Wallabies v All Blacks –  The Bledisloe Cup gets underway with the Wallabies out to do the seemingly unthinkable to defeat the all-conquering All Blacks. This is The Roar‘s ultimate guide to live streaming and watching the match on TV.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 8pm (AEST) on Saturday, August 19. It’s being held at ANZ Stadium in Sydney.The Bledisloe Cup has been held by New Zealand since 2003, with Australia only winning three of their past 20 matches against the New Zealand side.

Furthermore, the first two matches of the Bledisloe form part of the Rugby Championship, which also features South Africa and Argentina. The third match of the Bledisloe is played outside of the Championship.How to watch the match on TV The match is being broadcast on TV in Australia through two networks. The first option, and the broadcaster of every Rugby Championship match, is Foxtel.They held the rights to broadcast every match during the Super Rugby season and continue to do so for all Wallabies internationals.

Their broadcast will begin a full hour before the start of the match at 7pm (AEST). That allows them to have a long build-up to kick-off in Sydney, while they are also expected to stay on the air until 10:30pm (AEST) to wrap things up – or roughly 45 minutes after fulltime.

If you’re looking to watch on free to air TV, Network Ten are also broadcasting the match live and in full.Their coverage will be a little shorter than Foxtel’s, but will still go live at 7:30pm (AEST), allowing for a half-hour pre-game. They will stay on the air until 10:15pm (AEST).

How to live stream the match online With the game being broadcast on two channels, it can also be live streamed in two different methods.

Michael Cheika is no dill, he’s arguably one of the most switched on blokes in world rugby.The 50-year-old speaks fluent French, Italian, and Arabic, has built up a hugely successful multi-million dollar fashion house from scratch called ‘Live Fashion’.

He has done this in and around his time in rugby where he was a fearsome, uncompromising back rower of 300-plus first grade games with the Galloping Greens.Every week Randwick’s Shute Shield opponent would ask the big question – “Is Cheika playing this week?”

A premiership player became a premiership coach before becoming the first to win major tournaments in both hemispheres – the Heineken Cup with Leinster in 2005, and the Super Rugby crown with the Waratahs in 2014, ending a 19-year drought.

When Cheika took over from Ewen McKenzie as Wallaby coach in November 2014, he had a debut win over Wales 33-18 at Millennium Stadium.After 16 internationals Cheika had 11 wins to boast a healthy 68.75 per cent success rate.

The 16th international was the 2015 Rugby World Cup final, and although the Wallabies were never going to beat the awesome All Blacks, it was no mean feat reaching the decider at Twickenham.In 18 internationals, the Wallabies have only won eight, or 44.44 per cent, with the Wallabies dropping from two in the world, to fourth.

Cheika knows only too well he desperately needs a tactical change, and when Stephen Moore unselfishly stood down as captain en route to retirement, the new tactics needed a new skipper.

Why on earth would under the pump Cheika give Michael Hooper the nod when Hooper’s track record is a whole lot worse than his coach?Since rugby turned pro there’s been 19 Wallaby captains, and where does Hooper stand?

Dead motherless last among the eight skippers who have led the Wallabies in at least ten internationals.It’s no surprise John Eales tops the list. Not only was one of the world’s all-time great locks, but he was an inspirational leader who kicked vital goals as well. Source
