Rugby league convert Marika Koroibete was the Wallabies’ 2019 Rugby World Cup MVP if our player ratings, as voted by you here on The Roar, are anything to go by.

Despite joining the code in just 2017, our voters ranked him the best player on the ground for Australia in the quarter-final loss to England with an average rating of 7.19, bringing his tournament average to 6.94.

Of his four appearances, Koroibete only registered below a sevem once, in a still-solid performance against Wales in Australia’ second pool game.

Likely joining Koroibete on the podium would be Wallabies skipper Michael Hooper was despite being the national side’s most scrutinised player was consistently good across the length of the tournament.

Tolu Latu, Dane Haylett-Petty, Matt Toomua, David Pocock and teenage debutant Jordan Petaia were the other players to achieve an average rating over 6 across their starting performances in the tournament.

In terms of the poorer performers, Will Genia and Kurtley Beale were the players who Wallabies fans seemed to feel mostly regularly let them down.

Neither missed a match – though Genia started from the bench three times – but Genia had a rating of only 4.34 on average, and Beale even lower at 3.91.

Check out full final player ratings from the tournament below and let us know what you think in the comments.
