Provenance

The first Australian national rugby team to be nicknamed "The Wallabies" won 32 victories out of 38 matches and an Olympic gold medal during its 1908-1909 British tour. The team, principally from New South Wales, wore the light blue and Waratah flower badge of that state, rather than the gold and green uniform more commonly associated with the Wallabies today, but with the name "Australia" embroidered beneath the flower.
