1999 Australian Wallabies Rugby Union World Cup wiinning Team
A Number On my Back John Williamson
World in Union Shirley Bassey and Bryn Terfel
The 1999 RWC:
Come the World Cup all our stars were back on deck, albeit Larkham missed the first game v Romania just to be safe. The team clicked early and we won through to the finals with wins over Romania (57-9, featuring Timmy Horan's try within 90 seconds of kick off), Ireland (23-3 featuring Toutai Kefu smashing Irish flanker Trevor Brennan with a barrage of punches that would see Kef suspended for two games) and the USA (55-19 featuring the only try scored against Australia through the entire World Cup).
A quarter final match up with Wales in Cardiff didn't end up being the battle anticipated as we won 24-9. The Boks were next in the semi-final which is famous enough already, thanks to a wonky 45m drop kick from Bernie Larkham. Which took us to the final in Cardiff against France who were somewhat underwhelming following their upset win over New Zealand a week earlier. In the end we won 35-12 with the team being:
15 Matt Burke, 14 Ben Tune, 13 Daniel Herbert, 12 Tim Horan, 11 Joe Roff, 10 Steve Larkham, 9 George Gregan, 8 Toutai Kefu, 7 David Wilson, 6 Matthew Cockbain,5 John Eales [c],4 David Giffin,3 Andrew Blades, 2 Michael Foley, 1 Richard Harry. Replacements: Jason Little,Nathan Grey,Chris Whittaker,Mark Connors,Owen Finegan, Dan Crowley, Jeremy Paul.
