Glasgow-bound? Carlin Isles

Glasgow Warriors are reportedly in talks to bring USA Sevens Carlin Isles, touted as the fastest man in world rugby, to Scotstoun.

The speedster has become a major attraction on the IRB World Series, and has a background as a former high level sprinter.

24-year-old Isles had been linked to a switch to the NFL, but it now appears the winger is primed for a move to Scotland and the PRO12.

Isles' acquisition may be perfectly timed for the Warriors - Sean Maitland and DTH van der Merwe are injured, while Sean Lamont and Tommy Seymour are involved with Scotland during the Six Nations.
