That is uncertain. You have to compare amount of tries to caps (test match appearances). Tries Matches Daisuke Ohata 69 in 58 (Jpn) David Campese has 64 in 101 (Aus) Rorry Underwood 50 in 90 (Eng) But the best ratio of trys to matches, about 1.2 tries a match, is Bryan Habana's record of 30 tries in 35 caps.
Jonah Lomu and Bryan Habana both have 8 tries in A Rugby World Cup. According to me Jonah Lomu is the best rugby player of all time. I believe that 8 tries was his own.
Manu Vatuvei scored 89 tries in Warriors.
In 2011 across all groups there were 241 tries scored.
