Ahead of Saturday’s Bledisloe Cup clash let’s take a look at the top 10 tries from one of rugby’s biggest rivalries.
The four-minute video begins with a brilliant counterattack try from Joe Rokocoko and counts down to number one, featuring some awesome efforts from the likes of Radike Samo, Justin Marshall and Christian Cullen.
On Saturday the first Bledisloe Cup game of the year will take place at Eden Park and the Wallabies have selected a young side to play the three-time World Champions. Rumours circulated earlier in the week that Quade Cooper could make a return to Test match rugby, however the 33-year-old was omitted from head coach Dave Rennie’s squad.
“That experience shines out at training. It’s great preparation for us, because he’s really driving the opposition plays, said Rennie.
“I’ve spoken to him about the fact that he’s not just here to help Noah and to give us a training number. He genuinely wants to play Test footy. I have no doubt it’s a possibility.”
