Good interesting thread, and jogged my memory with regard to RL players and BBC's Superstars (I'm not going to get that tune out of my head now!). Offiah was the quickest I've seen, but certainly Fielding, Drummond and others mentioned also had pace.
One that comes to mind in the P&B, is Richard Henare, who looked very rapid but didn't have the durability of the others.

One of the fastest players in and out of Wigan. He must have a chapter in the worst ever signings book.

Is this Paul Sampson who played for Wakefield and then went to Union. If so he was rapid and think he came from a sprinting back ground before rugby.

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.


Is this Calvert from Wath Brow Hornets ?

If so played against him a few times he was quick and had a good centre inside him at the time as thought both would be signed
