Future Record Breakers?


Fiji have already seen one of their players break a World Cup record, could this record be broken by another Fijian in years to come? Jarryd Hayne broke Bob Fulton's "most world cup tries" record against Wales, some 40 years after it was initially set by the great man himself.

So could we this record broken again in as soon as within the next 10 years? This World Cup has seen some great young talent, but one name sticks out in my head as the player who could claim this title, Suliasi Vunivalu.

Vunivalu has 8 tries in his 3 games so far at his debut World Cup. Vunivalu is a proven try scorer, he is averaging out at a try a game in the NRL, if he can retain his form, he will definitely retain his Fiji jersey and be next in line to this impressive record.

Let's face it he has age on his side, Vunivalu is only 21 (22 at the end of November) this means he has at least two more tournaments in his playing career. Another honourable mention is Cameron Munster, the 23 year old has 4 tries in his 2 games.


Munster has the added advantage of being able to slot in anywhere, from fullback to halfback and anywhere in between. This gives him options, very similar to Greg Inglis, that if his preferred position is taken he can simply slot in somewhere else. He also has time on his side as he is still young.

Either one of these men could claim this record but it's important to remember Hayne is still playing, but he is 29 now, age is not as kind to the backs as it is to the forwards, meaning this could be the current record holders last chance to try and take his record a little further out of reach.
