Three players with strong New Zealand connections, including a current Crusader, have been named in World Rugby’s ‘Farewell XV’.

As the Rugby World Cup moves into the knockout phase, World Rugby statisticians have poured through data to determine the best 15 players from the 12 nations who have been eliminated from the tournament.

And some familiar faces have made the cut.

Included in the lineup are Crusaders prop Michael Alaatoa, who earned the No. 3 jersey after making 39 tackles for Samoa, as well as former Highlanders second-five Siale Piatu and fullback Telusa Veainu​, who impressed for Tonga.
