David Campese

David Campese was capped by Australia 101 times, playing on the wing and at fullback for the wallabies.
Campese’s career highlights include being part of Australia’s Rugby World Cup winning side in 1991, a campaign in which he played a major part thanks to being the joint-leading try scorer. For his efforts, Campese was rewarded with the ‘player of the tournament’ accolade.
During the 1996 Australia Rugby Union tour of Europe, Campese became the first Australian rugby union player, and second international player to reach the milestone of playing 100 Tests. Thus becoming the first Australian Rugby Centurion. He retired from international Test-match rugby at the end of the tour, having scored a then world-record 64 Test tries.
