We’ve assembled a players lists from over the world that have demonstrated extraordinary ability and potential, what makes them ones to watch this year.
First player who I’m going to talk about is Damian Willemse. 20 year old fella made debut this year against Argentina. he is a talented flyhalf with exceptional speed and beautiful footwork. Springboks coach Rassie Erasmus also suggest he as sees the 20-year-old as a guy who can cover No 10, 12 and 15. lets hope we will se his improvement in 2019 from a young, confident, and extremely gifted player.
Second one is Taniela Tupou (Tongan Thor)
Tongan Thor was named Super Rugby Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year at the award ceremony. After making his Wallabies debut at the end of last year, this season was recognised as his first in full. He has appeared in all but two Wallabies Tests this year and started every Super Rugby match for the Reds.
Captain Michael Hooper about Tupou “He pushes to get better every day at training. That’s the best thing at the moment. He’s hungry to become a better player.”
Next one is Jacob Stockdale
Jacob Stockdale 22 year old Ireland winger had incredible season, he scored 12 tries from 14 matches. Stockdale also made the difference with the only try of the game when Ireland beat New Zealand in November to complete a year in which they could claim to be the best side in the world. in the recent NatWest 6 Nations have seen him crowned as the 2018 Player of the Tournament. It will be very interesting if he will be able to continue with the same pace in 2019.

Aphiwe Dyantyi, became the first South African to win this prestigious award for his international debut season. The rapid Bok winger made his test debut in June with an try against England and didn’t look back, starting in 13 of South Africa ‘s 14 tests in 2018 and scoring six try, including braces against Argentina and in the win over world champions New Zealand in Wellington
