Thanks for the clip muncher. one poster there said - he has been recorded a 100m run in 10.7secs.
I think he would need to debulk a bit - drop to say 103 kg - JP's weight . Man he would surely have been an all time great. He is also able to step well and has a very good hand off. Running against backs he would have been awesome.
One gets the moer in thinking about what might have been. Here in SA wherever we find a big fast back we think we are brilliant in turning him into a forward!!!
Consider the following who may all have been top level backs - we tend to be shorter on backs than forwards - Brits, Deon Fourie, Spies, Burden, Kan Kan, Koster, Kolisi, Scurra, Daniel? Who else.
We would no doubt have turned sbw (110kg) int o a number 8 etc!!!!
