Best Rugby Union Club Teamsozzydog12 Could be from England, Wales, France, South Africa wherever but they can't be national teams and they must play union.
The Top Ten
Simply put Leinster are the best overall team in the world. There are twice the amount of teams in the northern hemisphere leagues than in the south so the odds are greater to win there. Therefore to win the amount of titles that leinster have put them ahead of any other team worldwide. Some people say that because the international teams in the southern hemisphere win more titles than those in the northern then that means that the southern hemisphere clubs are better, nonsense. Just look at the record of the British and Irish lions against the clubs of the southern hemisphere and you will see that. Although not the same as individual clubs it shows that teams from the northern hemisphere can win down south. Its something that I for one would love to see. Anyhowleinster have the stats to prove that the are number one, fantasies aside.
Leinster Rugby are hands down the best "club" team in the world. Not only is the first squad strong in all areas, they have the best rugby union academy in the world by a country mile.
They also have one the biggest, if not the biggest fan bases and season ticket holder pool that go to games home and away consistently in the world.
The coaching set up in the main squad and the Leinster squad have vast playing and coaching experience, driven in part by an international coach of Ireland who has the highest standards and expects this to be reflected in the provincial branches.
While it is a province and not strictly a club, it's still the best club around.
Best squad ever. They are deep with subs and have the determination to come back and win. They also have loads of world class quality in players like, Rob Kearney, Brian O'Driscoll, Jonathon Sexton, Jamie Heaslip and Isa Nacewa. They are clearly the most consistent team in Europe and they are the best. They could beat any of the teams listed and have way too much talent to stop winning. Also they have won the heineken cup more than munster could ever dream of so it is clear who the best team is.
Leinster results do all the talking!V 33 Comments
Firstly one cannot compare the northern hemisphere domestic competitions to southern hemisphere rugby. Traditionally South Africa, New Zealand and Australia have been the best Rugby teams in the world. Super rugby is leagues ahead of anything else. The traditional "best super team" are the Crusaders. Next best would be the Bulls. Either of these teams would smash any team out of the northern hemisphere.
One can't look past how good the crusaders are they haven't won super rugby since 2008 but played in semis against the bulls at the high veld and played a flash hot reds in 2011 and lost to the eventual champs the chiefs the past two years, just look at the quality of opposition they play each week, English and French clubs would struggle even if they hosted the crusaders
Sheer professionalism consistency & skill plus the Canterbury flair puts this team streets ahead of any other in the world! A Super comp team that produces outstanding All Blacks must surely be considered the best rugby team
Such a quality team so many All Blacks. No one can compete. Every Super side struggled with this Crusaders outfit. They remind me of the 2009 Blue Bulls side. Top quality.V 25 Comments
Waikato Cheifs win almost every game they play! Surely you should vote for these guys, I mean, they have some of the All Blacks best players! And we all know that the All Blacks dominate.
They the best
We got Sonny Bill
Chiefs unstoppbleV 3 Comments
Best European club at the moment
They are players. They are industrial. They are inventive. They are losers. They are thé best!
So many memories with AS montferrandaise. So many Genius.
Munsters legacy is great but they have slowed in recent years. Never fear though because they look to be getting back into there mojo again. Come on the red army
In terms of shear rugby pride and support I don't think anyone on the list even comes near to matching munster.
Munster are capable of beating any international team, Australia being their most recent victims.
Beat the All Blacks
2 times european champions
Never give up
They've got the best players of any club and the best bank balance that can bring in the big names easily, such as ma'nonu and Brian habana, and at one point the greatest fly half Johnny wilkinson, as well as a dominant forward pack.
3 H cup in a row is enough said.
I love Toulon I think they are the best team in France with Montpellier
Back to back European Champions Cup titles and on the verge of achieving the same in the Premiership, Saracens have become a powerhouse in the club game, and with the age profile of their players, they can only get better!
Saracens F. C are the best club franchise and the best financed in England and have a brand that is moving much quicker than any time in the world
Premiership champions again and our team has won every domestic trophy this year men's and women's plus A teams, plus just beaten in the semi final in Europe.
Again back to back European and wining the Double in euro and England, if the European cup final wasn't fixtured at such a ridiculous time a week before the semi final and final of the English league we would of won the double double as injury's are huge and fatigue great for success. also the six nations should be moved to make it a fare season for all clubs.V 6 Comments
The best records in Europe and probably in the world. Find me another team that won 19 national championship and 4 continental cups at this level. Winner of the 1st European cup and always there since then! The team is usually compared to what Real Madrid is to Football
Won the European Cup for 3 years in a row
Toulouse has the most prestigious record of achievements in European rugby.
This team should be re-named Touwin.
4 h-cup, 19 brennus, 9 international french players... You can't be serious if you vote for another oneV 2 Comments
I like Western Province
Definitely agree with daiyaan Leicester won't know what hit them
Daiyaan knows whats he talking about but I think he's making habana sound too good
Iv watch many of there games by there home ground newlands like any other Capetonian and we all agree they are top 5 not 10,V 3 Comments
Finalists in the pro 12 2 years ago and winners last year, looking good again this season. Maybe not the best team in the world. But getting bigger and stronger
The strongest attacking side in the northern hemisphere, if not one of the best in the world.
