actually played at Sheffield at the same time, but they were both well padded, especially "Kello"

Owen Craigie 6, Bobby Goulding 7

Tony Kemp would eat Owen Craigie for the stand off spot.

Who was that Saints forward who was about 6 foot 8? I think he once deliberately headed the ball to set up a try, unless I have just made that up.

John Harrison? Not exactly a chubber though more like a giraffe.

Stuart Evans wasn't exactly trim

Adam Doyle (one of many Warrington's late-90s one season wonders) at stand-off.

Doyle doesn't even qualify as a one-half wonder, never mind one season.

But on a related note, Graham Appo might work as a pint-sized porker across the backline.

Right wing has to be W.J.Boston (circa 1967/68).

Feka, Rose and Solomona would definitely be the Modern Day Props.

Being an amateur 15st Second Row I must admit running into 20st+ Props isn't the most enjoyable experience. I'm sure Portsmouth (or maybe Southampton?) have a 22st Prop. Dude is freaking huge! There's footage of me online running into the guy and bouncing backwards off him. :lol:
