Carlin Isles runs in one of his six tries in the opening leg of the GB 7s at Allianz Park.
Rhino has been proud to be Official Ball Supplier for the GB 7s for the last two seasons. This year’s series kicked off at Allianz Park in North London on Friday 23rd May, continued last Saturday May 31st at Meggetland in Edinburgh and rounds off this coming Saturday at Eirias Park in Colwyn Bay.
A stand-out feature of round one was six superb tries by the ‘Fastest Man in World Rugby’ – Carlin Isles. With a 100m best of 10.24, Isles was headhunted in 2012 by USA Rugby out of the pro American Football draft system. He has been gradually brought on in the 7s game by the US national side in the IRB HSBC World Series Sevens and has recently been getting some 15s experience with Glasgow Warriors.
GB 7s Competition Director Dickie Jeavons-Fellows commented: "Sevens is characterised by scorching pace so it’s fitting we use the Rhino Meteor ball for our international standard tournaments and great to see Carlin doing it justice ".
