“This list represents a fraction of the incredible talent that rugby has seen over the years, and many other players have also left a significant mark on the sport.”

Do you agree with Chat-GPT’s list?


  1. It just shows AI still has a long way to go. The 4 time World Champions don’t even have a single player on the list!

    1. This recent World Cup team was the worst team to ever win a World Cup by a long way. Lost to Ireland in the groups and then were second best in all of the knockouts. Great winning mentality and team spirit but outclassed on the pitch by every big team they faced except Scotland
