In what is the final match of the Bledisloe Cup series between traditional rivals Australia and New Zealand, the home side is looking at building on their last effort against the All Blacks in which they lost by a meagre six points. The All Blacks have, again, clinically wrapped up the series against the Aussies with another home victory in Dunedin back in September.
The Wallabies have largely elected to take on the same team that came so close to victory over the ditch. Despite former Brisbane Broncos premiership winner Karmichael Hunt being fit, coach Michael Cheika has left the versatile outside back out of the squad. Retiring veteran Stephen Moore has been included on an eight-man bench in what shapes as his last ever International match for Australia.

Australia may not have won the Cup since 2002 and even though they can’t break the drought this year, they do have the opportunity to cement some momentum heading into the Spring Tour. Australia has a pretty good record at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium but punters don’t expect that trend to continue with the red hot world champion ABs favourites to complete a 3-0 Bledisloe Cup whitewash.
