Australia fly across the Tasman Sea, as the Rugby Championship champions, to play New Zealand.

It is a match that will decide the residence of the Bledisloe Cup, at least for a year or so.

Last Saturday Australia pulled a surprise on the world by winning two things – the Rugby Championship and a chance to win the Bledisloe Cup for the first time since 2002.

True Eden Park is in Auckland, whereas last Saturday they played in Sydney. However, there was enough evidence in Sydney to suggest that the Wallabies could win wherever the game was played – their concentration, energy and skill were such that they deserved their victory.

New Zealand hold the bulky Bledisloe Cup and Australia would need to win or draw on Saturday to wrestle it from them, for the All Blacks are the holders. If New Zealand win the series will be drawn, and the All Blacks retain the cup.

The Wallabies do not have a great record at Eden Park – played 25, won four and lost 21.

The last time they won there was in 1986, when New Zealand was trying to recover from the upset of the rebel Cavaliers’ tour to South Africa. Since then Australia have lost 15 in a row, including 21-50 in 2014.

But history is there to be made.

In the match last Saturday, New Zealand had the better of the line-outs but the Wallabies – believe it or not – had the better of the scrums and were the ones who won the turnovers.

Judged by the changes made, it would seem that the Australians had lost to New Zealand last week. The All Blacks had three changes, the Wallabies six. And the introduction of Ma’a Nonu may be because of the injury to Sonny Bill Williams.

What is odd is that it was the speed in the Wallaby pack that was an important component of their victory. Now while New Zealand have opted to speed up, Australia have opted to bulk up. The All Blacks have brought in speedy Victor Vito in the place of Jerome Kaino and mobile Sam Whitelock for Luke Romano. And they have fast Sam Cane on the bench.

The Wallabies have bulked up and slowed down with Wycliff Palu on for iconic David Pocock and huge Will Skelton on for Dean Mumm.

The immediately understandable changes for the Wallabies are at halfback – where Nick Phipps had a horrid game last week, which may have contributed to Bernard Foley’s ordinary performance.

So much depends on a scrumhalf. It is interesting that the Wallabies have no specialist scrumhalf on their bench, in fact just two backs with Matt Giteau able to play scrumhalf. Clearly they want to keep their forwards fresh.

Players to Watch:
For New Zealand: Again we should nominate all of the All Black backs, especially the back three. But one must not overlook Conrad Smith, the most classical of outside centres with his straight running and his ability to create space for his wings. One would look to see far greater energy and personality from the New Zealand forwards. People who can crack a game open, Kieran Read and Dane Coles, were fairly anonymous last week.

For Australia: The Wallaby backs are certainly also worth watching, from Israel Folau to Nic White. For one thing you will see, for better or worse, Quade Cooper for all the time he is on the field. But Adam Ashley-Cooper may just have the greatest value for his side. In the Wallaby pack, the work of Scott Fardy may well be worth watching as it may be undervalued.

Head to Head: The front rows. They counted last week, not least in the fewness of the annoying resets, and there are the same six players at one another again this week. Mind you the thrust from behind may well be vital and the bulked Wallabies may be able to win a clear advantage there. Scrumhalves always have their own battle, but Aaron Smith tends to play the game with greater liveliness, accuracy and better manners than Nic White does. If the ball gets wide, the four wings could have great competition – Nehe Milner-Skudder versus Henry Sleight and Julian Savea versus Adam Ashley-Cooper. Those could be fascinating battles, given opportunities. After all three of the five tries last week were scored by wings.

Bledisloe Cup Game 2

Teams: All Blacks vs Wallabies
Venue: Eden Park, Auckland
Date: Saturday 15th August, 2015
Kick Off: 17:35pm (AEST)

Australia placed one hand on the Bledisloe Cup for the first time since 2002 when downing the All Blacks in Sydney last week, but face a monumental task in sealing the series at New Zealand Rugby’s spiritual home – Eden Park on Saturday night.

The Wallabies will be brimming with confidence ahead of the match but New Zealand will do everything in their power not to lose the 2015 Bledisloe Cup and will also be seeking winning form leading into this year’s World Cup.


Australia have produced several impressive efforts through this year’s Rugby Championship, but undoubtedly none more impressive than last week’s competition-sealing win over the All Blacks last weekend.

Given little chance for success in head-to-head betting markets, the Wallabies were not without fault but produced several impressive set plays and responses, and played a competitive 80 minutes of rugby to run out 27-19 winners.

The win also unearthed several exciting options for the Wallabies; particularly that of Nick White who played only 20 minutes off the bench at scrum half, scoring 15 points. Matt Toomua was equally impressive; adding several dimensions to Australia’s attack in the second half.

The decision to play key forwards Michael Hooper and David Pocock also proved a masterstroke by Coach Michael Cheika, who has confirmed the pair will retain their positions at 7 and 8 respectively for Saturday’s second Bledisloe test.

Australia will again be at near-full strength for Saturday’s fixture and offer exceptional value for money at current $4 odds in head-to-head betting markets.
New Zealand

Posting a comfortable 39-18 win over Argentina in their 2015 Rugby Championship opener, the All Blacks appeared to be on their way to another piece of silverware when muscling past South Africa 20-27 in Johannesburg in Week 2 of competition but received a huge wake-up call at the hands of the Wallabies last weekend.

