Best Answer

Some Nationally popular players:

Jonah Lomu, Dan Carter,Joe Rockocoko, Richie McCaw (New Zealand)

England's Johnny Wilkinson, Martin Johnson

Bryan Habana, Percy Montgomery, Victor Matfield, Fourie du Preez, Jacque Fourie, Bakkies Botha, Os du Randt and Bismarck du Plessis (South Africa)

Matt Giteau, George Gregan, John Eales, George Smith, Stephen Larkam, Chris Latham (Australia)

Brian O'Driscoll (Ireland)

Sebastian Chabal, Imanol Harinordiqui, William Servat and Fabian Polouse of France.

Shane Williams - Wales (former IRB Players player)

Best and most popular are two completely different things, however...

Most Popular would probably be between Richie McCaw, Daniel Carter, Jonny Wilkinson, Sebastian Chabal, Ma'a Nonu, Bryan Habana, Matt Giteau and Henry Tuilagi. Shane Williams and Stephen Jones are very popular!

The best player (as voted by the IRB player of the year selection pannel - 2010?) is Richie McCaw. Other nominees include Victor Matfield, Imanol Harinordigue, Daniel Carter and David Pocock.

Gareth Edwards (From Wales and Cardiff) apparently ran the rest of the world ragged. This player was also recognised as the "Player of the century"...

Adam Jones and Gethin Jenkins (Voted Best Props in the World 2010 by their peers) are also notable and popular players in today's game.

Please Note that some of these players are also just recently retired.
