Australia to host 2021 All Blacks Bledisloe Cup blockbuster in Perth

The Bledisloe Cup will return to Perth this year with the Wallabies set to face off against the All Blacks in August.

The blockbuster Test will see the Wallabies return to Optus Stadium for the first time since their memorable victory back in 2019.

Australia will be aiming to replicate that stunning night in 2019. In what was the first Bledisloe Cup Test ever played in the West, both the points-scoring and crowd records were broken, with the Wallabies coming out victorious over New Zealand in a 47-26 battle.

The 2019 fixture also saw close to 7,400 visitors travel to Perth for the historic event.

For fans in Perth, it doesn’t get much bigger and better than a Bledisloe Cup Test on home soil and we can’t wait to get back to Western Australia this year, and the brilliant Optus Stadium. It was a spectacular night back in 2019 and the entire Rugby community in Perth is buzzing ahead of the game in August.

The Wallabies will open their eToro Rugby Championship campaign with home-and-away Tests against New Zealand before four straight home Tests against South Africa and Argentina.
