Campo - A David Campese Tribute

Campo - A David Campese Tribute

One of rugby's greatest characters, both on and off the pitch. With 64 tries in 101 Tests for Australia, David 'Campo' Campese is a true legend of the game.

He played to entertain and to enjoy himself. Since his two try debut against the All Blacks in 1982, Campese has represented his country at fullback and on the wing, winning everything from Bledisloe Cups to Grand Slam tours to the 1991 Rugby World Cup.

His willingness to take chances and make mistakes resulted in more than a handful of memorable moments, particularly for the Barbarians in 1984 and in the 1991 World Cup Semi Final against New Zealand.

Having eventually moved on from playing rugby, Campo took to coaching (The Sharks in Durban, South Africa) as well as running his own sports store in a Sydney suburb.

It isn't often the rugby world witnesses a player as expressive as Campese and to acknowledge this, Rugbydump salutes him with this tribute. Thanks for the memories.
