The Castrol Edge Tri Nations series will come to a thrilling end when the Wallabies host the All Blacks in the series-deciding Bledisloe Cup clash this Saturday, live from Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium at 7.30pm on Channel Nine.
The Wallabies and All Blacks are on equal points at the top of the 2011 Castrol Edge Tri Nations series ladder, ahead of South Africa. The victors on Saturday night will not only claim the series and the silverware, but also hold bragging rights going into Rugby World Cup 2011 in September.
At Eden Park in New Zealand on August 6, the Wallabies went down to the All Blacks 30-14 in the first Bledisloe clash. With a home turf advantage now, the Wallabies desperately want a win on Saturday night.
With both the Wallabies and All Blacks squads for Rugby World Cup 2011 announced, it’s pure pride at stake and sporting rivalry at its best in Saturday night’s engrossing Bledisloe Cup rematch.
The Nine Network will broadcast the game live from 7.30pm.
Wide World of Sports’ Ken Sutcliffe will host Nine’s broadcast. Joining him on the expert panel are former Wallabies captains George Gregan and Andrew Slack and injured Wallabies prop Benn Robinson, while Nine’s Tim Sheridan will be pitch-side at Suncorp Stadium.
