THE LEGENDARY John Kirwan will coach the Barbarians for a second time this autumn, when the famous invitational side takes on the Wallabies on 1 November at Twickenham, before heading to Welford Road to play Leicester on 4 November. While the likes of Kurtley Beale, Israel Folau, Will Genia and Adam Ashley-Cooper will be flying the Wallaby flag, Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins, who is now plying his trade in Japan for the Coca Cola West Red Sparks, will be available for Kirwan to select against his fellow Aussies.
When we asked you for your favourite memories of the former All Black, some of you talked about the work he has done boosting mental health awareness, but the moment that came up time and time again was this try against Italy at the 1987 Rugby World Cup. And because it’s such a cracker, we thought we’d put it online and share it with everyone!
