The Rugby World Cup is set to play host to a number of huge men, but here are the ten biggest of the lot…

10.Johnny Redelinghuys

The Namibian prop weighs in at a whopping 20 stone despite being just six feet tall.

9.Mike Ross

The Irish prop is another 20 stone behemoth, but at 35 years old could struggle to last a full 80.

8.Charlie Faumuina

At 20 stone two pounds the All Blacks prop has some impressive agility to display.



7.Abel de Klerk

Another monstrous Namibian prop who is 20 stone two pounds, but only five feet ten.

6.Thomas Francis

The rising Welsh star anchors down the scrum with an impressive 20 stone and six pounds.

5.Horace Pungea

The 20 stone six pound prop will ensure the Romanian scrum isn’t pushed around easily.

4.Leroy Atalifo

Fiji are already known for their power, but at 20 stone six pounds Atalifo is on another level.


3.Ramiro Herrera

Another 20 stone six pound prop, the six foot three Los Pumas man is a monster.

2.Will Skelton

The giant Aussie lock struggles to last a full game, and no wonder at 22 stone.

1.Uini Atonio

The winner by some margin, 22 stone, 11 pound French prop Atonio is an absolute beast.
