Australia’s new kid on the block, Maurice Longbottom, showed a great turn of pace for his first try as they dismantled Russia, while Tim Agaba, for South Africa, was able to reach a speed of 20mph as he tore away from the Kenyan team, to seal his side’s victory.

But a real stand out moment came from the ever explosive Dan Norton, as he reached a speed of 22mph, after taking the ball from his own 5-metre line to race down the other end leaving the French defence scrambling as England claimed the win.
