Get to know the players we think will shape the tournament’s knockout stages, live on ITV

As the competition gets serious, check out the players we think will help decide where the trophy ends up…

The Rugby World Cup 2019, continues Saturday 19 October, ITV/HD (CH 103/113)

So that’s that then. The group stages are done. The real business of the 2019 Rugby World Cup starts now.


There are just seven games left to decide who will get the honour of calling themselves the world’s best for the next four years, which is kind of a scary thought. How has it gone by so quickly?! But don’t worry, they should be seven games of the absolute best quality. If the tournament so far is anything to go by, we should be in for a treat.


The final destination of the trophy may well hinge on a moment or two of individual brilliance – a run, kick or tackle we will be talking about for years to come. Don’t forget to check out our Rugby World Cup fixtures finder, so you never miss a kick, try or scrum, plus we’ve broken down which stars we think will step up to provide one of those key moments.
