GAGR Podcast Special: England’s Rivers of Arrogance

In this GAGR podcast special, I speak to some Wallaby legends about their memories of two great Australia v England test matches 25 years ago in 1991. Whilst the Rugby World Cup Grand Final win against the Poms at Twickenham is one of the great Wallaby moments, the victory over the old enemy four months earlier at the Sydney Football Stadium set us on the path to the World Championship.

Joining us on this bonus podcast are World Champion Wallabies Nick Farr-Jones, Michael Lynagh, Simon Poidevin and Rob Egerton as they talk us through this two amazing victories and how the rivers of arrogance flowing the Twickenham car park helped them on their way to lifting the William Web Ellis Cup. Teams and point scorers for these matches can be found here:


Highlights for each match can be found below as well:



  • Bobas

    the commentary in the 1991 world cup final vid says that willy-O wasn’t allowed home after touring Australia in a school boys NZ team. We should play that VISA card way more!

  • Kokonutcreme

    Yes I remember that case very well. All Black captain Buck Shelford publicly stated that the NZRU should do everything in its power to assist Willie O in returning to NZ, he rated him that highly.


The original prop in a prop's body, but thankfully I have the rugby mind of a prop as well.
