Kangaroos Team (Rugby League) - 1982

The 1982 Kangaroos team became the first international rugby league side in history to complete a tour of Britain and France without losing a game. It was not merely the number of victories which was impressive, but the manner in which they achieved them. They won three Tests in England by a 99-18 aggregate, a Test against Wales 37-7 and two against France on a 38-13 aggregate and won all other 17 tour matches convincingly.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
