Watch: Hugh Jackman Used To Sing The Australian National Anthem At Rugby Games

Who better to get the national team pumped than Wolverine himself?

We’re not quite sure how we came across this but we thought it would be worth sharing. Did you know Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman is an accomplished singer and used to sing the national anthem at Australia’s rugby games in both Rugby Union and Rugby League?

If you did, fair play, but we can honestly say we didn’t and it’s pretty funny when you look back at it. The Wolverine and X-Men actor can be seen below singing the anthem before Australia’s Bledisloe Cup game with the All Blacks.

Unfortunately having Wolverine singing your national anthem wasn’t enough for the Wallabies as they lost the game 33-18. Jackman can been seen once again singing the anthem at the 1999 NRL final below.

He’s not bad at all either lads. Maybe Cheika might give him a call for next year’s Rugby Championship?
