Fiji Airways Flying Fijians winger Semi Radradra is the only Fijian player selected in a Rugby World Cup XV based on stats.

A minimum of 320 minutes was required for selection except for props who were allowed to play 240 minutes.

1.     Joe Moody (All Blacks)

2.     Shota Horie (Japan)

3.     Kyle Sinckler (England)

4.     Maro Itoje (England)

5.     Kane Le'aupepe (Manu Samoa)
