1908-09 Australia Rugby Union Tour of Britain
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1908-09 Australia rugby union tour of the British Isles was a collection of friendly rugby union games undertaken by the Australia national rugby union team against invitational and national teams from England and Wales. This was the first Australian tour of the Northern Hemisphere and the side is sometimes referred to as the "First Wallabies."The 1908 squad to tour England. Both the New Zealand and South African teams had toured Europe in 1905 and 1906 respectively, both achieving unexpected but deserved success against club and international opposition. Despite the success of these two touring teams, Australia suffered very poor press and with only a single win after the teams' first twelve international matches, few people suggested the team would do well.
