There’s No Substitute For Speed

Richard Kahui is perhaps only a well known name in the rugby fraternity especially in New Zealand. He is a very talented centre who has represented the New Zealand All Blacks. A centre in rugby is a crucial position who would be the second last line of defense who doubles crucially as the man who would release the talented speedy wingers. Nonetheless in a few test, Kahui was played as a winger. he is such a talented player that he was able to score I believe two tries eventhough he was predominantly a centre. When interviewed on which position he would prefer playing, as any good All Black, he stated, ANY POSITION, as long as I’m playing.

In the short interview though he stated something, so obvious yet so many times missed by so many people. He said, ” I’m probably the slowest winger around”. Yes, he might be a talented player but he recognized that speed was not his forte. And as a winger, when the crunch time comes, you would need speed. There is simply no substitute for good ol pace.

In life, you would need to study the situations to know what is the needed ‘speed’ for you in facing the crunch time.

In driving, the speed = the horse power

In love = continous

In crime/business = innovation

IN UNIVERSITY PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE = READING, IF NOT DURING THE CRUNCH TIME YOU WILL FALL SHORT
