Rugby League and Rugby Union are field games like AFL, however the physical preparedness necessary of the players is quite different. Rugby players generally carry more muscle, which is important for the physical nature of the game, and slightly higher bodyfat levels offering greater skeletal protection from regular, hard impacts.
While Rugby players are required to have substantial levels of fitness, there is a greater emphasis on strength and explosiveness. Rugby players would typically have a 50/50 mix of strength and cardiovascular training, with an optimal bodyweight substantially higher than most AFL players.
Now that means more muscle, which leads us to Bulk Ambassador Luke Casey! Luke is not only a male model but an experienced rugby player who currently plays for the Eastwood Rugby Union Football Club.
