Bledisloe Cup Test

Bledisloe Cup Test Match
ANZ Stadium

The last battle between the Qantas Wallabies and All Blacks in 2012 resulted in an arm wrestle that delivered an edge of your seat 18-all draw. While it wasn't a win, the draw saw the Kiwis sixteen-game winning streak brought to an end.

No doubt the All Blacks will be looking for revenge, while the Qantas Wallabies will once again be out to break the 11-year Bledisloe Cup drought in the ensuing fight for the historic and impressive silverware.

With Australia hosting just one of the three Bledisloe Cup Test matches this year, the Men in Gold will need as much support as they can to ensure the game at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Saturday 17 August is a victory!

  • Date: Saturday 17 August
  • Time: 8:00pm
  • Location: ANZ Stadium, Sydney
