This is statistically the best 31-man Squad in the world!

Rugby stat guru Simon Gleave, based on statistics along, has put together a 31-man squad with World Cup finalists South Africa and England dominating the selection with nine players each.

Scotland’s only pick comes in the form of Stuart Hogg while Bristol Bears Fijian winger Semi Radradra is the only player to be selected who doesn’t play for a ‘Tier One’ nation.

Here’s the squad in full. Do you agree with his selection? Has he missed anybody? Has he selected anyone that doesn’t deserve to be there?


  • Liam Williams (Wales)
  • Stuart Hogg (Scotland)
  • Cheslin Kolbe (South Africa)
  • Anthony Watson (England)
  • Jonny May (England)


  • Jonathan Davies (Wales)
  • Semi Radradra (Fiji)
  • Damien de Allende (South Africa)
