David Campese - Australia Rugby World Cup Winner 1991
The World loves an outspoken performer and this is exactly what you got with Campese as he will be remembered by many fans for his outspoken words against England and was employed by an England firm to admit he was wrong and this made huge news.
His Rugby peaked in 1991 for the Rugby World Cup finals where he began the tournament in fine style with two tries against Argentina and then added another in the final pool game against Wales. He added two more against Ireland at Lansdowne Road. This was not to be the highlight as in the semi-final against New Zealand he scored the Wallabies first try and laid on Tim Horan to score the winner using what was to become his famous flick pass. Australia's opponents in the rugby world cup final betting odds were England and Australia had to withstand huge pressure for much of the game, and it was only Campese's interception that prevented a probable try for Rory Underwood after which the Wallabies went on to win 12-6.
Campese was born in 1962 and played his first game for the Wallabies in 1982 against the All Blacks at the age of 19 and played in all 101 times for Australia.