Really good team great players and coach

Have dominated club rugby since the mid-late 90's, winning countless premiership titles and league cups, as well as 2 European cups and a number of appearances in the final! Easily the most successful and consistent, and always provide a strong contingent for the England team,
The most consistent club in the UK since the professional era. Have finished top of the table more than any other and have been in more finals than any other team. The silverware is part of the story but the fact that they are ALWAYS there is telling!
Consistently the best club team in the world. The cups and league statistics prove this. They are the Manchester United of club rugby. Occasionally, another team will win the league but it's only seen as a blip!
Dragged English rugby into the professional era.V 16 Comments
When they are on the money, they are on fire.
Pro 12 Champions!
British and Irish lions past and present, always produce world class players, always local talent, great club, fantastic fans, love rugby!
Never one super 15, however they have been finalists numerous times and have one of the best home records the world has seen. Unbeatable at the shark tank, just not this year...
They play very good always doing what they should be doing they focus and wow they are the best team ever
The Sharks is the best rugby club in South Africa and I think they should play against other clubs around the world to show their strenth
The sharks are the best teamV 5 Comments
They are the most consistent team in the world if you look at international and domestic competition. Domestically they won 23 out of 53 currie cups from their inception in 1938. Internationally they are the second most successful team in the super rugby and they are one of the only if not the only team to have beaten all the first tier test nations
They are the most succsesfull South African super rugby team and in my opinion they must be the best club in the southern hemisphere... if not the world..
For years players has been bought (Stolen) by Nothern clubs to the point where the Bulls were almost completely depleted. However, even in the midst of this did they win the Super 15 3 times. I would like to see another club depleted from buyouts can do this. Most of the Southern hemisphere teams may, but would struggle. The Nothern teams under thest condition would fall apart faster than a matchstick house in a tornado.
How can the bulls not be top 10 3super rugby titelsV 2 Comments
Going strong not quite up with the saints in my opinion but still exceptional
Wasps are the best
They are simply the best
Slow process but denfintely in top 10
Strong history and professional approach to playing the game as it should be played
Incredible first I think of
Second year at the top
Simply the bestV 2 Comments
One of the strongest teams in england
England rugby sucks
Brilliant, 2nd best in England this year. They got to the AVIVA Final 2016 and only just fell short.
How are they below bath and Bristol?
Table doesn't lie
One of the most traditional clubs in rugby history. Has a lot of great history
Best team ever
I like bath because Francois Louw is their number 6
Harlequins are clearly the best and they have a really cool kit
They won the aviva cup 2 years ago and still end up in the knock out stages this year and last year
I wouldn't say the Stormers are the best team in the world, but they're really good and are probably amongst the top 10. I love rugby so I watch any game that comes up. From what I see, there are few teams who can match the Stormers...
I love the Stormers
WOw you guys for me the stormers are the best TEAM EVER! How could they be in 20th place. You guys really have to watch them how well they play now. They might be at the bottom half in this year (2014). They won the cell c sharks, toyata cheetas and the western force. You all just think they suck because they at the bottom, but that still does not mean their not good. Stomers are not good, they ARE AWESOME! Guys just watch them then you know how good they are
Stormers are SIMPLY THE BEST, BETTER THEN ALL THE RESTV 2 Comments
Worlds Best Club, 2016 super 18 champions and Barrett can brake anyone's backline
Hands down the most exciting club side in the world to watch.
Have produced the most entertaining players of all time! Cullen, Lomu, Nonu, Umaga, Savea, Barrett... need I go on?
Also the defending champs of the highest level rugby comp in the world...
Great formation do not mess up
Ever since 2003 ospreys have been very successful apart from resent years and they by far the best in wales and all ways beat the welsh teams and is better than any English team apishly.
Greater than most teams, Leinster, Leicester tigers, Australia and many more.
The best in the African Conference in the moment. Moyano, Matera, and Tuculet. What else? - hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
The Greatest Rugby Club in the world. Beaten the All Blacks, Springboks and Wallabies. The club of Barry John, Gareth Edwards, Gerald Davies, Cliff Morgan, Bleddyn Williams and Jack Matthews amongst countless other greats. Inventors of modern three quarter play. In the doldrums at the moment but form is temporary, class permanent.
! we had Jonah lomu
The best in wales and one of the best in uk the lack of 4 region welsh teams is stupid
Smashing team can do anything they want with the ball
The coach sucks but the players are good
Chiek has developed them to the best in the Southern Hemisphere no question about it.
Why is my club team here
Some of the best aussies in history played for this prestigious club, George Gregan and Stephen Larkam, just to name a few, definitely the most prestigious aussie team.
Probably got some of the best History in the game. Up until 1987 when the league structure was introduced, Welsh were one of the best teams in the world with 7 of the Lions winning team to New Zealand in 1971 being picked. Just won promotion back and hopefully will stay up.
The best team in the West Country
Ulster have improved massively over the past few years and have transformed into a strong, powerful side with great players. They have been runners up in a few competitions but will someday do well enough to achieve 1st in any competition that they are in! They have beaten many sides that are listed above several times.
A team with serious potential and ability. They are well capable of beating any of the other teams on this list.
Ulster are a top 10 team they are capable of beaten anyone
