Anyway on googling his name I see he was 183 cm, 78 kg which surprised me as I always thought rugby players are heavy blokes. Am I wrong, are there certain positions for lighter players ?

In the modern era backs are as big as forwards typically, but in the good old days Rugby League was a game that could be played at the highest level by any body type and size. There still plenty of little blokes play it now. 

Alfie Langer, one of the best players of the modern era

Why ask such a stupid question ? You obviously have no interest in the game - & never will have. Your life must be so bloody boring Whale. Get off here for a while & get some life exposure. Deary me - bit like me asking if ballerinas always wear white ! At least it got PTs obsession with Trump a bit of relief I suppose.

No interest in ballet either but dopey's question prompted some interest in outfits

On stage, a ballerina may wear a variety of different costumes, depending on the style and/or ballet she is performing.  If performing a classical role, she may be wearing a classical or romantic tutu.  If it is character role, she may be wearing a longer, fuller dress with character shoes.

In contemporary ballets, the costumes are usually more form fitting to better show off the interesting lines and positions in the choeography, as well as the dancer’s physique.

Changa was a freak, one of the best side steps of all time, reasonably tall for the day, wiry and tough, and one of the few full time "professionals" in the 70's ... the only reason for that was that his day job was Captain/Coach!

I am very interested in fitness, body types and attributes suited to different sports.

I imagine that Rugby players are more explosively powerful, better sprinters but not such good endurance athletes and agile as AFL players.

Correct me if I am wrong.

And the old dude who founded Ikea furniture died in his 90ies.  Worth squillions and bought everything he owned from op shops.  Shame some young bimbo didnt grab him and cash in.  Such a waste of a fortune. Wonder did he give any to charity .

In theory a charitable foundation owns IKEA, but it may be an elaborate tax dodge, because the amount the charitable foundation spends on charity is miniscule compared to its assets.
