American Knight To Play For Southland 7s

Some fans may already be familiar with Steven Knight. He's a former American football player who has been down in New Zealand trying to get into rugby. Like Carlin Isles he is blazing fast and has already been called the "fastest man in New Zealand rugby." Knight has been playing club rugby in Christchurch and will have another opportunity to show what he can do as he lines up for Southland in a 7s tournament this weekend. He is being eyed as part of the Southland team that will attempt to qualify for the national 7s tournament in New Zealand. The 26 year old is still raw and he has a ways to go as a rugby player but it's still good to see him get time in New Zealand. Given his speed he also might be worth a look for the Falcons or another U.S. development side.
