Australia play host to the first Bledisloe Test of 2022 as they host the All Blacks in Melbourne.
Playing on a Thursday evening to avoid an overlap with the NRL play-offs, the Wallabies are playing against history as they look to reclaim the famous trophy from their arch-rivals.
Having last lifted the trophy in 2022, the Wallabies are desperate to get one over an under pressure All Blacks and have perhaps not had a better chance in recent years.
The All-Blacks struggles have been well noted this season having fallen to a number of historic defeats to Ireland and Argentina as well as losing to the Springboks.
As far as the Wallabies form goes, they too have been up and down, losing a home series to England before splitting their series 1 – 1 with both the Springboks and Argentina.
Despite this run of form and history being against them, the Wallabies have come to play and have brought some serious intensity as they face the haka.
Now just over twenty-five minutes in, the action has been full on with the sides all squad at 10 – 10.
The All Blacks have set the challenge! 🔥
