Kangaroos winger

Holmes happy learning from Slater

Holmes scored six tries for Australia on Friday night, equalling New Zealander Hugh McGahan's 1983 Test record, and breaking his own record for the most tries in a single World Cup match. 

The Sharks flyer had set that record just a week before, scoring five four-pointers against Samoa before backing it up against the Bati with six in the Kangaroos' thumping 54-6 semi-final victory. 

These outstanding back-to-back performances have sparked debate about whether Holmes is a better winger or fullback, with the man himself preferring to wear the No.1 jersey.
