Don't blink, you'll miss it

Sutton & Epsom RFC are claiming a world record for the fastest try ever after their Surrey Cup match against Richmond last month.

Steve Munford, their 19-year-old scrum half, reportedly charged down an attempted Richmond clearance and crossed the whitewash 7.5 seconds after the game kicked off - a try which helped his team to a surprise 16-13 victory. If confirmed, the try would apparently beat the 8 seconds credited to Andrew Brown for his try for Widden Old Boys against Old Ashtonians in 1990.

I must admit it normally takes at least 8 seconds for the message to be relayed from my brain to my legs that they need to start moving...
