Statistics

  • John Eales scored 173 points for Australia which come from 2 tries, 99 penalties & 69 conversions, a total which places him 8th on the all-time scoring list for Australia. He is the highest scoring forward in test rugby history and only one of two forwards to have ever surpassed 100 points in test rugby. This is because of his being a goal kicker, which is unusual for a forward, his two tries are unremarkable even for a forward. His memorable kicks include a sideline penalty goal in the final minutes of a 1997 test to win the Bledisloe Cup against New Zealand.
  • Eales is one of only 21 players to have represented the Queensland Reds in 100 or more state games. He represented his state in 112 games.
  • Eales scored a total of 402 points in the Super 12 competition with 6 tries, 66 conversions and 80 penalties for the Queensland Reds. No forward has scored more points than him in the competition's history.

A sure sign of John's competitive spirit is shown by the fact that even though this was only a friendly against a country over which he had enjoyed many triumphs, he described it as one of the worst moments of his career.
John was shattered by the defeat, but did not panic and carefully assessed what needed to be done to secure victory.
John delivered an emotional farewell address, but the last word went to Peter Crittle, President of the ARU who said simply: "Thank you, John Eales." After the match, John retired from rugby having amassed 86 caps, with a record 52 as captain.
