Australian rugby side showered with boos before Champions League clash.
THE Wallabies earned the blessing of Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero this week, but the Italian football club’s fans must have missed the message.
Australia’s rugby union players – in Turin this week for Saturday’s clash with Italy – were invited to attend local outfit Juventus’ Champions League clash with Real Madrid as official guests of the club.
But, when the Wallabies walked out on Juventus Stadium prior to kick-off they were mistaken for Madrid’s players – and subjected to a round of jeers from the home supporters.
fanatix knows Ronaldo and Bale are buff blokes, but it’s surely a bit of a stretch to mistake them for a blindside flanker or lock?
