Bledisloe Cup

• The Bledisloe Cup, kicks off this Saturday, August 7th from 4.30pm AEST

The Bledisloe Cup, kicks off this Saturday, August 7th from 4.30pm AEST when the Wallabies meet the All Blacks at Eden Park in Auckland, screening live on Channel Nine, 9Gem, 9Now, and with ad-free, on-demand coverage on Stan Sport. 

After a win in the three-test series against France, the Wallabies are on a mission to shake off their 35-year Eden Park hoodoo and bring home the Bledisloe Cup that has eluded them for 19 years. 

Coverage will be presented by the Wide World of Sports and Stan Sport commentary lineup, hosted by Roz Kelly and Nick McCardle, and featuring All Blacks superstars Sonny Bill Williams and Andrew Mehrtens. Wallaby greats Tim Horan, Drew Mitchell, Morgan Turinui and Justin Harrison will break down all the action, assisted by Allana Ferguson

Wallabies coach Dave Rennie has named a 42-man squad for the Bledisloe series, a team with an average age of 25 – captained on Saturday by Michael Hooper in his 109th test match – determined not to be daunted by Eden Park history.

The All Blacks have put the Wallabies on notice, with head coach Ian Foster saying they have learnt a lesson from their 16-all draw in last year’s Game One in Wellington. 

The Wallabies have their work cut out to break their long Auckland drought, with back-to-back tests at Eden Park. Game Two of the Bledisloe Cup series will be played on Saturday, August 14, before the final game in Perth on Saturday, August 28, that doubles as a Rugby Championship fixture. 

The Bledisloe Cup marks the start of the Wallabies’ campaign for the 2021 Rugby Championship, with all Australian fixtures to be screened live on the Nine Network and Stan Sport.
