Hooper’s historic night

In case you missed it, Michael Hooper will make history tonight.

The superstar openside flanker will captain the Wallabies for the 60th time, eclipsing George Gregan’s previous record of 59 Tests.

We sat down with the Wallabies skipper and one of his former arch-rivals – All Blacks captain Kieran Read – to talk about their time together at Toyota Verblitz earlier this year and much, much more.

Can the Wallabies go back-to-back against the Springboks?

That’s the question every Australian rugby fan is asking after Sunday’s last gasp win against the world champions.

The 28-26 win was the best of Dave Rennie’s two years in charge and the best performance of Quade Cooper’s 71 Test career.

But the South Africans haven’t dropped back-to-back matches since 2018 and they’ll be desperate to turn the tables on Cooper and co ahead of their 100th Test against the All Blacks in Townsville next weekend.
