This quiz tests your knowledge of that heralded group of 22 players who took on and beat the Wallabies in their own backyard on November 22, 2003.

Some of these are significantly easier than others.


Josh Lewsey: Again proved his worth in the number 15 jersey. Made some dynamic runs and kept the pressure on the Aussie midfield. 7


Jason Robinson: Always looked dangerous with the ball. Had little chance stopping Australia’s try, but did his job at the other end touching down. 8

Will Greenwood: Handled the ball well with some creative touches and put in some big tackles but ultimately failed to shine. 6

Mike Tindall: More direct than creative, but did the job he was asked to do. Produced a vital clearance in the second half before making way for Mike Catt. 7

Ben Cohen: Worked tirelessly off the ball and did little wrong. Was given little opportunity to show his class with the ball. 6
