One of sport's great rivalries revealed at Twickenham

Published: Wednesday 8th of October 2008

The World Rugby Museum at Twickenham Stadium in London is holding an exhibition about the first tour by Australian rugby players to the UK.

Entitled The First Wallabies: Tourists and Olympians, the exhibit tells the story of the 1908 tour of Great Britain by the first Australian rugby union side to travel beyond New Zealand.

A century ago a small group of Australian players toured Britain and America, recording a very impressive 32 wins in 38 games. They competed in the 1908 London Olympics, eventually winning the gold medal.

Housed inside Twickenham Stadium, England's home of rugby union, The First Wallabies will run until April 24th and is a must for any fan of rugby and the sport's history.

LondonPass holders receive free entry to the World Museum of Rugby with their card, a saving of £10 for adults and £7 for children. What's more, admission also includes a tour of the huge, three-tiered stadium, where visitors can get a behind-the-scenes look at this historic stadium.
