RANKED: The Top 25 Rugby Players of All-Time

25. Sean Fitzpatrick – New Zealand


A hooker with 92 caps, Fitzpatrick was extremely dynamic on the pitch. As an aggressive player in the scrum and on the break, the Kiwi set the bar for all modern hookers.

24. Philippe Sella – France


One of the most remarkable French players to ever play, Sella competed in an astounding 111 international games. This is an extremely hard level to reach, and not only that, but he is one of only five players who have scored a try in every game during a Five Nations season. Sella was inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame in 1999 and then the IRB Hall of Fame in 2008.

23. Andrew Gavin Hastings – Scotland



Andrew Gavin Hastings is the only player from Scotland to make the top 25. He was inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame in 2003, and the International Rugby Hall of Fame in 2013. He captained Scotland on many occasions, even during the 1995 World Cup. He held the record for most international points in Scotland with 667 until that was surpassed in 2008.
