RugbyU: Wallabies Out To End 14 Years Of All Black Pain

SYDNEY, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Augst,2016) - Australia will set out to overturn 14 years of All Blacks torment when they open their Rugby Championship title defence against their New Zealand nemesis in Sydney on Saturday. The Wallabies have won just one of their last 13 encounters with the world champions and have not held the trans-Tasman Bledisloe Cup since 2002 against the dominant All Blacks. Australia thought the chance of finally mastering the Kiwi powerhouse had arrived following the retirement of legends Richie McCaw and Daniel Carter, but New Zealand will again start favourites after tossing aside Wales 3-0 in their home series last June.
In contrast, the Wallabies were second best to Six Nations champions England in a three-Test home series and including last year's World Cup final defeat to the All Blacks have lost their last four internationals. Coach Michael Cheika, who has bolstered his side with three overseas-based stars, says the All Blacks rate the Wallabies as having no chance of winning. "We know they think we're no chance to do anything and they're validated, I suppose, we haven't beaten them for ages in the series so it's understandable that they would think that," Cheika said.
