With a points per game ratio of 30.92, Ardie Savea is one of the best performing flankers available.

For more information on what the numbers on the player cards mean, take a look at this.

A full list of appearances last season and he might very well have climbed to the top of the rankings, but his ten fixtures delivered in spades.

His average rating of 7.72 was high for his position, as was his metres per game (35.78) and assists (5).

Add to that a tackles per game ratio of 12.54 and a tackle success of 92% and you get the picture of a player who delivers in both attack and defence.

The only thing that should make you reticent about getting him on board, is how much are the All Blacks going to be rested in this World Cup year?
