Speed is an important factor in all sports, and things are no different in rugby union.
There have been a lot of fast players to play the 15 aside game at international level, and some of them have even been the best players in the game.
A race, or set of races, would definitely be the easiest way to settle the debate about the fastest players, but that will never happen for a number of reasons—one being that some players on this list are retired.
In any case, we will try and sort out who are some of the fastest rugby players to have played the game.
Here they are. Enjoy
