Finally we get to sink our teeth into some good international rugby. The Wallabies will host the All Blacks in the first game of the Bledisloe Cup. I’m not entirely happy with the selection of Berrick Barnes at fly half for the Wallabies. However, the All Blacks are still suffering from a World Cup hangover so I’m going to back the team that gets a point start and has had a week longer to prepare for the game. It’s going to be a close game so let’s take the Wallabies at the line just to be safe.
Sport: Rugby Union
