As we approach the semi-finals, here are five players who are likely to be in the running for the 2019 Rugby World Cup Player of the Tournament accolade.
1. BEAUDEN BARETT (New Zealand)
Whether it’s scoring tries or carving out openings to create for others, the skillful and quick 28-year-old is deadly with ball in hand. Probably the best rugby player on the planet.
2. TOM CURRY (England)
He was outstanding against Argentina and Australia, getting the better of the acclaimed David Pocock and Michael Hooper as England dumped the Wallabies out of the World Cup, pickinh up the man of the match award with 17 tackles.
3. SEMI RADRADRA (Fiji)
Radrada, who was unarguably the standout performer in the pool stages, who has only a few months left on his contract at Bordeaux. The rugby league convert, nicknamed Semi-trailer, won two man of the match awards, ran for 400m, made eight clean breaks and beat 29 defenders in his four games. Unstoppable.Embed from Getty Images
