I'm surprised that Charlie Hodgson hasn't been mentioned more. He might not be a 'fashionable' player, but he is probably the best passing fly-half bar none, and his kicking has been superb lately. Even his defence seems pretty good, which has been an area cited as his weakness. »
Not entirely sure why Charlie Hodgson isn't getting more mentions, he's been the best 10 in the premiership in 2012, and likely one of the best passers and kickers in world rugby at present. Defensively he's improved a great deal. »
They gave him a short trial stint, but didn't really give him a chance for financial reasons seemingly. However, yes, his fastest 100m time, after having some wiped for drugs offences, is 9.97s; in more recent years he's run consistently ~10s. So, significantly faster than this chap, but in RL rather than RU.
