FOOTAGE: Proof that England’s giant wing Cokanasiga is faster than Jordan Lamour

Jordan Larmour scored an intercept in Leinster’s match with Bath at the Rec this afternoon.

With a 10 yard headstart, the minute he touched the ball it was obvious that it was a try. Yet, the footage also shows that England’s giant wing – Joe Cokanasiga – is faster than the far smaller Larmour.

In true Larmour is more about speed over 10 to 15 metres, a more valuable attribute in elite rugby than top gear speed. All the same, Cokanasiga would clearly have caught him given another 10 metres.
