2. Dan Carter (New Zealand)
The double World Cup-winner has established himself as one of the greatest players in history, being near faultless in every department: he can attack, break the line and kick accurately tactically or at goal. He was named the World Player of the Year in 2005, 2012 and 2015 and has won three Super Rugby titles with the Crusaders, and nine Tri-Nations and Rugby Championships with the All Blacks.
Did you know: In 2008, American Cable Channel E! judged Carter to be 11th on its list of the world’s sexiest men.
