Dont know that hes the quickest, but probably not near the likes of Habana.
But, honourable mention for Mike Pike a Canadian.
Had the gas to outpace the Kiwis over 80m for an interception at the 2003 RWC(i think). Cracking score.

Not really on the subject but thought i would mention topsy ojo.
Hes quick but he looks so slow. I was screaming at the tv for him to get a move on when he scored that breakaway against new zealand.

That would be awesome! However I imagine the powers that be in the corridors of the IRB somehow think otherwise, like with Japan and NZ. I really hope England doesnt bid for the WC they are considering. i seem to recall a developing nation also bidding and I reckon they should have first dibs. Unfot...

with the way the squad is going something totally foreign and completely unrelated to the club should suit.

I am sure he is a good player, but...

Another foreigner, how is this going to fit in with player quotas (or is he here as some kind of kolpak).
Why do we not go for someone English or developed through the club?

Looking at the team for next season i am seeing a lot of foreigners.

i reckon kay wont make it. nor varndell
crane is probably on the border between senior and saxons.
chuter will either be in the senior squad or not at all.
There is no point having him at the saxons a this stage in his career.

I think given time Backy could be a good coach.
Also I hope his departure was not completely amicable. It would be terrible to have another Deano style occurence where the relationship between club and club legend becomes soured. Good luck to both of them.

Imagine the Tigers haka if Kiss came and did the coaching. Novelty long tongues, make up and fake blood everywhere. That would scare the opposition.

I don't think weight is at all an issue now. Look at Julian White. Hes not the biggest prop, but he is one of the best scrummagers (I bet Os duRant is still having nightmares about him). Props these days seem to be slimming a bit as the rest of the field bulks up. What people seem to really want is ...

most expensive - £3.70 (i think, i was in shock at the time) pint at Twickenham. Just beat Wembley prices.
Cheapest, any sam smiths pub. Goats heads in Oxford 1.90 a pint. Uni bars as well.
For true value for alcohol you cannot beat the might of the dark pango.
