1991 Rugby World cup

1991 Wallabies The All Blacks arrived in Britain with their chests out & heads held high. They believed that they would retain the trophy and that the 1991 Rugby World Cup was theirs. If the truth must be known, they never looked like winning.

Meanwhile, the Wallabies arrived quietly and looked like winners throughout the tournament except for a brief 6 minutes at Lansdowne Road. Ireland almost had them beat but it wasn't to be. 

In the final David Campese was their only defence against what seemed to be a dead cert Rugby World Cup final winning try for England when he knocked forward the ball and took with it England's RWC hopes of glory.

The star of the tournament was David Campese with his flip passes over his shoulder and unique double step. There were times when even Australians despaired of him because he could do silly things that could cost matches. But when he was on song he could lay claim to the title of the greatest rugby player the world has known.
