Australia had beaten Hull KR 30-10 in their opening match
of the 1982 tour and changed all thirteen players for this second match of
the tour at Central Park. Players like Mal Meninga, Eric Grothe, Brett
Kenny, Peter Sterling, Ray Price and Les Boyd were all left out but yet they
still fielded a strong side. In the first half Wigan had only scored three
penalties via Colin Whitfield whilst Australia crossed for tries by Paul
McCabe and John Muggleton had them 10-6 ahead with Steve Ella converting
both. In the second half, Gene Miles and McCabe combined to get Kerry
Boustead over for a 13-6 lead but a later try for Wigan by Henderson Gill
left the Aussies sweating in defence towards the end of the game.
