Wallabies

wallabies-iconThe Wallabies are one of the heavyweight nations of international rugby and are currently ranked sixth in the IRB world rankings since reaching the semi-finals of the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The Wallabies hold the distinction of having competed in all seven editions of Rugby World Cups, having won the tournament twice, made the final on one separate occasion and made the semi-finals and quarter-finals twice each in the remaining four editions of the tournament.

The Wallabies traditionally compete in the annual Rugby Championship tournament with New Zealand and South Africa, and Argentina, and have won the competition on three occasions.

The Wallabies compete in the Rugby Championship with the All Blacks, Springboks and Argentina, with the four-team tournament introduced in 2012, replacing the existing Tri-Nations format that had been in operation since 1996.

Australia’s rivalry with the All Blacks culminates in the showdown for the Bledisloe Cup, which the Wallabies have held 12 times in the history of competing for the trophy.

The Wallabies, along with the All Blacks and Springboks, are the most successful nation in World Cup history winning the Webb Ellis Trophy on two occasions, while also losing a final at home to England in 2003.

In addition to the All Blacks and Springboks, the Wallabies also have firmly-established rivalries with England and France and compete for the Cook Cup and Tophie des Bicentenaires respectively.

Former captain George Gregan currently holds the record for the highest-capped Wallabies player, having played in the green and gold 139 times, 59 of those as captain. Flanker George Smith remains the most-capped forward, having represented Australia on 110 occasions. David Campese holds the record for the most Wallabies tries scored, while Michael Lynagh remains the Wallabies all-time leading point-scorer, with 911.
