LIST: The seven fastest rugby players in the world

5. OLLIE THORLEY – England

 Lightning speed – he ran the 100m in 10.6 seconds aged 16 – and an eye for the try line. Thorley is also an eccentric character as highlighted in this recent interview by Sportsmail‘s Nik Simon.


6. VIRIMI VAKATAWA – France

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.


7. JACOB STOCKDALE – Ireland

In March 2018, Stockdale received the 2018 Six Nations Player of the Tournament Award after setting a try-scoring record of 7 as Ireland claimed the title and won their first Grand Slam since the 2009 victory. Unplayable on his day.
