David Campese

The last of the 2007 Wallaby Hall of Fame inductees to play for his country, David Campese was at the time of his retirement in 1996 the world’s most capped international.

A wing/fullback, Campese would thrill crowds with his ability to dazzle his opponents.

Among his playing honours was being voted Player of the Tournament in the Wallaby’s World Cup-winning campaign in 1991.

David Campese was once described by an Irish International as the Pele of the Rugby World.

The Queenbeyan-born speedster would score 64 tries in his 101 Tests.
