Australia v Australia, Australia v New Zealand: Who’s up for a battle of the bots?

Australia will face Australia on Saturday night at the MCG to start the series, and the scoreboard will show a rematch between Australia and New Zealand.

The teams will be fighting for supremacy in the top eight, with Australia currently on nine matches unbeaten after their 6-0 win over the Kiwis last week.

However, the Kiwi team are not the only ones looking to turn things around, with the Australians and the Wallabies looking to extend their lead in the Test standings to seven.

The Wallabies lead the series in all three formats with an overall win-loss record of 11-3.

But Australia, led by captain Dane Haylett-Petty and co-captain Trent Merrin, have shown that they can still win at the drop of a hat.

In their last outing against New Zealand in Sydney, they were able to get a quick start and get back into the game by the 10th minute.

Australia coach Laurie Daley said he thought the Wallaby forwards would be a match for New Zealand on the night.

“They’re really good players, they can run the ball and get a good kicking game, and they have a great captain and they can win matches in their own way,” Daley told the ABC’s Morning Report.

“I thought the guys will do well.”

The Wallaby captain says the Australian forwards will be tough to contain.

“You’re going to have to have a good, strong defence and you’re going in to play hard,” Haylett Petty said.

“It’s going to be a battle.

They’re the best team in the world.

I thought the boys would be up to the task.”

Australia’s last match against the KiwIs was in their home final in Sydney in 2018, and both teams have had strong starts to the series.

The Australian team have won six of their past seven Tests, while New Zealand have won three of their previous four.

The Kiwis have been eliminated from the competition in the past four rounds.
