Just watched the England game highlights and was shocked at the size of George Burgess gut. Looks like hes been eating nothing but doner meat and chips for the last 2 years. Anybody know what his weight is? He must be 20 stone!

During the game, I think it was Kevin Brown said something like you wouldn't want someone weighing 135kgs running at you about George when he was steamrolling over the French. I thought he was exaggerating at the time but he can't be far off.

On Whippets and Flatcaps last week they both said probably 130kgs at the moment which is 20st. Absolute units. Alot of NRL forwards carry a bit round the middle, its the hardest bit to get rid of isnt it?

it may be aesthetically unappealing but its all a matter of whether the benefits of the mass outweigh the impact on aerobic fitness.
if hes fit enough to do the minutes, then bulk is fine, so its not a matter of not being able to lose the weight, but working out the max weight he can be whilst being able to have sufficient minutes in him
Ah, good taste!
What a dreadful thing!
Taste is the enemy of creativeness.

I was genuinely surprised by it too. Tom looked so much trimmer and fitter. I think Tom has surpassed George as the better of the two now as well. Great to see from 2 Bradford products
