Stephen Larkham Career Reflection

One of the best passes of a rugby ball to ever play the game, Stephen Larkham will tomorrow play his final match at home for the Wallabies. This will also be his 100th Test Match, a tremendous achievement in the modern era.

He'll be retiring from international rugby after the World Cup and will then be plying his trade in Edinburgh.

Larkham infamously sunk the Springboks in the '99 World Cup semi final when he hit that legendary 40 meter dropkick, the first (and I think probably last!) of his career.

A brilliant tactition with incredible running and passing ability, Larkham will always be remembered for his highly successful partnership with halfback George Gregan, for the Brumbies and the Wallabies.

A true legend of the game.

  • Larkarm has hit another drop goal at international level since his most famous one in '99. He put a second one up against the Springboks in last years Tri-Nations against nonother than the Bok's.

  • Good little video but I would like to see a highlights reel of him playing. I dont think his hands can be matched in the current game, and to have been so consistantly good for so long is amazing.

  • Awesome player. Awesome guy. He will be greatly missed in Australia.

    My favourite moment of his was actually the try he scored for the Brumbies versus the Blues a few years ago where he took this great leap and sailed over the head of Doug Howlett and grabbed the ball right from his grasp to score a try. I would love to see that again.

  • Larkham is a damn good player and one of the best fly-halfs to play for australia.

    P.S. The "f" in reflection is missing in the title

  • Zakk, at least you're up-front with your (obvious) faults - although the one you missed was 'no sense of humour'. That comment was perhaps a little subtle for you but try rereading it with your humour circuits engaged.

  • oh yeh oops!!! lol, i was gonna hurl some abuse there, until i did reread the comment with my "humour circuits engaged" and actually that second comment made me laugh!!! cheers for pointing it out fishboy!

  • Damn shame but now it sems this might be a complete career reflection. If his knee doesn't clear up pdq there'll be no more World Cup for Bernie...

  • If it's about Larkham why are nearly all of the photos of George Grean????

  • Bothe of those blokes are living legends and will be missed in that team. They have left a very big hole to fill.
