Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Kangaroo tour is a rugby league tour of Great Britain and France by an Australia representative squad. Traditionally Kangaroo tours took place every four years and involved a three-Test Ashes series against Great Britain and a number of tour matches. In the later twentieth century the tours were shortened, sometimes only involving one Test encounter and tours came to no longer include France.The first Kangaroo tour was in 1908 to England and Wales. The game of rugby league was not yet twelve months old in Australia however a New Zealand side had already toured to Britain (the All Golds in 1907), Australia had encountered New Zealand during the 1908 season and the pioneer Australian leaders of the game were keen to match up against the Northern Union founders of the code.show more
