THE Qantas Wallabies and Buildcorp Wallaroos will be teaming up next month to defend home soil in a Bledisloe Cup double-header at ANZ Stadium.
The men’s and women’s outfits will play back-to-back against New Zealand in the first ever double-header of its kind in Australia on Saturday 18 August.
Wallaroos star Grace Hamilton is relishing the chance to play in Australia and alongside the Wallabies.
“I've never played on home soil in the Wallaroos jersey,” Hamilton said, “so to play at ANZ Stadium and to have a huge home crowd behind us will be massive moment for all of us.
“This is a new group of girls and we’re only going to get better, to have the chance to play before the Wallabies and experience a Bledisloe atmosphere will be awesome.”
The Wallabies will be gunning for their first Bledisloe Cup win since 2002 but despite the All Blacks dominance, the Aussies maintain a good record at ANZ Stadium.
A good win over the All Blacks in their last Bledisloe fixture in Brisbane last October will give the Wallabies confidence when they step onto the field later this month.
All four teams have named their preliminary squads for the double-header with teams to be finalised closer to the game. See them here:
