To celebrate 10 years of professional rugby union, Australian Rugby celebrated the occasion with the announcement in 2005 of the Wallaby Team of the Decade. A Judging panel of 30 journalists and commentators voted on a starting XV and a bench, with 6 players (in italics below) being unanimous selections, the rest being selected in their respective positions.
The only five Australian players to have won 2 Rugby World Cups (1991 & 1999) have all been selected: Phil Kearns, John Eales, Tim Horan, Jason Little and Dan Crowley.
As of August 2015, George Smith is the only player still active.
