Bit of a fun thread inspired by Radio sport Fastest All Black side. My line up is purely Subjective obviously, and there are some players who have only played a handful of games in their positions. Emphasis is out and out speed as opposed to whether those players were specialists. As long as they played the position once, fast enough is good enough. To ensure the fastest team on the park, numbering in positions like Wing and backrow matter not. For example, as long as your player was a Wing in at least one game for the Warriors, ignore the numbering, I want the fastest team possible. 2. Lee Oudenryn Fastest Warrior ever. Beat Martin Offiah in a charity sprint race. Chariots Offiah was the fastest man to have played the game. Rumor has it Offiahs team mates bet against him and Chariots threw the race. I watched it and there is no doubt Offiah pissed around jogging at the start, last fifty meters Offiah turned on the after burners and almost caught Lee. 1. Glen Fisi'iahi. A close call. Legendary speed, however for fullbacks the Warriors have no lack of candidates. Wade Mckinnon would be on many peoples lists, personally I think McKinnon was better at maintaining speed while making direction changes. In a straight out speed test I would put my money on 36km per hour Flying Fish. Hon mentions to our first fb Phil Blake, then Brent Webb, Lance Hohia, Tuimoala Lolohea and Kevin Locke. 5. Nigel Vagana. Few will dispute his natural speed. Many will question whether he should be picked in the center options since he spent more time there. Built like a greyhound, I'm guessing he would win in a race against a very long list of Wingers slower than Oudenryn. Manu Meli Demon Kemp Locke Mark Ellis Seam Hope Whetu Taewa 4. Manu Vatuvei Will have people scratching their heads as a center nomination, however Manu played a game at center. You can argue their are faster Wingers (I've gone Vagana for example) but thanks to that singular appearance at center, and with Vagana occupying his wing berth, I don't think the Warriors have ever played a faster center in their History. 3. Clinton Toopi. Natural speed off the mark born of quick twitch fibers and lightening reflexes, not unlike McKinnon Toopi holds his speed while making direction changes, add that to his speed off the mark and he leaves other world class candidates like Brett Tate in the dust in an out and out speed quest. 6. Shaun Johnson. Nominated by default outside his seven Jersey by virtue of wearing this number in 2016. 7. Stacey Jones. No surprises. At his peak, from a standing start, he was as quick as Johnson on an average Johnson day IMO. There the comparison ends. Johnson by comparison has off the mark speed that is sustained over a longer period in terms of their careers, and over a longer distance than Jones. 9. Lance Hohaia. Not a lot need be said here. Apart from...for pure speed at Hooker the Huntly Hobbit, could burn tiring defences with his speed better than anyone. hon mentions to other speed Hookers: Syd Eru for testing +ve for speed on Tour with Kiwis by virtue of taking pseudo ephidrine cold and flu tabs on tour with the Kiwis. He was probably the fastest true hooker we have had in our colors along with PJ Marsh. 12. Sione Faumuina. Fastest Non Hooker Forward in Warrior history. Who can forget him burning the Bulldogs back line in the Meli 5 try performance....record breaking NRL finals game. Faumuina could move out. 11. Tony Tatupu. Not unlike Faumuina, Tony was in the mould of a center/backrow Forward and had genuine pace...the kind that a nostalgic Dean Bell mistakenly assumed ex centerst Simon Mannering, Lewis Brown, and Dominique Peroux must retain after becoming forwards.... Funny thing is, in Tutupu's day, people expected NZ forwards to be Mobile and he was one of the best examples of where that thinking stems from. 13. Konrad Hurrell. Played a game in the back row off the bench V the Cowboys. Somewhat of a cheat nomination, but is possibly as quick as Faumuina and in the same speed classas Tatupu. 8. Joe Vagana. Ex center who at his peak as a baby Prop was faster than any other Warrior forward outside of Hooker I can think of. Played in the Warriors only ever game at Carlaw park in 1995 as an unknown off the Bench. Made a break on the Warriors twenty and was chased by Maninga who juat managed to stop him in the try line. Fastest Prop in Warrior history then daylight. 10. Steve Price. Possibly slower than Mr Effective over the first twenty, and Ali who played prop too, but Price is one of the few Warrior props with the engine to sustain a pace to score a length of the field try. Excuse the random listing of players. It is deliberate. I have tried to go from fastest overall to next fastest, as opposed to chronological numbering ala one to thirteen. Coach: Andrew McFadden. Hon mention Tony Kemp. The rest don't have NRL track records as running backs, Cappy was pretty quick back in the day.. Bench 14. Phil Blake 15. Villasante 16. Sam Rapira 17. Paleaaesina 18th Man Denom Kemp. What a disappointment. Fastest Bronco before Joining the Warriors from a pretty quick brissy back line.
