Widely regarded as the greatest rugby player of his generation.
Both on and off the field - orthodox or unorthodox David Campese has always been memorable entertainment. Fast and elusive and of course with that unique "goose-step", he has over the years provided us with his own brand of magic on the field.
- In an international career spanning 15 years he has played more Test matches for Australia and has scored more tries than any other player in the history of the game.
- David Campese, first capped for Australia against New Zealand in 1982 has now collected 101 caps, both as a wing-threequarter and at fullback which places him second in the list of the world's most capped players behind Serge Blanco, and he also holds the world record of 64 International tries.
- He was on the Australian Grand Slam side which toured Britain in 1984, and came up with the try of the tour with his second against Scotland at Murrayfield.
- He has played in three World Cup tournaments and, of course, was in Australia's winning side in 1991, being named player of the tournament.
- David finished his Test career on the Italy, Scotland, Ireland and Wales Tour with his 101st Test against Wales at Cardiff Arms Park, on December 1, 1996. A crowd of 70,000 farewelled him with a standing ovation.
