Michael Hooper set plenty of records in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, part of a formidable back row set up. The powerful flanker made his presence felt through five Rugby World Cup matches as Australia dominated in the breakdown. Hooper missed Australia's final pool match against Wales through suspension, a rare lowlight for the 24-year-old through the tournament. The Wallabies vice-captain reached his 50th Test in Australia's semi-final against Argentina, becoming the second-youngest to hit the mark and reaching the milestone in the shortest amount of time in history.
