Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)

Head and shoulders above his nearest competition as the best tighthead prop in rugby at the moment

Joes Comment:

“He can do everything. He’s not just a scrummager, not just a ball-carrier, he’s got the all-round game.”


 Carl Hayman (New Zealand)

Hayman is widely considered as the best tighthead prop to have ever played the game, having played over 40 times for New Zealand. Hayman is the scrum’s most difficult man to destabilize from a technical standpoint. Hayman was dominating in practically every encounter during Toulon’s Heineken Cup-winning campaigns in 2013 and 2014.
