15) nEHE milner-skudder (24)
Tipped by many to be the next big thing for the All Blacks. The Hurricane shone in this season’s Super Rugby with his pace, offloading and incredible dancing feet.
11) Taqele Naiyaravoro (23)
The Fijian beast has been called up to Michael Cheika’s Wallaby squad as a result of his powerful displays for the Waratahs. This guy is capable of a big hit, a Lomu-esque hand off and can turn on the jets to devastate defenders too.
14) Anthony watson (21)
The Bath flyer had a Six Nations to remember for England as he showed great finishing ability each week to compliment his phenomenal step and speed.
12) rOBBIE HENSHAW (22):
The Connacht centre has burst on the international scene this season for Ireland having been one of the countries brightest prospects for quite a while. He looked at home for Ireland at centre in both the November Series and in the Six Nations as he showed his physical edge to tie in nicely with his pace, confidence and intelligence.
13) Jesse Kriel (21):
Perhaps the most exciting youngster of all. The Bulls utility back has been a real treat to watch in the Rugby Championship, most recently scoring against the All Blacks. Kriel has got vision, technique and an eye for a try.
TJ PERENARA (23)
As the top try scorer in Super Rugby, Perenara was a star in a sensational Hurricanes team in 2015. His strength and tackling ability makes him an unorthodox scrumhalf but just like Mike Phillips and Conor Murray before him, he is extremely effective.
Handre Pollard (21):
The South African ten is far beyond his years as he grows and grows with every game he plays. The Springboks have full faith in the youngster as though he has been around for years as he continues to kick goals with nerves of steel and conduct the play outside him. George Ford is unlucky here.
1) Steven kitschoff (23)
The South African loosehead was devastating for the Stormers last season. He is best known for his big tackles and his hard running but is also a well accomplished scrummager. He has earned a pay rise in Bordeaux as result of his performances, where he will play next season.
Marty moore (24)
Moore has become a very solud backup for Mike Ross for both Leinster and Ireland at the scrum. However, it is his great jackling ability at the ruck which has made him stand out from the crowd.
scarra ntubeni (24)
An exciting teammate of Kitschoffs’. Ntubeni has become a fan favourite in Cape Town because of his exciting style which has complimented his security at set-pieces.
4) eBEN etzebeth (23):
The fact that he is already seen as an experienced international at the age of 23 says a lot about Etzebeth’s freak ability. Standing at 6’8, he is a physical monster and loves to get into the dirty work at ruck time. Could go on to be a legend of the game.
5) Will skelton (23):
Another monster in second row here. Skelton was often been used off the bench for both Australia and the Waratahs to assault the opposition when they begin to tire last season but is now beginning to grow into a much more important player as his offloading game and fitness improves.
6) iAIN HENDERSON (23)
Henderson showed just how special he is at the end of the season for Ulster. The versatile 6’6 machine has showed physical, technical and mental qualities in 2015 that would suggest that he will be a future star,
7) Michael hooper (23)
The Waratahs captain keeps on showing sheer class everytime he plays. The most all-rounded backrower in world rugby at the minute continues to pop up with trys, turnovers and plenty of big hits.
8) Billy VUNIPOLA (22)
Vunipola is a vital player for both Saracens and England. He brings a huge presence and can bounce defenders with ease. His offloading has also become a big feature in his game, making him of extra importance.
