Classic Wallabies Visit Niseko, Japan

In the lead up to the Wallabies first match of the 2019 Rugby World Cup against Fiji in Sapporo, Classic Wallabies Matt Cockbain, Morgan Turinui and Lote Tuqiri spent a couple of days in Niseko to teach local students all about rugby union. Watch this video to get an insight into their school visit, including: - showing students how to hop like a kangaroo - teaching some fundamental skills and aspects of rugby union such as line outs and teamwork - enjoying lunch in the classrooms with students - students singing happy birthday to Lote Tuqiri! Whilst in Niseko the Classics enjoyed an evening in Kumo Restaurant at Skye Niseko, where they met a heap of rugby fans visiting the region. We were surprised and delighted to see so many Wallabies fans visiting the town in the traditional off-season. The visit to Niseko was part of the Classic Wallabies community engagement program, aimed at increasing awareness and understanding in Japan about rugby union, and encouraging support of the Wallabies. This activity received grant funding from the Australia-Japan Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Thank you for your support. Thanks also to Rugby Australia, Australian Rugby Foundation and all our other partners for your generous ongoing support.
