Bryan Habana’s Speed Is One Reason To Watch The Rugby World Cup (Video)

While all of America is eagerly anticipating the start of the NFL season this weekend, the rest of the world will have their sights set on New Zealand, where the 2011 Rugby World Cup is set to kick off on Friday when the hosts take on Tonga at Eden Park.

Although I may not follow the game of rugby too closely, I understand the rules of the game enough to recognize the fact that South African winger Bryan Habana has game-breaking speed.  On second thought, you probably don’t need to know a single thing about the game of rugby to realize that fact after watching the following clip.

Here is a look at some highlight reel plays from the man who may very well be the fastest player at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.  Prepare to be amazed.
