Alex Cuthbert has declared that he cannot wait to get into the fold once again and renew his acquaintance with the Australia Rugby Team this Saturday at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
The scene of Australia rugby is governed by the Australian National Rugby Union Team, nicknamed the Wallabies is known to compete with the rugby teams from Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa in the Rugby Championship since 1996. They have won the Tri Nations championship thrice in past 18 years. The years 200, 2001 and 2011 brought them victory.
They have contested against the All Blacks for the Bledisloe Cup since 1932. The wallabies have competed in all the seven Rugby World cups till date and have been victorious in 1991 against England and in 1999 against France.
The Australia rugby team might be hungry for success and fame, but Australian Rugby Union Chief Bill Pulver has warned them that it is not so easy, and that they must be realistic in their goals.
Pulver has really taken over the rugby scene in Australia, and he plans to bring about many changes in the Australia rugby circuit. His first initiative is to come up with a third tier, which will have all the elite players, and will provide a better chance of success for the national team.
Ewen McKenzie, the new coach of the Australia Rugby Union team has a mere five weeks in front of him to turn around the faltering fortunes of The Wallabies before the team faces the toughest task possible: a two test series against the reigning Rugby World Cup champions, The All Blacks of New Zealand.
Italian international player Sergio Parisse has become all too familiar with disappointment in the European competitions and he experienced another dose of it as his French club Stade Francais suffered defeat to Leinster 34-13 at the RDS and the skipper of the French outfit paid handsome tribute to the Irish club on their win.
It was just two years back when the club lost by a single point at the hands of English club Harlequins FC and this defeat is their fourth in a European final.
Steve Hansen, the head coach of the world champions New Zealand Rugby Team has suggested that the established players of the Australia Rugby Team who were scratching around to discover their best form in the preliminary rounds of the Super Rugby series might already have started looking forward to the tour of the British and Irish Lions of the country, which is affecting their performances.
Speaking about the arrival of the Lions in the summer, Hansen raised various points that might make the officials of the Australian team wake up and take notice.
The England team seems to be in really good shape after beating New Zealand by a record 38-21 at Twickenham last December and won two opening matches at the six nations.
Joe Marler, the England prop forward is confident that if the World cup started tomorrow, it would be their cake walk. The rugby world cup named Webb Ellis Cup is due to begin in 2015 in England which is a long way from now on but the team looks confident and is eyeing that from now on.
Given that the Australia rugby team is their opponent, England seems to be at peace like never before. According to the coach of the British Rugby team (Lions), Warren Gatland, Australia can be defeated any time if compared with New Zealand and South Africa.
The Australia Rugby Team beat their South African counterparts 26-19 in a fascinating match at Perth to secure their first victory in the inaugural edition of the Rugby Championship. Going into the break at half time trailing The Springboks 13-6, The Wallabies came back strongly in the second half and took the game to the South Africans. And two tries from Ben Alexander and Scott Higginbotham in the second half ensured The Wallabies ran out worth winners against the South Africans, recording their fifth consecutive victory against the African country.
The injury ravaged Australia Rugby team have called up the services of loose forward Ben Mowen for the upcoming tests against Scotland and Wales that will take place in the first week of June itself after it was revealed that number 8 Ben McCalman will not be able to participate after suffering a shoulder injury which has ruled him out of action for at least a month.
