Australia v Wales: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

After a dismal Six Nations campaign was followed by a heavy 41-13 defeat to world champions South Africa, Wales will be hoping for an upturn in fortunes when they face Australia in the first of two tests on Saturday.

The Wallabies have not played an international fixture since bowing out of the Rugby World Cup at the pool stages last year and will be hoping for a strong performance in Sydney.

Australia v Wales stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

The Wallabies enjoy a vastly superior head-to-head record over Wales with 31 victories from their 46 total meetings in all competitions, including their last meeting on home soil, when Australia edged to a 20-19 victory back in 2012.

The most recent meeting was more enjoyable from a Welsh perspective and came in last year’s World Cup, as Warren Gatland’s men produced a dominant display to thrash the Wallabies 40-6 - a result that all but eliminated Australia from the tournament.
