Australia welcome New Zealand to the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane for the final Bledisloe Cup match on Saturday. With the cup already secured, New Zealand are looking to make changes while Australia will be desperate to put in a far better performance.

Australia Form

After a disappointing end to the 2019 Rugby World Cup there was hope that Australia would bounce back to once again become a rugby powerhouse. Dave Rennie’s appointment as head coach was the first step in the right direction.

There was even more optimism after Australia managed to draw the 1st Bledisloe Cup test 16-all in New Zealand. Sceptics knew both teams were rusty, which helped Australia, and the subsequent two matches have shown how far the Wallabies still need to go.

A 27-7 loss at Eden Park followed the draw which left Australia in need of a victory as the All Blacks travelled across the Tasman. Unfortunately home ground advantage didn’t pay off as New Zealand cruised to a 43-5 win at the ANZ Stadium last week.

Australia Team News

Dave Rennie has made a number of changes as expected. The biggest one is that of Reece Hodge starting at fly-half ahead of rookie Noah Lolesio. First choice fly-half James O'Connor remains sidelined with at MCL injury.

Hunter Paisame comes in at inside centre. Tom Banks and Tom Wright both make their way into the side at wing and full-back to replace Dane Haylett-Petty and Filip Daugunu.

Among the forwards, Rob Simmons comes at for the injured Lukhan Salakaia-Loto. There is also a test debut for loose-forward Lachlan Swinton.

Wallabies – 15 Tom Banks, 14 Tom Wright, 13 Jordan Petaia, 12 Hunter Paisami 11 Marika Koroibete, 10 Reece Hodge, 9 Nic White, 8 Harry Wilson, 7 Michael Hooper (c), 6 Lachlan Swinton  5 Matt Philip, 4 Rob Simmons, 3 Allan Alaalatoa, 2 Brandon Paenga-Amosa, 1 James Slipper.

New Zealand Form

After drawing the 1st Bledisloe Cup match 16-all in Wellington, New Zealand went on to win 27-7 in the 2nd Test. It was expected to be a tighter encounter with the Bledisloe Cup on the line last week, and Australia playing host.

That didn’t materialise as the All Blacks dismantled the Wallabies 43-5 at the ANZ Stadium. New Zealand ran into a 26-0 half time lead and then managed the second half without much of a fuss.

New Zealand Team News

New Zealand will be handing out four debuts this weekend. Loose-forward Akira Ioane will start while Asafo Aumua, Cullen Grace and Will Jordan come off the bench.

There are five further changes to the All Black side with Aaron Smith rested and TJ Perenara coming in. Richie Mo'unga is also rested so Beauden Barrett starts at fly-half.

Codie Taylor comes in at hooker while Scott Barrett starts at lock.
