3 Have your say

    Australia’s end-of-year tour continues into Europe, with the Wallabies tackling Wales in Cardiff. The match will take place at Principality Stadium and starts at 4:15am on Sunday, November 12 (AEDT).

    These nations have faced off at least once a year since 2005. Of those 18 encounters, Australia have won 15, with Wales winning just twice and a draw being played out too.

    The Wallabies have enjoyed seven consecutive victories in Cardiff, with their last loss to the Dragons – both at the venue and overall – coming back in 2008.

    Wales actually enjoyed an early dominance of Australia in the beginnings of their rivalry, winning eight of the first 13 matches between the countries. Since 1991, however, Wales have only triumphed over the Wallabies twice.
