Gawd hunty yaassss! The thighs have it!
Rugby super hotness Carlin Isles is thigh-tastic as he runs toward the try zone to score against Uruguay during the USA Sevens Rugby tournament on January 26 in Las Vegas. The United States won 31-0. The Olympic hopeful and "fastest man in rugby" had THREE tries during the IRB Sevens World Series tournament. "His play helped the United States team take home the Shield consolation trophy," noted SB Nation.

Isles announced after last week's tournament that he will now focus on a career in the NFL as a wide receiver. The announcement followed the Lions' extension of his "contract on January 10 and he hopes to make the 53-man roster this year as a wide receiver/kick returner."
