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

Joe Schmidt's tenure as Australia boss began with a hard-fought win over Wales last weekend and they will square off for a second time on Saturday.

The Wallabies got revenge on Wales for last year's World Cup humiliation in France, while Warren Gatland's side now find themselves on an abysmal run of 14 losses in 20 games in his second tenure.

The Wallabies enjoy a vastly superior head-to-head record over Wales, with 32 victories from their 47 total meetings in all competitions.

They met in last year's World Cup as Gatland's men produced a dominant display to thrash the Wallabies 40-6 - a result that all but eliminated Australia from the tournament in France.

Australia have replaced Eddie Jones with Schmidt as boss since, and they ran out 25-16 winners in the first Test of this series in Sydney last weekend.
