Wales are the form team heading into this mouthwatering Autumn international clash with Australia this weekend.
Warren Gatland’s men have won all of their last six fixtures – including a dominant victory over Scotland in their opening game of this end-of-year series last week.
But the opposition does get tougher this weekend, with Australia the visitors to the Principality Stadium.
Despite only winning two of their last six, Australia remain one of the biggest forces in world rugby and will provide one of the toughest tests for this Welsh team ahead of next summer’s World Cup.

Wales team news
Gareth Anscombe has retained the Wales fly-half role ahead of Dan Biggar for Saturday’s Under Armour Series clash against Australia.
Anscombe impressed during Wales’ 21-10 victory over Scotland last weekend, when Northampton number 10 Biggar was unavailable as England-based players were ruled out because that game fell outside World Rugby’s autumn Test window.
Biggar and his fellow British and Irish Lions back – Saracens wing Liam Williams – are on the bench, with the Welsh Rugby Union announcing three changes as head coach Warren Gatland hands starts to Worcester wing Josh Adams, Exeter prop Tomas Francis and Ospreys lock Adam Beard.
Wales: 15-Leigh Halfpenny, 14-George North, 13-Jonathan Davies, 12-Hadleigh Parkes, 11-Josh Adams, 10-Gareth Anscombe, 9-Gareth Davies, 8-Ross Moriarty, 7-Justin Tipuric, 6-Dan Lydiate, 5-Alun Wyn Jones (captain), 4-Adam Beard, 3-Tomas Francis, 2-Ken Owens, 1-Nicky Smith
Replacements: 16-Elliot Dee, 17-Rob Evans, 18-Dillon Lewis, 19-Cory Hill, 20-Ellis Jenkins, 21-Tomos Williams, 22-Dan Biggar, 23-Liam Williams.
