All Blacks now the ABs

The image of Sonny Bill Williams'
muscles bursting out of his jersey
is a legacy from a Rugby World
Cup where the spotlight has been
Massey University sport
scientists have demonstrated
visually how the All Blacks are
much bigger with more muscle
mass than their predecessors.
So now the All Blacks abbrevi-
ation the ABs is truly representa-
Scientists tracked the height
and weight of top players to create
a display titled The changing
physique of the All Blacks,
1905-2005, in the Rugby Museum
in Palmerston North.
The data also shows a trend to
players' build becoming more uni-
form, regardless of their position
on the field.
The information, from 1905 to
2005, was collected by a team
from the School of Sport and Exer-
cise led by Associate Professor
Steve Stannard and lecturer and
former Manawatu rugby player
It shows on average, a team
member in the All Blacks in 2005
was 1.87 metres tall, or 12cm
taller, than the average'' 1905
Originals player. His weight, at
102.5kg, was some 7.5kg greater
than the heaviest of the Originals.
The lightest player in 2005, at
84kg, was still 3kg heavier than
the average'' Original.
The average height of the
22-man All Blacks semifinal
squad that beat the Wallabies on
Saturday was 1.87 metres, their
weight was 105kg with another
2.5kg of lean muscle compared to
The sport scientists estimated
body shape through the Body
Mass Index (BMI) calculation. Mr
Hapeta says in 1905 the differ-
ence in BMI between players was
small with their physical sizes
and shapes all quite similar. If a
player mislaid his jersey, he could
probably borrow a near fit from a
team member,'' Mr Hapeta says.
In the 1985 pre-pro'' and 1995
semi-pro'' teams, the variance in
BMI was more than double that of
the Originals, meaning that
players were much more varied in
shape, probably due to positioning
specialisation. However, in 2005
the variation in BMI was
decreasing again with the build of
the players becoming more uni-
Traditionally, if you were short
you were put in the backs, and if
you had a puku you were put in
the forwards but that was the
amateur game. Now they want a
prototype robo' rugby player.
Guys like Sonny Bill Williams are
evening things up again.''
Mr Hapeta attributes the
reason for growth to fewer child-
hood illnesses and better nutrition
during the last century, leading to
better health and improved physi-
cal characteristics. But he says
the professionalism of the game is
a key factor in players getting
vastly fitter and larger.
They are paid to train and, per-
haps more importantly, paid to
rest,'' Mr Hapeta says. They bulk
up at the gym and the best of
sports science and nutritional
knowledge is applied to making
them bigger, faster and stronger.''
