Rumour has it...

Possibly an elaborate hoax, but according to the tweets of diminutive former Welsh wing wizard, Ickle Shane Williams, Amman United RFC (his former rugby club) have secured the services of 5 times World's Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski.

If true, the 300lb, 6ft 1in colossus will be gracing the rugby fields in WRU Division 3 West. Rumours that his maternal grandmother went by the name of Mfanwy Blodwyn Davies remain unconfirmed.

I wonder what position he would play?

Mariusz Pudzianowski already had a short spell on the rugby pitch. He used to play for Polish club "Budowlani Lodz". I had a privilage playing against him, he was enormous! He only played in a few games, and was used as a kind of an advert to attract more spectators.
He was a prop, unfortunately his amazing strength couldn't be fully used as he lacked basic technical rugby skills.

He is a top bloke! His legend is still alive in Poland. He is very proffessional and friendly. Always have time for his fans.

The story about his come-back to rugby was made up by journalists. He said that his focus will go to fighting (MMA) rather than rugby.
