Home to the greatest rugby players of all-time, the RugbyPass Hall of Fame acknowledges the outstanding efforts of the trailblazers from the amateur era through to the global stars who light up the sport to this day.

The amalgamation of rugby’s top players from the amateur and professional eras has been reflected in the Rugby Pass Hall of Fame’s first-ever induction announcement, from which 10 of rugby’s best loosehead props have been unveiled as inductees.

Among the headline names include World Cup-winning No 1s such as All Blacks greats Tony Woodcock and Richard Loe, ex-Springboks duo Os du Randt and Tendai Mtawarira, and former England captain Jason Leonard.

Both Woodcock and Du Randt are two-time winners of rugby’s greatest prize, while Loe, Leonard and Mtawarira each won their respective world titles in 1987, 2003 and 2019.

Woodcock and Loe are two of three New Zealanders named as the inaugural RugbyPass Hall of Fame inductees, with the other being Craig Dowd.

Other inductees include ex-British and Irish Lions representatives Gethin Jenkins, Tom Smith and Graham Price, as well as former Los Pumas stalwart Marcos Ayerza.

Of all those included in the RugbyPass Hall of Fame, only the players with the most votes in each position will make the Fan 1st XV, a team made up of only the best players ever to have played rugby.

The door remains open for other players to become RugbyPass Hall of Famers, so register here to have your say and vote for your favourite inductee in the Fan 1st XV.
