    For starters, Sivivatu, Fauata'u, Bobo & Caucau are not NZ players. Although Sivivatu is a shoe-in for the AB's on the end of season tour to Europe after his 5 try demolition of Auckland yesterday.

    Out of that list I reckon Bobo is the quickest...but out of the NZ team apparently Rokocoko out-sprinted Doug Howlett in a 100m test during All Black trials recently.

    Caucau is quick but did you see Bobo against South Africa earlier in the year at Gosford? he can really accelerate.

    Sosene Anesi has the fastest 40m time recorded in NZ Rugby history - 4.53. He'd comfortably win over that distance, but I'd expect him to be able to hold on for 100m too.

    But they're not New Zealanders.
