Kangaroo Tour http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo_Tour is the name given to Australian national rugby league team (the Kangaroos) tours of Great Britain and France. The first Kangaroo Tour was in 1908. Traditionally, Kangaroo Tours took place every four years and involved a three-Test Ashes series against Great Britain and a number of tour matches. The 191112 and 192122 tours were by the Australasian Kangaroos as both teams included New Zealand players. The last full Kangaroo Tour was in 1994, although shortened Kangaroo Tours took place in 2001 and again in 2003.
The 1990 Kangaroo Tour was the seventeenth Kangaroo Tour, where the Australian national rugby league team travelled to Europe and played eighteen matches against British and French rugby league teams, in addition to three Test matches. It followed a tour of 1986 and the next was staged in 1994. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo_Tour
Australia continued its dominance, winning both Test series against Great Britain and France, suffering only one loss (against Great Britain in the first Test), and remaining undefeated against British clubs in a streak stretching back to 1978.
