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.
He is a former New Zealand rugby player. He scored 6 tries in a game against Japan in the 1995 Rugby World Cup which is the world record for the most tries by an individual in an international rugby match.
Martin Offiah & Shaun Edwards scored 10 tries in a match for Wigan in 1992
Jonah Lomu - 15 tries over the '95 and '99 tournaments
Shane Williams for Wales 49 tries
Ashley Billington, playing for Hong Kong with 10 tries in one match against Singapore in 1994. Marc Ellis, of the New Zealand All Blacks with six tries in one match against Japan in the 1995 RWC.
Doug Hewlett - rated 5th in the world with 62 caps and 49 tries
