Is Carlin Isles the world's fastest rugby player?

While no rugby players starts off with all the skills, those same players also don't start in the national 7's team weeks after they start playing. You can teach the skills, and there's no substitute for pace (which he has in spades, aces, diamonds and hearts), but I'd generally consider more development for a player before he earns his first cap.

Having said that, if he has enough skill to deserve it (beyond his pace) after those 12 weeks of training, good on him.

Wales score bizarre try with thirteen man lineout against the All Blacks

Canada tried it against the Maori on Friday, but failed to catch the ball so it didn't come off quite as well as it did for Wales.

James Haskell big hit knocks out lock Alistair Hargreaves

Hardly a good tackle from a technical standpoint, especially when you consider a lot of forwards will lower their shoulder into a hit in close. I don't know if I'd go for a penalty on the initial reaction, but I could see the reasoning for it when you get to see Haskell's right arm swinging in over and over in the slo-mo. It really doesn't look like he wanted to use that arm to wrap in the tackle, but rather make a big impact.
