He made his Wallaby debut in 1989. He enjoyed a rivalry on the pitch with New Zealand's Sean Fitzpatrick. During one Bledisloe Cup match he scored a try by barging through Fitzpatrick and then made a two fingered gesture to him and saying something which most TV watchers thought they could lip read. Kearns insisted he said "Two sausages at tonight's barbecue please". The catalyst for this incident was from the previous season when Fitzpatrick sledged Kearns without mercy, telling him to "Go home to your Mummy". He was a member of Australia's Rugby World Cup-winning teams of 1991 and 1999, becoming one of only twenty dual Rugby World Cup winners. Although he was injured mid-way through the 1999 tournament he is one of only six players to be twice involved in a World Cup-winning side.
