We take a look at the top 10 fly halves in world rugby right now, and rate them based on form ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

10.Finn Russell

The Scotland fly half has now only re-energised his countries back line, but also led Glasgow to their first ever Pro12 title of late.

9.Lima Sopoaga

The Highlanders man has had a super season, leading his team to a maiden Super Rugby title, and now breaking into the All Blacks squad.

8.Dan Biggar

Biggar provides a consistent option for Wales in the number 10 shirt, and has proven he can compete at the top level for club and country.


7.George Ford

Ford still has a long learning curve ahead of him, but when fully firing he has proven to be absolutely devastating for Bath and England.

6.Pat Lambie

The Springboks fly half has a fight on his hands to wrestle the number 10 jersey away ahead of the World Cup, but has the tools to do so.

5.Handre Pollard

Pollard is currently in possession of the Boks 10 jersey, however there are some questions over him, particularly when it comes to his kicking.

4.Beauden Barrett

Barrett orchestrated the Hurricanes back line all the way to the Super Rugby final, but couldn’t quite clinch it for them in the last game of the season.


3.Bernard Foley

There are many critics of Foley, but he has proven consistently throughout the season to have all the skills necessary, although he did struggle in the play-offs.

2.Dan Carter

Injuries have hampered Carter significantly of late, but if he can remain fit throughout the World Cup he could be back to the best in the world.

1.Johnny Sexton

Sexton has been a bit hit and miss in France, but in an Ireland shirt he has proven to be the most vital component of Joe Schmidt’s side.

Who do you think is the best fly half in the world right now?
