I know that Beuden has a lot of pace. And Jordie isn't a slouch.
But does anyone have any insight to Scott Barrett's speed?
There is a moment in the first half where Tuilagi intercepts and England get Johhny May into space out wide. Only cover defence is Scott Barrett. He has the angle to work with, but I would have bet the house that May takes him on the outside for a sure England try.
But Barrett shuts him down and forces him inside. England knock on. Try saved.
May was an injury doubt before the semi final. He clearly wasn't fully fit as he demonstrated in the moment you referenced. There's no way a 100% May couldn't outsprint Scott Barrett.
