5. STUART HOGG – SCOTLAND – 11.6 SECONDS (100M)
The Scotland captain broke his countries record by hitting a top speed of 36.8kmh (just under 23mph) in a match during the 2020 Six Nations. His blend of speed and evasive running will be key for Gregor Townsend’s side once again heading into the 2021 tournament.
