Australians have been playing rugby since the 1860s, and the names of the great players of the past are still well known today. Players of more recent years have also electrified the nation - David Campese, Tim Horan, Mark Ella, Simon Poidevin. And in 1999 John Eales held aloft the Rugby World Cup. The Wallabies had beaten France at Cardiff to win the trophy and become the champions of the world. The Golden Wallabies tells the story of this victorious campaign, with match-by-match accounts, and describes many other triumphs over the years. The Golden Wallabies is an exhilarating celebration of Australian rugby. Packed with facinating detail, it is a must for every follower of Rugby Union.
