Carlin Isles, U.S. rugby player



I don't think these are the best rugby teams in the world he's playing, but its pretty damned funny how they have no idea how to get the angle on him.

article about Carlin Isles previewing this weekend's Vegas 7s

Hell, I don't know... never paid attention.



They don't have IRB World Rankings for 7s, but here's the current overall rankings of rugby teams in the world

quote:

Position (last week) Member Union Rating Point
1(1) NEW ZEALAND 90.08
2(2) SOUTH AFRICA 86.94
3(3) AUSTRALIA 86.87
4(5) ENGLAND 83.90
5(4) FRANCE 83.49
6(6) IRELAND 81.33
7(7) SAMOA 78.71
8(8) ARGENTINA 78.71
9(10) ITALY 77.82
10(9) WALES 77.27



In Rugby Sevens, probably looking like this:
1. New Zealand
2. Fiji
3. Samoa
4. England
5. South Africa

Isles has made the rounds here before, but no rugby guy is going to "Germans" you here. Always worth re-watching. Way to school 'em up, bus.

How the shite did Wales go from Grand Slam to lower than Italy in the course of a year?

They were old as hell and had a bunch of injuries if I remember correctly. Haven't been able to follow it that much this year though .

They are.

I think even NFL players would be stunned about taking an angle on that guy on an actual rugby pitch. People have no idea how much space there is on those fields. If you had taken someone like Isles and put him in a rugby country from birth he'd be unstoppable. He'll still have a decent career if he commits himself just because of his unteachable speed.

For anyone interested in seeing him play live he'll likely get some decent minutes in the 7s tournament this weekend. NBC carries it I believe.

It's all Shane Williams' fault for retiring.

Shane is the reason I started following rugby. I remember the first time I saw him and Wales in the Six Nations I about fell out of my seat! Damn that team was fun to watch.

He didn't look to hot missing that pass for the go ahead score in that loss to Wales in Wellington this past weekend.

He's still a raw talent. Give it time, and hopefully those faux pas will happen less frequently.
