    IDK how many of you here follow Rugby (I don't), but I did think this was worth showing people. This guy (Carlin Isles) has world class speed like :cj:, but is he faster? His 100 meter time is 10.24 seconds, which I think could equate to a 4.0 40 time?

    Meh... its Rugby. He's playing against a bunch of slow white guys. And, 10.24 does not equate to a 4.0 forty.

    Obviously, we have freaking rugby threads coming up now.

    I love summer time, but as for sports to watch, summer is awful.

    It doesn't. You can't compare the two distances. At 40 yards, a world class sprinter is still accelerating. He won't reach his top speed until close to 80 meters.

    I asked you what the right number is and you come back with this nonsense? C'mon man. I know there's more to figuring it out than a simple formula, but youre telling me guys are still accelerating after 80-yards? IDK about that one.

    It equates to a 10.2 hundred yard dash. 40 yard dash is a different race, much more about acceleration than top speed

    WOW, I used to play Rugby at UT for 3 and half years. And I cannot believe this guy plays for team USA. Our USA team has been TERRIBLE for years. We never even make a tournament. Always said if more of our NFL players played on our Rugby team, we would be amazing. This is proof.

    That guy plays the Wing position. They are always the smallest and fastest on the field.
