It is quite the task ranking the top 5 because every position has completely different roles but I'll give it a go.

1. Dan Carter
2. Richie McCaw
3. George Smith
4. Bryan Habana
5. Tony Woodcock

That sounds about right - though agree that it's nigh on impossible to pick singular best players without specifications (i.e. certain positions etc).

DC and Richie could easily be around the other way; def agree with Smith being right there. 4 and 5 would have a lot of competition from the dozen odd guys hustling around after them.

There is no way Stirling Mortlock would feature in the top 4 maybe go back to '07 then he would probably feature, he is over the hill now and this year he has been average as. And how can you not squeeze Tony Woodcock in that 10, Props never get any respect but they have arguably the toughest, hardest job on the field.

Yeah but props still just don't stand out for me. they're too boring to watch. If I was going to pick one it would be Carl hayman. mortlock isnt over the hill! He would make centre in the All Blacks I reacon! Brian Odrisol is over the hill.

NO way. BOD just doesnt get a chance to shine with the weak Irish side they have now, Mortlock is well over the hill, If I were Deans I would cut him next season and give captaincy to George Smith, get him ready for RWC 2011, because there is no way Mortlock would be there.

Yea Hayman last year would of easily been in the top 5 players in the world probably 3rd, he was the most dominant prop the world of rugby has seen in a long time, however I aint seen him play since last yrs WC.

The big problem with props, especially as far as aussies are concerned - is that that the Wallabies have played decent rugby without a single prop in their team! Smile

Dude, are you joking?

Ma'a's a good player (I'm certainly a fan) but I'd never rate him amongst the world's best...and Sivivatu? His ABs place is under threat, let alone the best!

Id agree with you m8, Nonu is 1 of my fav players but not top5 in the world material. But Sivivatu is a joke, there is no way he is top5, Tuqiri is wayyy better than him and he isnt in his best form. My top5 would be

1. Dan Carter World class player, everyone knows why he's the world best.
2. Richie McCaw Good leader, great at the breakdown. Is really a step above most forwards in the world.
3. Shalk Burger Similar to McCaw but just lacks that X-Factor McCaw has.
4. Bryan Habana Solid finisher and can create try's out of nothing.
5. Matt Giteau Probably just makes my top5 on being the most with POTENTIAL.

Unlucky to not make it:
George Smith, Brian O Driscoll, John Smit, Victor Matfield & Rocky Elsom.

maybe i was smoking something there but he's electric when at his best and i think he is right up there with the best, i'm a huge fan so maybe i'm a little biased but i think he is a star. As for nonu, i think he certainly is up there and is one of the best centre's in the world
