Huge Wallaby defence vs France in 2004

Huge Wallaby defence vs France in 2004

Not too long ago we posted a clip of the huge All Black defence rocking the Wallabies from a few years back.

This time, it's the Wallabies doing the hard graft against France in Paris in 2004, showing us exactly how it's done.

In the early stages of the game, they manage to get a huge psychological edge over the opposition by putting in some huge, impenetrable offensive defence. Gang tackling, and pumping the legs to drive players back, this type of defence can be soul destroying, especially so early on in the game.

Note how France actually go backwards, particularly after tigerish Phil Waugh's big tackle.
