Most of today's footballers have body-builder-like physiques, and I'm wondering if this is necessary. Take Cameron Smith as an example of my argument that you don't have to be physically imposing to (a) be a great footballer and (b) to remain injury free. Regardless of what non Storm fans (that's me) think of him I do marvel at his durability. He looks like an average bloke. If he has muscles they are well hidden. He's not big, nor heavy yet he plays 80 minutes in every match, including all representative fixtures, in a very tough position against behemoths . . . and he never gets hurt; never even seems to be treated for an injury. How is this possible? Are footballers overdoing the weights? Is Smith a throw back to the likes of Johnny Raper and Ray Price who were just ordinary builds but took the most extroadordinary punishment and rearely got hurt?
