Here, we give you a rundown of all of the teams involved, the playing rules, tournament format and the fixtures for what promises to be an enthralling event Which teams are involved?
New Zealand has won 10 of their last 11 Tests against Australia, including their last three. The All Blacks have won their last six games against Australia in The Rugby Championship, despite having trailed at half-time in two of their previous three contests.
It will be the first rugby Test played at Optus Stadium in Perth. Australia is undefeated in their last six games played in Western Australia W5, D1.
New Zealand has won 11 of their last 12 Tests away from home L1 , the only loss in that span coming against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin 17th November Australia will be chasing back-to-back wins in The Rugby Championship for the first time since when they defeated South Africa and Argentina over consecutive weeks on home soil.
The Wallabies have not held the Bledisloe Cup since The Kiwis have missed the fewest tackles 20 of any team in The Rugby Championship , 29 fewer than the next best side Australia, Beauden Barrett 36 carries, metres and Samu Kerevi 30 carries, metres are first and second respectively for both carries and metres gained in The Rugby Championship Match detail We are waiting for the kick-off.
The stand-off looked for some inside support from Kurtley Beale; he could not find the support and the Kiwis win the turnover and clear through Beauden Barrett.
Lealiifano opens the scoring in Bledisloe One. Lealiifano adds the extras. Hooper jostled with Kieran Read before knocking the ball backward in-goal for Lienert-Brown to dot down.
Game on! Beale knocked on when Marika Koroibete had acres of space. They do get a kickable penalty. Lealiifano puts his side back in front.
Joe Moody is the culprit. Kepu is isolated and the Kiwis survive. Read tells Beauden Barrett to kick to the corner. Australia survives — for now. Savea is miles offside, but he is not seen by the ref.
Hooper and Savea scuffle after the whistle has been blown. To beat the Kiwis, you have to score sevens, not threes. The ref should have played on instead of blowing the attack dead because the hosts had the advantage. That is a massive call by the TMO and referee.
It was dangerous and to the head, but Hooper was falling over in the tackle. Lealiifano takes the three. We are back underway in Perth for what should be a sensational second stanza.
Sio broke too early and that has probably cost the Aussies a certain seven points. The Wallabies do get the scrum, which is next to the posts. Australia attack wide — with a penalty advantage. Another phase attack by the Wallabies ends with Rory Arnold juggling a pass to Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, alone on the wing.
The All Blacks ran out of defenders.
Sensational score by Nic White in the left-hand corner after a storming run by Samu Kerevi. The centre beat Aaron Smith for pace, bounced Beauden Barrett before slipping the despairing cover tackle and offloading to the supporting White. Another attempt curls wide.
Beauden Barrett finishes off a long attack, one that went 16 phases inside the Aussie 22, before the playmaker darted inside the tired defenders to score by the posts. We have a ball-game. They win a ruck penalty to secure some possession and respite. Lealiifano extends the lead. Hodge has a double!
The Wallabies are running the Kiwis ragged.
Ngani Laumape gathers the restart and races away to score under the posts. The kick is over!
Beale, with an angled run, darts over from close range to scenes of delirium. Toomua adds the extras.
