Australia has a great record in the World Cup having won it in 1991 and again in 1999 and only coming out second best to England in 2003. What separates the Wallabies from all the other Rugby nations is that they know how to get the job done when under pressure whether or not they have the best team at their disposal. The Aussies are developing an excellent young team and will make the short journey to New Zealand in good form and hopeful of having a big tournament.

Wallabies Rugby World Cup Odds with the Leading Australian Bookmakers

Australia beat England in a tight game in 1991 and put France in their place in 1999 and lost out to England in a fantastic game in the 2003 final. Some of Australia's Rugby World Cup greats are the likes of Nick Farr-Jones, David Campese and Michael Lynagh and it will be hoped that one or two of the 2011 squad will be able to add their names to that illustrious list. Robbie Deans has been quietly developing an exciting young back line and they are more than capable of cutting any defence to shreds if they are on their best form.

Australia have often lived in the shadows of New Zealand over recent years but slowly they have shown they are able to beat the All Blacks with their attacking and exciting brand of rugby. The Aussies are always dangerous in the big games and having been drawn in Pool C they should have every chance of making serene progress through to the knock-out stages of the tournament.

The Aussies will be relying on the likes of James O'Connor and Quade Cooper to spark the attacking play and if they arrive in New Zealand on form they will lead the Australians towards the latter stages of the Rugby World Cup. The Australians have been drawn in Pool C for the tournament where they will face a stiff test from Ireland in particular, outside of that match they should have no problems in qualifying and are likely to head into the last eight in fine fettle.
