Wales looking to end 10-game unbeaten run against Australia

Wales face a tough task as they go into their final group stage match against Australia

They go into the crunch match knowing they have lost their last 10 games against the Wallabies and are understandably wary. And they know they will have to be at their best to win.

Shaun Edwards, the Wales assistant coach and defensive specialist, said: “Any team that can beat the All Blacks, which they did in the summer, and to win the Rugby Championship you are talking about an incredibly formidable force. We have to be at our absolute best if we have got any chance of beating them.”

Australia are favourites after embarrassing the hosts England at Twickenham they are also on a winning streak against the Welsh going back to November 2008.

Both sides have secured a place in the quarter finals but the losers will face two-time World champions South Africa.

The winners of the game will book a last-eight place against Japan or Scotland and should have a somewhat easier route to the final.
