Scoring ten tries at Rugby World Cups
There are some icons on this list – the name right at the top of the list rolls off the tongue.
Of that player, former Springboks fly-half Joel Stransky has said: “He was huge, he was quick and he was skilful. In a sport of physicality and confrontation – a massive advantage – the All Blacks made brilliant use of his presence.
“To play against him was more stressful than you can imagine. Not just because one would need to tackle (the famous player), which was not an inviting thought, but he drew defenders to him, which left other great players around him in space. (His) presence changed defensive structures and strategies forever.”
Scoring ten tries at Rugby World Cups is a hell of an ask. So fair play to those on this list.
In terms of volumes of tires, did you know that there were 285 tries scored across the whole tournament in 2019.
Welsh star Josh Adams isn’t onto the list above (yet) but he was the top scorer in the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, with seven to his name.
