Spotlight – Perry Baker

Perry Baker United States USA 7s Sevens WellingtonThe United States took another step forward in Wellington, and one name who stood out was Perry Baker, quickly evolving into more than just a finisher. While the team might not have quite achieved the results they could Рand should Рhave had, there was a clear improvement, and once they tighten up the areas of their game that let them down (goal kicking, discipline) they will be a real force to be reckoned with. The ability of Michael Friday to call upon both Carlin Isles and now Baker has given the side two world class speedsters, a luxury that few if any other teams on the circuit can boast. The Olympics now look well within their sites, and is it too far-fetched to suggest they might be in medal contention in 18 months?
