The Top 20 International Try-Scorers of All Time

5. Hirotoki Onozawa (Japan) – 55 tries

4. Shane Williams (Lions/Wales) – 60 tries

His height may have caused some to doubt him in his early days, but he silenced critics with his performances and went on to become one of the best wingers in world rugby and one of Wales’ all-time greats.

Renowned for his pace, side-step and runs, by the time he bowed out of international rugby with 87 caps to his name (plus four Test appearances for the British & Irish Lions) he had a raft of records to his name including being the record try scorer for Wales.

3. David Campese (Australia) – 64 tries 

The Aussie is one of the game’s great players and someone who had the ability to polarise supporters. Brash, arrogant and brilliant, “Campo” bewitched defences and infuriated opponents the world over during a career that took in 101 international caps and 64 tries.

2. Bryan Habana (South Africa) – 67 tries

The speedster cemented his place among the sport’s elite with a series of outstanding displays during South Africa’s 2007 Rugby World Cup triumph.

The 2007 IRB Player of the Year, Habana is regarded as one of the most lethal wingers in the game having taken the Springboks’ all-time try-scoring record during the 2011 World Cup.

1.Daisuke Ohata (Japan) – 69 tries

He is the current world-record holder for international Test tries. He made his debut on the wing for Japan in 1996 and clocked up 69 tries in 58 tests for the Cherry Blossoms.

Upon overtaking David Campese’s record of 64, Ohata was greeted with rapturous applause from Japanese rugby fans but discouraging indifference from other Test-playing nations. Ohata broke Campeses’s record with the second try of his hat-trick against Georgia in May 2006.
