Alright so i'm in grade 12 and don't even know the rules of rugby. It is my final year in high school and have never joined a team sport. I know that I can make the team as I am in good athletic condition, as I work out 3-5 times a week. I'm an ectomorph (aka skinny **** ahaa). I'd definitely be a runner/sprinter. I'm a solid 145 pounds at 6 foot , but I have a good power to weight ratio (bench 185 if it matters). Who here has played rugby before? Is it a great sport to get involved in? What position would I be put into with my "frame".

Try it out. Unless you live in Wales or some other place where rugby is really popular you shouldn't have any trouble making the team. You will probably be a winger or another back position since you're thinner and faster.

I'd say no, it doesn't matter what kind of shape you're in, if you're joining in the last year of school, you're going to be playing with people who've been playing for years, and they're going to fuck your sh*t up.

if you are 6 foot and 145 pounds i think its very unlikely that you can bench 185 pounds. any easier for you?
wat.

rugby is amazing. i started in my grade 9 year (grade 11 now), and i love it. at first its seems weird but its actually pretty easy to pick up. and based on your stature id say your a winger or fullback.
#15
Rugby is win but make sure you play Union with your Frame you'll probably be a good winger, Fullback or possibly a Flanker.
#16
i used to play a sh*theap of rugby in london but the guys that play here are a bunch of asshats so i said id hold off till college.
definitly join the team, at least try it out dude.
you'll be a back, and probably a winger. but if you get the hang of tackling you could be a full back(a very valuble player)
but i dont know too much about the back line, i've always been in the forwards, usually prop or 2nd row flanker
