Wallabies vs All Blacks live stream: How to watch Bledisloe 1 online and on TV

 

The Wallabies have yet another chance to break their Bledisloe Cup drought when they host the All Blacks tonight in the first Test. This is The Roar’s guide to watching the game online and on TV.

The match is scheduled to begin at 7:45pm (AEST) tonight, August 18 at ANZ Stadium.

The Wallabies trimmed down their squad to 28 on Sunday, with captain Michael Hooper and senior players Scott Sio and Dane Haylett-Petty set to overcome fitness concerns for tonight’s clash.

And, if history is anything to go by, they will need the trio if they are to stand any chance of taking down the All Blacks.

While the Australians won the last meeting between the two sides, it was only their second victory in their last 19 matches against New Zealand.

The All Blacks travel to Sydney confident of overcoming the Wallabies having won seven of their last ten games at ANZ Stadium.

In preparation for the Bledisloe Cup opener, they played two 40-minute trial games, beating Otago 32-0 and Canterbury 40-5.
