'Wales are back on track for a massive game against Australia next week'
Wales got their first win of the autumn on Sunday after overcoming Fiji with a late flurry, having lost to South Africa and the All Blacks before then. Meanwhile, Australia will arrive in Cardiff on the back of consecutive losses to Scotland and England.
It will be an encounter between two injury-ravaged sides, with Australia losing their captain and talisman Michael Hooper this week after the flanker picked up a foot injury against England. James Slipper will captain the Wallabies in his place.
When, where and how to watch the match
The match will kick-off at 17:30 (GMT) on Saturday November 20th at the Principality Stadium and will be broadcast live on Amazon Prime.
Wales are on a two-match winning streak over the Wallabies since 2018, having endured a 13-match losing run against them the decade before. Their last encounter was their 2019 pool stage clash, in which Wales came out on top with a 29-5 win.
Overall, the Wallabies have won 30 of their 43 matches, with Wales winning twelve and one draw.

Former Wales internationals Tom Shanklin and Sam Warburton said in commentary after the Fiji match that their compatriots will take a lot of confidence from the win.
“For large amounts of this game Wales were under a massive amount of pressure,” Shanklin said. “But for them to see it out, for them to come back, especially after being nine points behind at one stage, to come back to win 38-23, they’ll take a lot of confidence from this going into Australia next week.”
“Wales will be very pleased they got a win,” the former British & Irish Lions and Wales captain said. “Otherwise it would have been five defeats on the bounce- they’re back on track for a massive game against Australia next week.”
