In a somewhat surprising revelation, Ireland flyhalf Johnny Sexton currently leads the voting for World Rugby's Player of the Decade.
The sport's global governing body is currently running a fan vote to decide the best player of the last decade, with the eight nominees made up of all the players who won the World Rugby Player of the Year award between 2010 and 2019.
On Wednesday, World Rugby updated the latest standings, confirming that Sexton, who was crowned Player of the Year in 2018, currently leads the voting with 22%, with All Blacks legends Richie McCaw (20%) and Dan Carter (19%) hot on his heels.
South Africa's Pieter-Steph du Toit, the 2019 Player of the Year, is also in the running, alongside All Blacks Beauden Barrett, Kieran Read and Brodie Retallick, and Frenchman Thierry Dusautoir.
Voting closes on Sunday, 25 October at 19:00 SA time.
