Identity: Rugby World Cup Day Twenty Two

11th October 2019

Australia coach Michael Cheika is a good example of the multiculturalism that helps shape the modern identity of his country

DAY TWENTY TWO

Australia 27-8 Georgia

Australia got the expected win over Georgia today, but a combination of wind, rain and Georgian resistance made it far from plain sailing. Australia coach Michael Cheika will take this result and move forward, probably to a quarter final against England. During his five years in the job Cheika has worked hard to give his team a sense of identity, and he himself is a good example of the multiculturalism that helps shape the modern identity of his country. Cheika’s father, Joe, arrived in Sydney from the Lebanon in 1950 with nothing and made a contribution that’s extended long past his own lifetime. Immigration has made Sydney and Melbourne vibrant multicultural cities. In the country as a whole over 160 languages are spoken, and one in five people don’t speak English.
