Wales post match press conference:
Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has taken a different approach to the game, making a number of changes to the team that was given a scare by the Flying Fijians in their first match of the tournament. Notably, halves Will Genia and Bernard Foley have come in for Nic White and Christian Lealii’fano whilst Dane Haylett-Petty has taken over at fullback for Kurtley Beale.
Last November, Wales broke a 13-match losing streak against the Wallabies and will be hoping to build from that victory. Gatland’s latest side includes nine players from last year’s victory.
