John Farnham, Paul Hogan, Davis Cup, Wallabies, the year Australia ruled the world
Bob Hawke ruled the land with a beer in his right and a beer in his left, Maradona won the football World Cup whilst playing volleyball and the Scots tried their hardest to find the Loch Ness Monster ... the glory days of 1986. This was also the last time that the Wallabies conquered Eden Park and dominated the All Blacks 22-9.
After defeating the All Blacks for the fist time in four years last weekend in Sydney and claiming the Rugby Championship, the Wallabies now have a chance to end the horrid 29 year hoodoo if they can do the unthinkable and win a game at Eden Park. It may sound easier said than done but the last 15 times the men in green and gold have played on Kiwi sacred ground, they have been battered and bruised, coming up short every time. They even lost to the Irish in the 2011 World Cup, leading rugby fans to question if the Wallabies are truly cursed.
It's not the only triumph that was on it's last legs. The Parramatta Eels last won a premiership in '86, but down south the Hawthorn Hawks have kept the good times rolling winning another six flags after their triumph against Carlton.
Unlike last attempts, the Wallabies look better than ever with Michael Cheika's new style of physical and fast paced rugby that's even got the All Blacks shaken up. The hopes of a nation will be rested on Israel Folau, Michael Hooper, David Pocock and Matt Giteau to end this horrendous 29 year nightmare.
