Top 5 Players to watch!
As the countdown begins, it's time to take a look at the top 5 players who according to The Rugby Paper are set to make a mark on the tournament.
The Toulouse scrum half, known as the ‘Haaland of Rugby,’ has been the wonder kid to watch in the Six Nations. Known as a master tactician and probably the best scrum half we see on the international stage, Dupont has a flair to the game that no other Northern Hemisphere player consists of.
Ireland fans with Rugby World Cup 2023 tickets were in shock when Ireland lost their top-tier tight head prop Tadhg Furlong just before the game against Wales. Furlong has been pivotal in Ireland’s success, but Bealham ensured the setback was not too much.
Sexton, a seasoned player, is a household name in Irish rugby and is returning for another attempt at the Rugby World Cup. At 37, Sexton has aged like a fine wine.
If the All Blacks need to win this Rugby World Cup 2023, they need Aaron Smith to be their key player. One of the best half-backs in World Rugby, Smith has continuously proven what a threat he is with the ball.
The Springboks mean serious business, and the big center is set for a massive 2023 after regaining his complete fitness levels. Jessie Kriel did a fantastic job in 2022, but the likes of Am in defense will be crucial for their title defense.
