World's fastest rugby player is...American?



Believe it or not, the fastest rugby player on the planet is an American who only learned the game a couple of years ago. With 10.13 hundred speed he also officially has the cutest smile in rugby (ok, I made that one up).

Normally a Sevens player he is now rumored to be seeking Scottish citizenship and signing with Scotland's Glasgow Warriors with an eye toward getting to the Rugby World Cup in 2015.

I'll be following...from a great distance behind no doubt.
