    To show how off the mark they are, comments made about majak daw being the "strongest in the league because of his benching numbers... but wow can't explain why his endurance and speed is poor" is just reflective of the pure ignorance and bullshit and criminal acts that so often happen in pro sport.

    I believe its probably necessary yep.

    Cant see a regular fit bloke who doesnt weight train having any kind of chance on a rugby field.

    Weights are big in the AFL also. Have been for years.

    Players like Stephen Silvani, James Herd, Paul Roos, Cameron Smith etc who don't look well developed would still be naturally very strong.
    You look at the need of the individual, just cherry picking the " big movements" is not going to correct or improve the athletes abilities all the time.

    im not really sure where you're going with this anyway

    goosey is pretty right.

    hilarious stuff. you cant play rugby league if you don't do heavy weights?

    stick to powerlifting guys. big bench, big squat, big deadlift. stuff of real men.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.

    the real word is strength training, not necessarily with weights. if someone does explosive bodyweight stuff, he or she can still get very powerful.

    but I don't want to confuse anyone.

    I will leave this one to goosey.
