Wallabies tour – week one

I’ve just completed my first week with the Wallabies as the Australian Rugby Union’s official World Cup photographer.

My job is to visually document Australia’s (hopefully successful) quest to win rugby’s holy grail and I’ve just covered the squad’s Captain’s Run at Chicago’s Soldier Field on the eve of their one-off Test against the USA.

Tomorrow we return to the University of Notre Dame, Indiana, for another week of training before flying to the UK for the tournament proper.

I’ll be posting the visual highlights on a weekly basis, so check back in seven days for another update.

      I just wish he’d saved the Koala thing for the head coach and not wasted it on me.

    Love your work Stu. Must admit, I’ve never been a fan of the code (mostly because I don’t understand it), but I will follow your blog religiously and I wish you and the team a successful campaign.

    Stuart. Don’t think that is a real job. What a great opportunity. Enjoy to the maximum. If I wasn’t in greenethorpe if be very envious.

      I think Iandra could be a pretty good training base mate if they put in a weights room and pool.

    Awesome stuff Stu. Look forward to following this all the way. Do you think England will let you follow them if the Aussies don’t make the quarters?

      I’m not entertaining the thought of Australia not making the quarters.
