Australia are one win away from ending 17 years of Bledisloe Cup heartbreak, and they prepare to visit New Zealand on Saturday with a chance to win the trophy for the first time since 2002.

The Bledisloe Cup has been reduced to just two matches this year due to the forthcoming Rugby World Cup, but the Wallabies have to win the second match to reclaim the trophy, according to The Roar.

Saturday’s contest will be played at Eden Park in Auckland, a venue with one of the fiercest reputations in all of rugby. The All Blacks have won over 85 percent of their matches against the Wallabies in the stadium and haven’t lost a match at the venue since 1994.

Australia haven’t won at Eden Park since 1986:
