Rugby bosh

As players continue to get bigger, the hit’s we are seeing are getting better and better. Here are 10 of the biggest and baddest bosh merchants in rugby;

1. Manu Tuilagi

It’s amazing to think Tuilagi is still only just 23 given his size and power, just check out the video below to see how good he is at running over the top of just about anyone in rugby;


2. Rene Ranger

The former All Blacks man has all the pace and skill to get round the opposition but often opts to use his power to go straight through them;

3. Logovi’i Mulipola

The Samoan prop has a surprising turn of pace for such a big man but there’s no doubting his ability as a world class bosh merchant;

4. Duane Vermeulen

Vermeulen has become an integral part of the current Springboks team as his powerful running and defence ensure opponents attempt to give him a wide berth;

5. Ma’a Nonu

Nonu may have developed his game significantly over the last 18 months but his best attribute is his ability to barrel over opponents at will;


6. Julian Savea

Another young player who continues to amaze with his power, Savea looks like the second coming of Jonah Lomu as he marauds through opposition defences with ease;

7. Mathieu Bastereaud

Many fans continue to question Bastereaud’s inclusion in the French midfield given his limited skill-set but put the ball in his hands and he can do some serious damage;

8. Sam Burgess

NRL star Burgess is on his was to Bath later this year and will look to bring his bulldozing style of play to union as he aims to break into the England squad for the 2015 World Cup;


9. Ben Tameifuna

The Chiefs prop is pretty much impossible to stop once he gets up a head of steam using his considerable bulk to take it to the opposition;

10. Eben Etzebeth

Any man who can put Bismarck du Plessis on his arse deserves a place on this list, and at only 22 there’s still plenty of time for Etzebeth to get bigger and stronger;

Who do you think is rugby’s best bosh merchant?
