he slipped in the aus sprint challenge at the start and Phil Ford? Offiah scored 10 tries v Leeds when he was fullback. Skinned him with utter ease.
Was that against Lee Oudenryn?, remember that guy being quick
All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.

Odenryn got a better start, the distance stayed the same after that. In the game Offiah scored twice and Odenryn couldn't catch him.

I remember a testimonial game at Central Park, maybe Martin Dermott’s. At half time Offiah had a race against Ade Mafe, 200m Commonwealth Games athlete. Offiah beat him over the length of the pitch. They ran in boots and with a ball in hand.

Up until Dwayne Chambers trial game for Castleford I’ve never seen anyone as fast on a rugby pitch.

Yes it was Derm's .

Remember Martin Dermott entering the sprint challenge and doing nothing but muck about at first, was a really fun day.

Truth is nobody will ever be able to prove who was the fastest - the comparison of a player running at full speed and a defender having to try and catch him (often from a standing start or having to turn) is invalid. A yard start will always favour the attacker. Offiah will always be up there as one of the fastest without a doubt but the fastest? No one can truly say.

true but the defender is running without a ball in hand so is easier to run and can run more natural. thats when I saw Offiahs proper speed when he chased back, wasnt often but was crazy, crazy pace. Like when Dallas caught Sullivan at the DW.

One winger we had and who wasn't the fastest, became a legend for the club IMHO. But what he could do, was be exceptionally 'quick off the mark'. He was at top speed in one stride.

And another skill he had, to quote Ray French; "This feller can sidestep on a tanner".

John Ferguson was his name.
