World Class Players

Publié le 2023-09-12

LegendaryPlays is showcasing a selection of 34 players who play or have played in the world's biggest league: the Top 14. The second thing all these players have in common is that they have all been selected for the most legendary and eagerly awaited of competitions, the Rugby World Cup. Toulouse, Toulon, Clermont, Racing, La Rochelle, relive with us the best actions of the last 10 Top 14 seasons, in this tribute collection to the 2023 World Cup.

Supplier of the world's best players, this collection will enable you to discover all the biggest names in our wonderful championship.

Antoine Dupont, the Minister of the Interior

Against Union-Bordeaux-Bègles on the 24th day of the 2022-23 championship, Antoine lived up to his nickname of "Minister of the Interior", racing between the posts after a run worthy of his physical qualities. Number 9 and captain of Les Bleus during this World Cup, Dupont will undoubtedly be the man to watch during this World Cup. Let's hope for similar combinations in the World Cup...


Cheslin Kolbe, the South African firebrand

Against Pau, Kolbe was at the end of an exceptional move from the Toulouse try-line. His phenomenal speed enabled him to complete this sensational move. Cheslin is one of the best wingers in the world and will be the attraction of this World Cup. A world champion with the Springboks in 2019, the former Toulouse man is hoping to repeat his success of 4 years ago. His opponents in defence will have plenty to worry about during this competition.

Josua Tuisova, the Fijian bomb

Against Perpignan four years ago, Tuisova was at the end of a superb team move. His speed and extraordinary power have always been his major assets during his career. 1m80 for 113 kilos, yes, you read that right, can the super-powerful Fijian help his team qualify for the quarter-finals? Faced with Australia and Wales, will Fiji be able to spring a surprise?

‍Damian Penaud, the serial scorer for "Les Bleus"

Against Montpellier in 2019, Damian ran for almost 100 metres to score a typical try. Fast and athletic, Penaud showed his full physical range in this try. With 29 tries to his name already under his belt, Damian Penaud will obviously be the centre of attention. Will the new Bordeaux player help France lift the Webb Ellis Trophy for the first time? We ALL hope so.

Santiago Chocobares, el fenómeno argentino

In the 2022-23 Top 14 final, Chocobares scored the first try of the match after a frantic run to give his team a clear advantage, and they went on to become champions. The Stade Toulousain three-quarter centre will be enjoying his first World Cup in a Pumas shirt, and will be the main focal point of the Argentinian team. During this World Cup, will he be able to repeat this feat and enable his team to follow in the footsteps of their footballing counterparts?
