Who is Phil Kearns?
Philip Nicholas Kearns is a former Australian rugby union player. He represented Australia 67 times and was captain of on 10 occasions. He was born in Sydney Australia and educated at Newington College and the University of New South Wales where he graduated with a degree in Economics. He played his provincial rugby for New South Wales. He made his Wallaby debut in 1989. He enjoyed a rivalry on the pitch with New Zealand's Sean Fitzpatrick. During one Bledisloe Cup match he scored a try by barging through Fitzpatrick and then made a two fingered gesture to him and saying something which most TV watchers thought they could lip read. Kearns insisted he said "Two sausages at tonight's barbecue please". The catalyst for this incident was from the previous season when Fitzpatrick sledged Kearns without mercy, telling him to "Go home to your Mummy". He was a member of Australia's Rugby World Cup-winning teams of 1991 and 1999. Although he was injured mid-way through the 1999 tournament he is one of only six players to be twice involved in a World Cup-winning side. Retired since 1999, he now commentates on rugby for the Fox Sports TV channel.
