Didn’t Drummond break that record?

If only you had an implant in your brain to raise your level of thinking to that of the average moron.

Imagine if Martin had been injected with cheetah dna? How fast would he have been?

I think you've finally cracked it professor! If we combine your well respected theories, we could inject part of Brad Fittler's brain into Joe Greenwood, combined with cheetah DNA and the coaching of Kelvin Skerrett, he could become an unstoppable rugby league legend. You wouldn't have to recommend we concede games then!

Most idiotic post ever goes to Grimmy..... The way to restart should be an arm wrestle between a designated player from each side.

I had forgotten Drummond won a sprint on superstars - wikipedia "Drummond's rise to celebrity status was precipitated by his performances in the televised all-around sports competition Superstars, finishing second in the 1983 Series final,[13] and clocking a world competition record 10.85 seconds for the 100 metres (noted Great Britain rugby league speedster Martin Offiah was reported to have recorded a hand held 10.8 seconds for the 100, showing just how fast Drummond was)."

Didnt Mark Forster win a sprint comp at central park. They had a sprint on SKY RL in recent times with a rep from every team, there was a cumbrian lad expected to win it I cant remember who did.

Keith Fielding I think won the Champion of Champions on Superstars.
if he wasn't the fastest ever on Superstars he must have been very high in the pecking order.

I remember seeing him at Central Park in I think the late 60's and he scored 2 absolute belters. I recall thinking when I first saw Offiah was he quicker than Fielding because the two of them are the fastest guys I can recall on a rugby pitch.
Neither Fielding or Offiah would get a game today in SL because they didn't do the "hard yards" :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Lydon was fast he never looked like he was trying, Calvert was the player I was thinking of. One of the tries that stands out for me was Joel Tomkins for England against the exiles at Headingley length of the field interception never looked like getting run down.
