Rugby World Cup 2019 top points scorers

By Chris Dinsdale

September 20, 2019 - November 2, 2019 - The Rugby World Cup takes place in Japan. England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson holds the all-time points record at the World Cup, and is the only player to score in two finals, in 2003 and 2007.

The 2019 tournament marks the first time that the showpiece has been held in Asia, outside rugby's traditional heartlands. Twenty teams will compete to be crowned World Champions.

A total of 48 matches will be played at 12 venues over six weeks, with the final taking place at Nissan Stadium in Yokohama on November 2.

The leading World Cup points scorer of players going to Japan will be Argentina’s Nicolas Sanchez, who scored 97 points in 2015 to inspire his team to a fourth place finish.
