Marx’s dynamism as a hooker is a key asset for the Springboks. His exceptional lineout accuracy, powerful carries, and aggressive breakdown work establish his dominance in both set pieces and open play.

France’s formidable number 8, Alldritt’s powerful ball-carrying and breakdown skills define his impact. His ability to create momentum with every touch, coupled with his tenacious defensive efforts, solidify his position as a driving force in France’s forward pack.

#2. Ardie Savea (New Zealand)

An explosive back-rower, Savea’s versatility and aggression set him apart. His breakdown dominance, ball-carrying strength, and defensive tenacity make him a vital asset for the All Blacks. A player whose intensity shapes both set pieces and open play.

Wales Online wrote: “The France captain is widely regarded as the best player on the planet. Former world player of the year Dupont is the complete scrum-half and has the ability to win a game of rugby almost single-handedly. 

“If he brings his A game France have a great chance of lifting the Williams Webb-Ellis Cup on home soil this autumn.”
