An entertainer on and off the field, David Campese was a free-scoring winger who racked up 315 points in 101 appearances for Australia in a career that lasted from 1982 to 1996. He was integral to the team that brought Australian rugby union out of the wilderness and on to the world stage by claiming a Grand Slam in 1984, and winning the World Cup at Twickenham in 1991. Campese was named the man of that tournament and many would argue he ranks among the greatest of all time.

Australia’s David Campese is the world’s most capped wing with 101, and someone who has scored a memorable try or two in a test career tally of 64.
