Who do you think will be the RWCs superstars this Autumn? Either established players underrated by others, junior players breaking into the international squads or maybe a rank outsider?

Starting With the home nations, looking at not just emerging players but maybe some who as yet haven’t got a nudge international reputation.

I think this World Cup will see Ford, Slade and Underhill get big praise from the England team, Leavy Ringrose and Ryan from Ireland, McInally, Huw Jones and Hogg for Scotland and Tipuric and AWJ for Wales.

Underhill if he stays fit.
Curry could enhance his rep.

Josh Adams I suspect could make a big impact.

Finn Russels time is now or never. Russell and Hogg fit at the same time makes Scotland a completely different animal.

I think he is well recognised as a class player here in the NH, if he can control his temper he is going to be a hell of a player and will impress the rest of the world too. He was still very young on the last Lions tour and has taken a while to kick on from that on the international stage.

A team probably has to make it to the semi-finals for a player to make an impact on the tournament. A number of Japanese players raised their profiles in 2015 but they now seem more like cameos in the context of the whole event.

Have to think Scotland going deep will have star performances from Russell and Watson. South Africa will be Cheslin Kolbe and De Klerk. They are all known entities to some extent but driving their teams through to the last rounds of a World Cup would be a gear change.

Phil Vickery is in the form of his life at the moment. Gotta be his year to shine at the WC, surely?

He needs to stop the petulant little acts...if he does then yes he could be a star of the tournament. Otherwise he could be the villain.

Is that South African guy Kolbe ?? who plays in France...the winger. He's insane.

And the other South African winger...the one who was a superstar in 7's.

In fact i fancy South Africa for the title.

SA have two good scrum-halves playing in England, plus numerous lock forwards everywhere. I think their team is in good shape.

Agree on Cheslin Kolbe. With how good the guys step is and how short he is it must be nearly impossible for a lot of players to bring him down without risking a seat belt tackle. He is electric.

Kolisi, Marx and Kitshoff are incredible players for South Africa. I could also see RG Snyman establishing himself as a world class lock at the RWC.

I could see Joey Carberry having a big impact for Ireland in key games.

Liam Williams aerial skills should see him have a huge impact in cagey RWC games with kicking to the fore.

The Fiji back row of Villiame Mata, Dominiko Waqaniburotu and Peceli Yato could light up the group stages in the interesting group D with Wales, Australia and Georgia also there.

I wouldn't say he will be a superstar but I could see Sam Skinner having a very good tournament with Scotland. He's an excellent second row and blindside.

If New Zealand win the Cup, then plaudits might end up going to Sam Cane. He has come back from a neck injury which looked like it might end his career. If anything, he's played better than before. He's always been well-regarded in NZ but less so overseas so a strong showing in the Cup would put him firmly on the map.

He was unreal vs the Rebels. Nic Bishops analysis elsewhere has Cane right back in the mix.

Every Rugby World Cup needs its superstar, Jonah in 95, Campese in 91, Kirwan in 87, Cullen in 99, Caucaunibuca in 2003, Habbana in 07, Harinordoquy in 11, Savea in 15...!

I wonder who will be this years ?

Ryan Conbeer is having a really good U20's world cup, and I keep hearing good things about him, I think he could be one for the future.

For the now though, I hope Owen Lane gets his chance at this world cup, I really think he can make a mark for himself.

He certainly shows some talent it’s a shame that injuries diminished his season. Great that he made the larger squad but he plays in a very tough, competitive position for wales...!

Could well be a huge success though.

From an England perspective:

I think Tom Curry is a good shout aswell. Might not be THE star, but could very well establush himself as one of the top 7's on the international stage.

i think Itoje could be a huge one aswell. He is just so influential on games...

France have some very interesting indivudal talent coming through.

So do Scotland...the Northampton lad has been fantastic. Hutchison isnt it?

Yeh, Rory Hutchinson. Heck of a player and I agree in that he could have a huge world cup.

Totally agree on Kolbe too. I think South Africa as a whole could have a really good world cup. They've developed an excellent, physical squad after a few years of being a little lost in the wilderness. They are capable of bullying anyone upfront and if their backline are given space and time they'll be a real handful.

I'm anticipating Argentina having a successful tournament too. I'm more nervous about them being in England's group than France. Matera could establish himself on the global stage as a world class flanker. I just wish Tigers has managed to keep hold of him.

Full backs and wingers. We need context. How many games did they play? Against who? Etc.

This is ruck.co.uk clickbait.

Yes that’s true, although we are well aware oh Stockdale in the PRO14 and Six Nations he hasn’t really announced himself like he will likely do at the RWC..!
