I'm on about the biff side of it

Ah ok - I guess I don't really count that any more, since the biff has all but gone from the game.

With regard Vasty's point - it's definitely an easy trap to fall into to judge the size of a player in relative terms to their peers, rather than us normal people; I encountered Broughy once in the hospitality at Shudds, whom I always perceived to be a fairly small bloke - he wasn't; likewise, Danny McGuire at Leeds - a surprisingly big lad.

Miller I think looks fairly slight in comparison to most players, because he's lean rather than muscle-bound; whereas Big Dave and Pauli are just as ridiculously huge in real life as they appear to be.

RL has, on the whole, become a game for big men - which makes the careers of Rob Burrow, Paul Aiton, Richie Myler etc all the more remarkable; they must feel like Gulliver when they take the field.
