Gargantuan rugby union player wants to join NFL team

So, this ought to be fun: Christian Scotland-Williamson, an enormous rugby union player for the Worcester Warriors, is leaving the United Kingdom to come take a run at the NFL.

“This [is] a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me and one that I simply can’t turn down,” Scotland-Williamson said in announcing the plan. “I’m incredibly excited about testing myself and trying to get on the team roster at an NFL club.”

While he doesn’t yet have obvious interest, Scotland-Williamson is six-foot-nine and 275 pounds. You can’t teach height, as the saying goes, so he ought to get at least a few looks.

Scotland-Williamson plays as a “lock,” a position roughly equivalent to a short-yardage fullback, though he does plenty of tackling as well. Here’s a video of Scotland-Williamson in action, making a drive-into-the-turf tackle that would do J.J. Watt proud:
