One of the best passes of a rugby ball to ever play the game, Stephen Larkham will tomorrow play his final match at home for the Wallabies. This will also be his 100th Test Match, a tremendous achievement in the modern era.
He'll be retiring from international rugby after the World Cup and will then be plying his trade in Edinburgh.
Larkham infamously sunk the Springboks in the '99 World Cup semi final when he hit that legendary 40 meter dropkick, the first (and I think probably last!) of his career.
A brilliant tactition with incredible running and passing ability, Larkham will always be remembered for his highly successful partnership with halfback George Gregan, for the Brumbies and the Wallabies.
A true legend of the game.
