by Staff Writer

Australian Rugby Union will farewell two of the games greats on Friday when 1949 team mates David Brockhoff and Rex Mossop are remembered at two separate services in Sydney.

Brockhoff, a Wallabies Statesman and life member of the Australian Rugby Union, will be farewelled at St Andrew’s College, Sydney University at 3pm.

Dual international and sports commentator, Rex Mossop, will be remembered earlier in the day at St Matthew’s Anglican Church, 1 Darley Road, Manly at 1:30pm.

The pair were members of the famous 1949 Wallabies side that defeated the All Blacks in a series on home soil for the first time in history to claim the Bledisloe Cup and passed away within a day of each other last weekend.
