The Wallabies will take on Wales in their first Spring Tour match. Set to be played at 4:20am (AEDT) on Sunday, November 11 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, this is a crucial match for the tourists.
After a dismal Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship campaign, this tour of three matches will give the Australians a chance to start reversing their form and finding a way to fight their way out of the funk.
With the 2019 Rugby World Cup on the horizon, the Wallabies are at a historical low point, rankings-wise and must find a way to start winning and building combinations during this series.
