Moss Finn

A schools sprint champion, Finn's pace made him an expert finisher out wide.

Eddie O'Sullivan

The Garryowen winger was small, stocky and very quick. His greatest moment in red came when he scored against the 1984 Grand Slam Wallabies at Thomond Park -- unfortunately, very few people saw it because of heavy fog.

Michael Kiernan

A noted 200m runner in his youth, Kiernan had genuine speed and a beautiful style of running that was mostly used in the centre.

Richard Wallace

Rivalled only by Simon Geoghegan and Niall Woods as the fastest man in Irish rugby in the 1990s.

Anton Pitout

Only played a handful of games for Munster, but the South African Sevens player had serious gas.
