Popular Rugby Magazine Names The Top Ten Players In The World Right Now

The best of the best.

The world’s best-selling rugby magazine, Rugby World has decided to rank the top 100 rugby players in the world in this month’s issue of the popular publication.

Interestingly, despite winning back-to-back World Rugby Player of the Year awards, Beauden Barrett does not top their list, instead they’ve gone with England and Saracens playmaker Owen Farrell.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

There’s also no room for Conor Murray in the top 10, but his Ireland teammate Tadhg Furlong does make the cut in eight position. Have a look at the top 10 below and pick up this month’s issue if you want to see the full 100.
