New World Record?

Cross Keys RFC believe that they could be in contention for a World Record for the fastest rugby union try.

Last Friday, Carwyn Penny, on permit from Dragons for this match, touched down after around seven seconds in the 21-18 defeat to Cardiff in Ystrad Mynach.

We believe the current fastest record rugby union try was by Dafydd Howells for Wales U20 v Fiji in 2014.

Ian Golden from our official data supplier, Sporting Records Online, was at the ground on Friday and he was first to report on this try.

The Dragons then placed Penny’s try as an inset to Howells’ and this was the result…

Ian at Sporting Records then had a further look at the try this morning and came to this result…

It’s still a very tough call isn’t it? Here’s a picture from the point where we believe that Penny touches down and Howells is still in the air.
