The Wallabies will be looking to keep their Bledisloe Cup hopes alive when they travel to New Zealand to take on the All Blacks. This is The Roar’s guide to all the key information you need to know for the game.
The match is scheduled to kick off at 5:35pm (AEST) on Saturday, August 25 at Eden Park, New Zealand.
It’s fair to say that even Wallabies tragics aren’t expecting all too much out of Saturday afternoon’s clash, especially when taking into account the fact the Australians haven’t won in New Zealand since 2001.
The Wallabies started last week’s opening game with the All Blacks in promising fashion, holding strong in defence and taking a 6-5 lead into the break.
However, they just simply collapsed in the second half, conceding 33 points on the way to a 38-13 defeat. The loss came at a cost too, with fullback Israel Folau suffering an ankle injury that has ruled him out of Saturday’s game.
Versatile playmaker Kurtley Beale is one of the names that has been thrown around to replace the 29-year-old in the number one jersey.
The All Blacks will be without Ryan Crotty (concussion) and Rieko Ioane (hamstring).
