Rugby World Cup Legends - Players Profiles

The term legend is generally overused and this is why we have produced a very short list of those truly great Rugby players to have stared at the Rugby World Cup Final since they began in 1987. We have selected only one player per tournament and the criteria used was to identify the one player in the Rugby World Cup finals who made a contribution to their teams in winning the Rugby World Cup and those that will be regarded as the greats of the Rugby game.

The 5 Rugby World Cup legends outlined here, have been chosen by our editorial team and we hope that you will concur with the players selected.
