Five No 10s to watch in Europe

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Sport | Rugby Union -

Johnny Sex­ton

(Le­in­ster): Ev­ery club will be look­ing at ways to stop Sex­ton, and Le­in­ster and Ire­land rely heav­ily on him be­cause he is so in­flu­en­tial.

Lima Sopoaga

(Wasps): Sex­ton and Owen Far­rell set the stan­dard at fly-half in Europe, but Sopoaga looks as if he could be out­stand­ing.

Owen Far­rell

(Sara­cens): At the start of a huge sea­son with the Rugby World Cup on the way, Far­rell ex­cels at this level. Start well and he might be­come Eng­land’s 10.

Finn Rus­sell

(Rac­ing 92): A big move to France and a new en­vi­ron­ment. How he blends in with a host of France in­ter­na­tion­als will be in­ter­est­ing.

Joey Car­bery

(Mun­ster): An ex­cel­lent sign­ing from Le­in­ster, Car­bery can de­velop at Mun­ster now he is no longer on the bench be­hind Sex­ton.
