Facts on Wales vs Australia

There is always a special buzz around when Wales take on the Wallabies.  Maybe it is because out of all the Southern Hemisphere sides, Wales have tasted success more frequently against the men in gold.

Here are some other facts about Wales playing Australia:

  • They have played each other 39 times, with 28 victories to the Wallabies, 10 to Wales and 1 draw;
  • Australia have outscored Wales 912 to 596 in all 39 tests;
  • Australia is presently on their longest winning streak against Wales (11 tests since November 2009);
  • Highest Wallaby victory was 63 -6 in Australia on 22 July 1991;
  • Highest Wales victory was 28-3 in Wales on 20 December 1975;
  • The 2 teams first met in Wales on 12 December 1908 with Wales winning 9-6;
  • The Wallabies 15-6 win in the 2015 Rugby World Cup test in Twickenham was the first time neither side have scored a try;

This year’s Wales vs Australia looks like being another humdinger, with the Wallabies smarting and wounded after a poor Rugby Championship down under.
