How to Watch All Blacks vs Wallabies Bledisloe Cup Live Stream Online
All you need to know ahead of the All Blacks’ clash against Australia at Auckland’s Eden Park on Saturday, 14 August, kick-off at 7.05pm:
The All Blacks will once again be hoping Eden Park will live up to its history of being a fortress for the team when they face Australia in Bledisloe II tonight, even if an underwhelming crowd is predicted.
Last week saw New Zealand post an unconvincing 33-25 win over the Wallabies at the same venue, though that time it was packed with over 47,000 people.
This week, the stadium could be half full at best after NZ Rugby was forced to move the test from Wellington – due to the transtasman bubble closure and a scheduling clash with Beervana – and stage the fixture on eight days notice. So sluggish are sales that Sky Sport offered subscribers two for one tickets from Friday.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THE WALLABIES WON AT EDEN PARK?
The Wallabies will be looking to break a 35-year hoodoo when they face the All Blacks, last winning at the ground in 1986.
On that day, the Wallabies came out 22-9 winners, led by Andrew Slack and coach Alan Jones.
The ground has become a fortress for the Kiwis, having not lost at the Auckland venue since 1994.
