Staggering stats show how difficult it is to beat the All Blacks at Eden Park

BY davidharper  ·  Friday Aug 24, 2018

When it comes to home-field advantage, Eden Park is perhaps the most impregnable fortress in the sporting world. This video puts New Zealand’s dominance in their sanctuary into perspective, showing just how difficult a challenge it will be for the Wallabies on Saturday.

The impressive stats are paraded for the rugby world to see every time the All Blacks square off in Auckland. This week is no different and the staggering numbers continue to grow. 

At Eden Park, the All Blacks have played 84, won 71, lost 10, drawn 3 – for an 84.52% win rate.

They’ve won 41-games in a row, dating all the way back to 1994 when France scored the “try from the end of the world” to win 23-20.

Even more sobering is the fact that Australia have not won at Eden Park since 1986, before most of the current Wallabies were even born, with New Zealand winning 23 and losing four, for an 85.19% rate.

All streaks come to an end and the Wallabies will be highly-motivated after last week’s loss, so cannot be overlooked. The All Blacks will once again be looking to tuck the Bledisloe Cup away for yet another year.

Both teams are nursing some big-name injuries, perhaps none more important that Australian full-back Israel Folau. But even if they had him, stats don’t lie and the Wallabies face another monumental, uphill battle on Saturday night.
