Australia have won four out of the last five matches between them and Six Nations Grand Slam champions Wales.
Australia suffered an embarrassing loss earlier this week to Six Nations wooden spooners Scotland but the team that lost on Tuesday is very different to the one that will play in this Saturday's match.
Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has made nine changes to the team that lost to Scotland and in the revised line up there are a couple of new caps.
Australia have played Wales 32 times since 1908 when they first played and Australia have lost 10 times won 21 times and there has been one draw.
On average when Australia play Wales they score 23 points and Wales score 14 points. In Australia though when the two teams play each other Australia 34 points and Wales score 12 points.
The teams have played each other 9 times in Australia and Australia have won 8 and lost once. That one victory was back in 1969 in Sydney.
Wales will start the match with much confidence having recently impressed in the World Cup and then going on to win the Six Nations with a Grand Slam.
Australia have beaten Wales twice in the last year but this match will have a different edge to it after the result earlier this week.
The Wallabies might have been complacent but all complacency will have gone thanks to Scotland and Wales will feel the backlash.
While Wales will be missing the likes of Shane Williams as he has retired the Wallabies will be without their star playmakers as well as Kurtley Beale, James O'Connor and Quade Cooper are all injured.
The Bookies have given Wales a 5 point start for this match - with an offer of Bet 5 and Get 50 in Bets. Australia should sneak this match by two points.
This match will be shown on TV in NZ, Aus, SA and in the UK on the Sky Sports.
