New Zealand-born Wallaby Will Skelton – 203cm (6 ft 8 in) and about 140 kg (22 st 1 lb; 310 lb) – is thought to be one of the biggest players in the game.

However, he has two brothers even bigger than him.

In fact, Cameron Skelton, the 29-year-old brother of the Wallaby star Will Skelton (30), caused a stir this week when footage emerged of him in an Auckland club game.

Tino Junior Poluleuligaga is the general manager for the team in the video clip, Papatoetoe, a club based in Auckland, New Zealand, confirmed that the giant in the footage is the ‘younger’ brother of the veteran Wallaby.

Poluleuligaga even said in the comments that the player is ‘almost’ seven feet tall, wears 7XL shorts in the clip and the Skeltons have a younger brother who is apparently even bigger than him!

Will Skelton said of his brothers earlier this year: “I’ve got two younger brothers, Cameron and Logan. They’re 27 and 22 this year.

“I’m the smallest in the family.

“Cam is about 6’11 and Logan, the baby, is about 7’2. So they’re big boys. He’s [Logan] is huge.

“I get bullied when I go home,” said the most senior of the Skeltons.

“Logan stopped playing [rugby] when he was quite young. He wasn’t really into it.

“It was mainly me and Cam playing a lot. It just wasn’t his thing.

“Cameron is still trying to get there. He’s just got married a month ago, so he’s trying to get back on the field. He’s played Waikato, Counties NPC and he’s slowly trying to get back into good shape to play some high-level rugby.

“They were really good players growing up, Cam especially. He had a contract with the Tah [Waratahs] with me back in 2014/15. He almost wanted to split to make his own way and he headed over to New Zealand.”
