How do rugby players get such thick legs?

I'm sure they lift weights, but weightlifters don't have legs like that.

I don't know much about rugby, but I'm sure it's from running up and down the fields so much. I mean, if you think about it, athletes who play sports like that (football, soccer, etc.) are not just on their feet the whole time they're in the game, they're running from one end of the field to the other for a large part of it!

They do leg exercises like squats, leg presses, etc. The reason most rugby players appear to have bigger legs than weight lifters, is most weight lifters will try to develop their muscles so they are consistent throughout their body. For instance, if they add 1 inch to the chest, they add 1 inch to the legs, arms, etc. This may produce an optical illusion that the legs are not as big.
