Australia takes on New Zealand this weekend for the fourth time in five consecutive weekends as the Rugby Championship continues, with the Wallabies looking to bounce back from last weekend’s humiliating defeat.
With both sides going through something of a post-World Cup transition, fans were prepared for the unexpected in a four-game series that included the Bledisloe Cup clashes before the start of the Rugby Championship, following South Africa’s withdrawal and Argentina’s requirement to quarantine ahead of their participation Down Under.
But after a 16-16 draw in the opening contest in Wellington, the All Blacks returned to winning ways with a comfortable 27-7 win in Auckland. The Wallabies hoped that returning to home advantage would bring a change in fortunes, but it produced the complete opposite as New Zealand romped to a 43-5 victory that in truth could have been even larger.

The All Blacks take on the Wallabies in the first Bledisloe Cup test in Auckland on Saturday night.
After three weeks off since their respective July series, both teams now ramp it up in what will now be the first of two successive Bledisloe tests at Eden Park.
This first one is a standalone fixture, with next weekend’s coinciding with the start of the Rugby Championship, and to have any chance of making the August 28 clash in Perth a live contest for the silverware they haven’t held since 2002, the Aussies will have to pull off something mighty big at a venue they have not beaten New Zealand at since 1986.
But while they are once again rated big outsiders – $7.10 at the NZ TAB – the Wallabies can at least take confidence from last year, where they managed a draw in the first trans-Tasman clash of the year, in Wellington, then also a win in Brisbane, either side of comfortable All Blacks wins in Auckland and Sydney.
They are perhaps also more battle-hardened than their hosts, coming off a tough 2-1 home series win over France, while the All Blacks put a ton on Tonga and two half-centuries on Fiji, the latter at least posing a few questions at times.
All Blacks thump Wallabies in Second Bledisloe Cup Test
New Zealand has beaten Australia 40-28 at Eden Park.
AUSTRALIA’S 32-year hoodoo at the Eden Park fortress has been extended for at least another 12 months as the All Blacks claimed the Bledisloe Cup for a historic 16th consecutive year.
Wallabies coach Michael Cheika erupted in his press conference following the All Blacks’ punishing 40-12 win.
The Wallabies mentor went into meltdown over two questions surrounding his immediate future and the growing threat that Rugby Australia will swing the ax.
The Daily Telegraph’s Jamie Pandaram asked Cheika if he is having thoughts of walking away from Australian rugby’s top job — and it attracted a heated response from the former Waratahs coach.
“You wouldn’t know, you’ve never coached, you wouldn’t know if there’s a debate in my mind,” Cheika said.
“I don’t know where you come off saying that. I told you exactly what I think about it, categorically.
“So if you think there’s a debate going on in your own mind you need to go and get some pills to sort it out because there ain’t no debate going on in my mind.”
Senior rugby reporter Georgina Robinson was also criticized by the under-pressure coach when she asked if he was worried about losing his job.

“Eden Park is a place that most teams fear but we’re excited to get another crack after last weekend’s disappointment,” Rennie said.
“To beat New Zealand, you have to win the collisions and be clinical for 80 minutes and we didn’t do that. “We’ve got a lot more in us and we’ll show that on Saturday night.” Experienced halfback Nic White is back from injury and named on the bench which means no room for Waratahs captain Jake Gordon.
Veteran prop Scott Sio is also in the reserves in place of Angus Bell and is in line for his first Test action of the season.
To’omua’s promotion sees Hunter Paisami shift out to the No.13 jersey and will take some pressure off Noah Lolesio, who kicked two from seven last weekend.
Wallabies fall short in chasing down All Blacks
Twenty minutes of All Blacks shock and awe was enough to continue a 35-year Wallabies losing streak at Eden Park as New Zealand took the early Bledisloe Cup points with a win that could serve as an entree to an even better main course next week.
There was a significant attacking fervor from the undaunted Australians who scored the final three tries and served notice that next week’s same-time, same-place encounter could demand more from the home team.
The laterally, however, plus an 80-minute powerhouse performance from captain Michael Hooper and an 18-9 penalty count in Australia’s favor, wasn’t enough to secure their first win against the Kiwis in Auckland since 1986.
Instead, the 33-25 scoreline came on the back of four Kiwi tries in just over 20 minutes starting with one right on the halftime whistle and followed by three more inside the first 20 minutes of the second half in a backline blitz.
