ARU Classic Wallabies Statesmen

Six of Rugby's most distinguished legends have been named as the 2014 Classic Wallabies Statesmen.

In their position as Statesmen, each will play a role in the current Test series before again being recognised when they come together in the lead-up to Australia’s third Bledisloe Cup Test in October, where they will be presented to the Rugby public.

The group boasts a number of former Wallaby captains and World Cup champions, while each of the 2014 Statesmen continued their involvement in Rugby beyond their playing days in the administration and coaching ranks.
