His raw speed wasnt what people make it out to be

He was very fast but not super human fast.

It was the way he could maintain that speed whilst swerving around players and he was actually a very good all round player who was always in the right place at the right time and could read the game brilliantly.

I was at the game and was sat behind the GB dugout . I was chatting to a GB player that I knew well ( he was injured and due to go on the next plane home). He told me that some of the players had money on Oudenryn.

Could be an idea for the Magic weekend.

'Fastest Man in Super League'.

Have heats and a final during the weekend. Get a sponsor to put up a prize, the winner gets to wear an appropriate sleeve badge for the next 12 months. Make stars of our players?
22 - 19 - 4

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

I'd like to watch it, but realistically it's a none-starter. No chance teams would want their wingers doing competitive 100m sprints before a game. Aside from the injury risk and fatigue, it would mess with their preparation before and after games (ie getting there early for the first heat, staying late after the game for later heats when they should be recovering, or allowing the player to travel alone). Teams at that level take this stuff seriously these days. Plus you presumably at some point have players who have played a game running against players who haven't.

Having it before the Grand Final or CC Final might work better, but obviously you would have to omit players from the finalists, and there's a fair chance players will have miraculous surgery or bugger off on holiday/back home to Aus as they did during the Exiles games. Like I say, in a perfect world I'd like to see it, and we should be looking to make stars of them.
