Build Your Own Player Results
Over the last seven days, the power has been in your hands. We asked you to vote for which player’s body part would help create an ideal player. For example, we put Etzebeth and Yato head to head to decide who’s monster arms our player would have. We did this by matching up two TOP 14 superstars each day.
Let’s take a look who made the cut
The Professor X of TOP 14 Jerome Kaino was voted by TOP 14 fans to have the ‘Rugby brain’. By this we mean he knows Rugby more so than anyone else. The two time World Cup-winning All-black legend is a master of the game and widely recognised as being the world's best and most influential blindside flanker.
It was a tight one but it was Greig Laidlaw’s right foot which made the cut. Scotland’s captain and second-highest points scorer has been a solid figure in the International and domestic rugby scene with insane kicking accuracy and some amazing Rugby World Cup performances, which led to a nomination for World Rugby Player of the Year in 2015.
This one always causes debate. Wilkinson vs Carter. Who came out on top? This time it was Dan Carter. Carter holds the record for the highest number of points scored in test rugby and is considered the greatest fly-half in the history of the game. One of Carter’s memorable moments was when he kicked four penalties, two conversions and a drop goal, and was named the man of the match in the 2015 World Cup final. It doesn’t get any better than that!
You chose the enforcer Eben Eztebeth’s arms. Can we blame you? Of course, we can’t. Believe it or not, Eztebeth’s biceps have a circumference of 19 inches. Let’s make that easier for you, a rugby ball has a circumference of 24 inches. Do we need to say more?
Who’s there to pick the team up? Who’s there to organise the pitch? You chose Parisse. Widely known as one of the greatest number-eights in world rugby, Parisse is certainly someone you’d want on your team. He’s Italy’s most capped player and the third most capped player in the history of rugby.
The most passionate player you could have? You voted for the caveman Sebastian Chabal. Chabal’s work rate and will to win was unprecedented. He was known for his crunching tackles and unstoppable force. He’s a true TOP 14 icon and will be remembered throughout the history of rugby.
Who’s legs did you choose? We’ll give you a clue. He was part of the South African XV that won the 2019 Rugby World Cup. If you haven’t already guessed, it’s Cheslin Kolbe. Known for his electrifying pace and agility, there was no surprise to see his name here.
