Fastest players on the Lions tour revealed, including speedy forward

SCOTLAND forward Hamish Watson has been named among the fastest player on the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour so far.

The flanker, nicknamed Pinball, clocked at a powerful 20.2 miles per hour during a break against the Sharks, edging him past some of the other backs.

England speedster Anthony Watson misses out on the list due to very limited game time on the tour thus far.

The rest of the top five is made up by back-three players with a certain Welshman taking the top spot.

FASTEST LIONS PLAYERS:

#5. Hamish Watson (Scotland) – 20.2mph

The 29-year-old has gradually established himself as one of the northern hemisphere’s fiercest competitors since winning the first of 41 Test appearances against Italy at BT Murrayfield in 2015, and is now looking to make his mark in the famous red jersey.
