Australia warmed up to the Tri Nations with a defeat against Samoa. A strong Samoa team bought a balance of power and pace to the game which the Wallabies were unable to handle. The main highlight of the match was a 70m try from Leicester’s Alesana Tualagi. We have picked out a range of the boots of show from Kurtley Beales Green Adidas RS7 boots to Tualagi’s White Puma King Finale’s.
Tusi Pisi- Suntory Sungoliath and Samoa
The Samoa fly half who plays in Japan was on top form with the boot in Samoa’s Famous Victory. Pisi was one of a few players to defy the teams Mizuno sponsorship, by wearing RS7 Boots with the stripes taped over.
Kurtley Beale- NSW Waratahs and Australia
Beale was rested for the weekend, then came onto the bench, due to James O’Connor’s late injury. Beale came on late in the match, which Samoa’s power proved to much for the Wallabies. Beale’s green RS7 Rugby Boots looked great with The Wallabies Kit.
Mark Gerrard- Melbourne Rebels And Australia
Gerrard had a strong game as Australia struggled. He has a fantastic long kicking game and was safe under the high ball. Will be looking to make the RWC 2011 Squad. Interestingly Gerrard opts to wear the Classic Adidas World Cup boots, with white laces.
Alesana Tuilagi- Leicester Tigers And Samoa
The Giant Leicester Tigers Wing scored and was in fantastic form for Samoa on Saturday. Scored a 80 Metre try and put in some bone crunching hits in defense.
Matt Giteau- Toulon And Australia
Giteau was playing at fly half as Quade Cooper was rested. Giteau will be looking to reclaim the Inside centre position back for the Wallabies. Wore the New Predator RX Rugby predator colourway which looked fantastic on pitch.
