Moved up to third place in the Men’s world rankings

They climbed to third place in the men’s world rankings thanks to their impressive tournament. After winning the RWC, Australia regained the top spot. Everyone involved in rugby league is devastated by the passing of a beloved and respected family member. Legendary players and coaches. Like the original Immortal John the Rapper, Philippine icon Kiwi Olsen, and Cowboys championship coach Paul Green who passed away in 2022?

Paul left an indelible mark on our code. And to those fortunate enough to be consumed by his relentless passion for the greatest game of the Rugby World Cup. Be it a player, coach, manager or mentor. Filipina was an important figure among the leaders of the Pacifica group of players who changed Sydney football in the 1980s.

The Sydney premiership in the 1980s was very different from today. Compared to the huge Pacific influence in the NRL. This has helped propel the RWC teams from Tonga and Samoa to the global stage. Filipina was a stranger in a foreign land when she arrived in Leichhardt in 1980.

Terribly timid, he was a character who was greatly underestimated, and the mentors, who had little knowledge of the culture of the Pacific Islands, could hardly bring the best out of him.

Filipaina and Balmain showed outstanding football. An indication that he was a formidable attacker and defender, often delivering shocking blows. Less prominent were the East Rural areas in 1985 and North Sydney in 1986-87.

Despite the fact that it was in the RWC season that Philipina showed the most remarkable fulfillment of his calling. The history books show that Australia won the series 2-1. But they don’t tell the story of how the Filipinos dominated Wally Lewis, the Australian tycoon.
