The 90s, the era of the Wallabies
The 1991 Rugby World Cup would prove to be one of the greatest accomplishments in Australian sporting history. A Wallabies side which consisted of extraordinary talent in the likes of Nick Farr-Jones, John Eales, David Campese, Phil Kearns, Jason Little and Tim Horan, Bob Dwyer's men went on to defeat all who stood in their way. The Cup was contested throughout Britain, Ireland and France, consisted of 16 teams and like the 1987 cup South Africa was barred from playing due to their apartheid pro policies.
The Wallabies' road to success was like a movie script, defeating fierce rivals New Zealand in the semi finals before crushing the hopes of a nation, defeating England 12-6 at a roaring Twickenham.
