Jim Tucker

Jim Tucker has covered seven Rugby World Cups since his first Test assignment in 1979 in the days of heavy 100 per cent cotton jerseys, toe-pokers, joyous rucking and interviews on cassette tapes.

He spent a privileged eight-week beat covering every twitch of the Wallabies' 1991 and 1999 World Cup victories for Australian newspapers.

From websites to podcasts and detours in between. Failed T-shirt salesman with 20 still in stock from 1987 World Cup fiasco. No offer above three quid considered.
