The fundamental element of being classified as an underrated rugby player is not receiving enough credit.
While the likes of Marcus Smith, Stuart Hogg and Antoine Dupont will always grab the headlines, here are five of the most underrated players in world rugby today.
#1. Joe Marchant (England)
- Age: 25
- Position: Centre
- Club: Harlequins
Providing a perfect balance of defence and attack, the centre is a very classy player who is yet to establish himself in the England XV despite his incredible ability. A superstar in the making.
