During the recent Wallaby of the Decade series plenty of readers dropped hints suggesting we put together a video showing highlights of Stephen Larkham’s career. Well, here it is! After wading through hours and hours of footage of the Wallabies over the 12 seasons from 1996 to 2007, this video shows Larkham in all his glory … those magnificent passes, ghosting runs and glorious kicks … and of course, that Drop Goal!
No matter how many times I’ve watched these clips during the edit, I’m still amazed at Larkham’s passing skills and how he managed to regularly slice defences open when he chose to run.
One of the other delights is watching Horan, Herbert, Burke, Tune, Mortlock, Latham & others take full advantage of the opportunities Larkham created for them.
