For a good while Conor Murray was widely regarded as the best scrum half in the world.
He is the Munster captain.
His partnership with Johnny Sexton in The Irish team was legendary. However both players are getting old with Murray age 30 and Sexton age 34.
In 2018 Murray was instrumental in Ireland’s Grand Slam win. However this year he has not played well.
Aaron Smith is possibly the greatest scrum half of all time. The New Zealand number 9 is still smashing it at almost 31.
He scored 2 tries against Ireland and while I am unhappy about that I still think he played amazingly.
He plays for the Highlanders.
His halfback partner for the All blacks is usually Beauden Barret or Richie Mo’unga. Barret won the 2016-17 player of the year award.
He helped New Zealand win the 2015 World Cup.
Francois Faf De Klerk
Faf De Klerk nicknamed the “The Giant Slayer” and “the miny Hercules” is in my opinion the best scrum half in the world at the moment.
The Sale Sharks and South Africa player was incredible at the World Cup in 2019 helping South Africa to win the whole thing beating England 32-12.
He is the youngest of the three at just 28 years old. He still has a very bright future ahead of him. His half back partner for South Africa is Handre Pollard.
In my opinion he is brilliant.
So to conclude my article I will give my opinion on who is the best. My personal choice is Faf De Klerk. Who is yours?
