It has been a cracking rugby year.
The Lions claimed their first series win in 12 years, the All Blacks became The Invincibles and Wales won a topsy-turvy sort of Six Nations.
Throughout it all there have been some fantastic individual performances.
Established names and newcomers alike have proved the well is deep when it comes to talent in this wonderful game of ours.
Compiling a list such as this requires some sort of criteria, so the following top 50 has been put together with the following four in mind:
- Current international
- Big game performances
- Impact on their side
- Consistency across the year
Let the debate commence.
