The Aussies suffered an almighty scare in their opening match – trailing Fiji for 61 minutes before going on to claim a 39-21 bonus point win.

WALES had lost an incredible 13 consecutive Tests against the Wallabies before last November when they picked up a 9-6 win which could prove crucial psychologically.
Of that game, Dan Biggar said: “The relief to get the win against them in November was big and it gives us a little bit more belief and confidence going into Sunday’s game.
“The players they have picked are still excellent players. They’re probably bringing a little bit more stability to their team.”
