DAILY BREAD VICTOR OBUGU
WHAT THE ENGLAND PROP FORWARD ATE ONE DAY LAST WEEK
Sunday 11 June 1995
When we all got together again after the match, I had a couple of ham and salad sandwiches. We had a barbecue to go to in the evening, so I was saving myself for that. There, I gave the salad a miss and went straight for the chicken - lots of it. I must have eaten more than half a chick- en, along with a few white bread rolls. But I passed, so to speak, on the dessert because I was too full. If there's ever a chocolate pudding around, or a tiramisu, I'm the first one to dive straight in. I also drank a couple of glasses of red wine with the meal. We're not hugely restricted in our drinking, but it does have to be in moderation. Moderate for a rugby player, I suppose. I don't drink alcohol every day, anyway. When I'm at home I usually go out to eat rather than cook for myself. I suppose my diet is fairly healthy; I don't like eating lots of fatty foods anyway. There's no official weight you need to reach and maintain to play at this level, but weighing 16st 10lb does help. You don't want to lose too much weight when you're a prop forward like me.
