Fans' Ultimate Rugby World XV of the Year announced

While fans mirrored the players in voting New Zealand’s Kieran Read their “Player of the Year”, they made as many as six changes when it came to their overall XV, most noticeably in the backline, where they pumped for a different halfback, first five-eighth, inside centre and wing.

The fans’ opted for Australian halfback Will Genia ahead of the Players’ pick, All Black Aaron Smith; first five-eighth Dan Carter over countryman Aaron Cruden, South Africa’s Jean de Villiers over Wesley Fofana at inside centre, and Folau ahead of New Zealand’s Ben Smith.

However, the fans were at one with the players when it came to hailing three of the stand-out performers on the world stage in 2013 – England prop Alex Corbisiero, South African lock Eben Etzebeth and Welsh wing George North.
