HS Hot List: Locks

The by-position recognition from FloRugby continues on, and we've got your Hot List of 50 lock forwards in Boys HS rugby.

HS Hot List: Props

HS Hot List: Hookers

HS Hot List: Flankers

This is a difficult list to make, because a lot of teams opt to move tall, mobile, skilled players to No. 8. That's not to say these players don't have talent, but what is does mean is that sometimes you will have seen these players suit up with a 6 or 8 on the back of their rugby shirts. That's OK, they still are locks in our book.


We did, however, avoid making a full-on unilateral position change. So if a player is probably a lock (or whatever position), but doesn't really play it much, we assess them at the position they normally play.
