WORLD XV: Daly, Ioane, Naholo, Watson? Who is the world’s best winger?

Continuing on in our World XV series, this time we name our eight best wingers in rugby right now and get you to vote! 

Wingers are often the main attacking threat and top try scorers in the team. Often either big and strong or exceptionally fast, or sometimes even both, a great winger on his day can be incredibly difficult to stop.

The top two from the poll will go into the World XV. Vote on page two.


1. Anthony Watson – England

Still only 23, the London Irish youth product – who now plies his trade with Bath – has already scored 13 tries in 26 Tests for his country, playing a key role in England’s 2016 Grand Slam. He was then selected and starred for the British & Irish Lions during their 1-1 series draw against the All Blacks in New Zealand this summer.

2. Rieko Ioane – New Zealand
The speedster became the eighth youngest All Blacks Test debutant when he came off the bench against Italy in Rome at the age of 19 years and 239 days in November 2016. With pace, strength and fine finishing ability, Ioane was a star for both the Auckland Blues and the All Blacks during this summers British & Irish Lions tour.

3. Nemani Nadolo – Fiji 

The Fijian powerhouse, who currently plays for Montpellier in the Top 14, is a fantastic winger who can also play centre. Has won 19 caps for Fiji with 15 tries to date. At six foot five and nearly 20 stone, he should not be as fast as he is!

4. Jack Nowell – England

Nowell is most at home on the wing but can safely operate at both fullback and centre, where his intelligence and never-say-die-attitude shines through. Played a starring role this year England winning the Six Nations, Exeter Chiefs winning a first Premiership title and the British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand.