New Zealand are known for blooding talent in tests leading up to a World Cup, as well as trialling combinations from their incredible wealth of talent and Coach Steve Hansen has certainly not bucked the trend this campaign; leaving several key starters out of clashes each week.

The normally patriotic New Zealand media absolutely tore apart the All Blacks following last weekend’s defeat, which will undoubtedly add extra spice to Saturday’s clash at Eden Park; a fortress in which they have not lost to the Wallabies since 1986.

The All Blacks were exposed everywhere from the front row to a quiet halves pairing and slow, one-dimensional back line last weekend and will without doubt return bigger and better in 2015 Bledisloe Cup game 2.

International rugby generally offers great value for money from a betting standpoint, and Saturday’s Bledisloe test in New Zealand is no exception.

Despite their loss in Australia last week, the All Blacks are widely expected to bounce back to winning form this weekend and remain clear $1.22 favourites to beat the Wallabies ($4) in head-to-head markets.

If the Wallabies are any chance of breaking both their Eden Park and Bledisloe Series hoodoo they will have to fly from the gates and build an early, defendable lead. Backing Australia to be leading at the break but ultimately lose the second Bledisloe test at a current quote of $5.50 may be worth consideration, while the same odds are also available for Australia to be leading at half time and go on to win.

Australia have been impressive in winning all three of their international tests this season; securing their first trophy since 2011’s tri-nations triumph.

New Zealand did enough to win against Samoa, Argentina and South Africa but were caught napping by the Wallabies last weekend and will probably take plenty of benefit from their defeat.

Australia faces a monumental task in adding the Bledisloe Cup to the trophy cabinet with a win at Eden Park but are undoubtedly offered their best chance of success since relinquishing the trophy in 2003.

Saturday’s Bledisloe Cup game 2 will also mark the final test matches of All Blacks legends Richie McCaw, Dan Carter and Conrad Smith on home soil; three players that deserve to be sent off champions.

Australia are sure to come out firing on Saturday evening, but value undoubtedly lies in try scoring, handicap and line markets as the All Blacks will probably just do enough to win.

With only 2 matches scheduled for 2015 due to the World Cup, the Aussies can’t afford to slip up at any stage so will need to bring their A Game when the series kicks off in Sydney and take the win. this will set up an epic clash at Eden Park in Auckland where the All Blacks have an absolute stranglehold over us and rarely lose.

If you thought the All Blacks presented a significant challenge for David Pocock, spare a thought for what he had to go through the last time he started a game of rugby at No.8, namely puberty.

“Under 12s. I was a pretty decent No.8 back in Under 12s,” Pocock recalled.

It’s been a while between cordials, in that case, yet Wallabies coach Michael Cheika seemingly had no choice but to make a bold selection call ahead of Saturday night’s meeting with the All Blacks in an effort to get the most out of Pocock and his other outstanding openside, Michael Hooper.

The pair have alternated starts over the first two rounds of The Rugby Championship. They’ve also been Australia’s best players. Now they finally get the chance to start in a move that Cheika believes was inevitable given their irrepressible form.

“I think they forced my hand, really. The both they both played in game one or game two, either as a starter or off the bench, I think they forced my hand into seeing if this can work. I believe it can. The way we’ve set up our team accordingly will go to supporting that,” Cheika said.

That the squad has been constructed to give the move the best chance of success shows how pivotal their work could be in the Bledisloe opener at ANZ Stadium – and how much Wallaby success will hinge on their effectiveness.

Pocock roved at number eight against the Springboks and Pumas but has never started a game in the position since school, let alone a Test match. Hooper will be at home in the seven but has already tweaked his game to accommodate Pocock’s dominance over the ball.

“You have to have a good relationship with the players you’re playing around. David and me, hopefully if we do a good job this weekend we can build and snowball into a really good combination,” Hooper said.

“There’s great competition across all jerseys, David and myself have been part of that. But it’s bringing out great play in myself and I’m watching David do some pretty cool things on the other side of the ball.”
It is a pairing Wallabies fans have been craving but hasn’t been without its flow-on effects, with Cheika tailoring other aspects of the squad help accommodate the alterations.

Will Skelton’s bulk in the middle will be used off the bench, with James Horwill and Dean Mumm the starting locks, while Scott Sio gets his first start in the front row alongside the returning Sekope Kepu and captain Stephen Moore.

In the backs, Matt Giteau returns at inside-centre, with Matt Toomua and Kurtley Beale on the bench. Quade Cooper has missed the final 23.

Cheika said he had no concerns playing both opensides would leave his side short of size and running options. He backed both Pocock and Hooper to take on the All Blacks line with vigour, while Horwill will be expected to do his share of grunt work as well as take a leading role in the line-out.

“I know the two lads are opensides but that doesn’t mean they don’t carry the ball physically. David made a pretty physical run down the edge of the field last week, bumping off a few lads,” Cheika said.

“Hoops has carried a lot of ball in the two matches so far. Neither of them have fear of taking the ball to the line.”

For every strength the pairing brings to the Wallabies, the All Blacks will find a weakness. Given the way his side was set upon by the Springboks back row in South Africa, Steve Hansen was hardly surprised with the selection news.

“Whilst that gives [the Wallabies] strength in some areas it probably weakens them in others. So we’ve just got to make sure we take advantage of those weaknesses and make sure that we don’t allow them to have a field day at the breakdown,” Hansen said.
