    Certianly a strength element to tackling. You clearly donít require elite PL strength to be a good tackler as shown by the guys playing rugby or NFL who donít have elite strength. Proper technique plays a massive role. Put your strongest powlerliter on a football field and watch him get steamrolled by blokes that know how to tackle.

    Ill say it again if PL strength was that important why donít those blokes try out for a NFL team and sign a 5m contact straight away

    Certianly (there is) a strength element to tackling. You clearly donít require elite tackling strength to be a good powerlifter as shown by the guys who are winning world championships. Playing rugby or NFL doesn't need elite strength. Proper technique plays a massive role. Put your strongest rugby or NFL on a platform and watch him get steamrolled by Gerry (@stronkmanlet).

    Ill say it again if tackling was that important, why donít those blokes try out for a spot on the Australian team and set a few world records.

    I agree. Like I said in my previous post ďJust like rugby players are not setting squat world recordsĒ. Manlet seems to think that an elite powerlifter can just walk on a field and start tackling people into the next universe.

    Actually I donít agree with it at all. What NFL lineman on a few mil contract thinks sweet. Iíll go powerlift with the chance of winning half a pizza if Iím lucky as the prize money. Also Iím pretty sure there are nfl blokes out lifting Gerry with ease.

    yes i do think that an elite powerlifter would seriously put some hurt on. Im not talking about a 44 yr old midget age grade fluke artist such as myself but someone with say a 300+ raw squat a 200 bench and a 300 dead would have the power to seriously injure.

    I remember watching "The Rookie" where Geyer and co look for an up and comer to give an NRL contract to and Geyer was going ga ga over a 115 kg forward high squatting 180 kgs. Some of the weights these guys were doing were pitiful.

    yea, it is shame some dont get it, but what can you do.

    apparently richmond's martin is a weak bench presser but so strong on the field brushing players off like they are flies.

    as if he gives a fuck about being good at powerlifting, hey bazza.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.
