They may not be the greatest players in the world right now, but we take a look at 10 players who know how to light up a game…

1. Cheslin Kolbe

The South African winger/full back has one of the most impressive steps in rugby right now and has become known for leaving opponents for dead.


2. Christian Wade

Questions may still remain over his defence, but Wade has an ability to unlock defences that is sure to see him gain international recognition sooner rather than later.

3. Matthew Morgan

Morgan has dropped off the international radar somewhat recently thanks to his move to Championship side Bristol, but is still lighting things up.

4. Wesley Fofana

Unfortunately Fofana has been somewhat restricted in the French midfield of late due to some rather stagnant tactics, however he is still capable of moments of magic.

5. Tim Nanai Williams

Fortunately for rugby fans around the world, Williams looks set to turn out for Samoa at this years World Cup where we can witness more of his incredible skills.

6. Stuart Hogg

The Scotland full back is currently one of the most exciting players in the Northern Hemisphere, and possible the best Scottish player of the last 10 years.

7. Willie le Roux

The Springboks full back is the perfect compliment to their powerful forward pack as he creates gaps in defences with his pace and impressive steps.

8. Beauden Barrett

The All Blacks fly half may be someway of being a regular starter on the international scene, but he is showing enough to suggest he may not be far off.

9. Israel Folau

The Wallabies full back really is their stand out player, and regularly produces moments of magic to help unlock defences.


10. Anthony Watson

The young Bath and England full back/winger has produced some inspiring moments of late and looks set to have a bright future ahead of him.
