Travel with the legends of Australian Rugby, Mark Loane, Paul McLean, Mark Glen & Gary Ella, Tony Shaw and Simon Poidevin as the confront some of the great players the northern hemisphere can offer. Trevor Ringland, Terry Kennedy, Tony Ward, Willie Duggan and Fergus Slattery of Ireland meet the Wallabies head on.
