Moore to win 100th cap for Australia against Scotland

Stephen Moore returns to face England at Twickenham

The Wallabies have confirmed that Stephen Moore will captain Australia in his 100th Australia match which is against Scotland in the Rugby World Cup quarter final.

Moore could have reached his 100th cap earlier had it not been for a season-ending injury in a 2014 Test.

The ruptured ACL ruined his first game as Wallabies captain, his first long-term injury, setting back the milestone.

The Wallabies captain made his debut against Samoa in 2005 and has gone on to become the most-capped hooker in Australian international rugby.

He is the first hooker to lead Australia into a World Cup and has continued his strong form heading into the tournament.

Sunday’s match will see him join the ranks of eight 100-cap Wallabies, along with returned veteran Matt Giteau.

The pair join David Campese, George Smith, Stephen Larkham, Nathan Sharpe, George Gregan and Adam Ashley-Cooper as Australia’s centurions.
