Nigel Walker 100m try vs Pontypridd

Nigel Walker 100m try vs Pontypridd

The debate over the quickest wing in world rugby is one that will continue for as long as rugby itself exists. Over time we have seen some truly fast wings, but perhaps one player who has a pedigree like none other, is former Cardiff and Wales winger Nigel Walker.

Walker represented Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the 1984 Olympics in the 110m hurdles. When he unfortunately failed to make the grade in 1992, he turned to rugby and Cardiff, where he played wing.

He went on to achieve 17 caps for Wales, scoring 12 tries with his incredible speed and ability to change direction while barely slowing down, as he did here against Pontypridd.

We're trying to dig up more footage of Walker at his best, so if anyone has any footage of him that they could provide us with then please drop me an email and I'll gladly stick it up for all to see.

Note: The commentary, for those of you who are wondering, is Welsh.
