The England vs France clash at Twickenham is today in London – here’s how the two 2021 Guinness Six Nations teams shape up.
Wales vs England: Fastest player
JONNY MAY – England – 10.71 SECONDS (100M): With a strong argument to be England’s quickest wide man ever, May is gradually improving his finishing prowess and is now arguably the first name on the teamsheet for head coach Eddie Jones.
VIRIMI VAKATAWA – France – 11.3 SECONDS (100m) – He truly is such a talented player. The Fijian-born French International has played at an unreal level for Racing 92 of late and will be a key part of Les Bleus World Cup campaign. His speed and power make him a unique player.
