Wales will look to end their Autumn Nations Series campaign on a high on Saturday as they take on Australia.

The hosts have won their last two encounters against Australia, including a pivotal 2019 World Cup pool victory, after a run of 13 successive defeats in the fixture.

They are coming off the back of their first victory of the autumn after they saw off Fiji in Cardiff on Sunday.

Wales vs Fiji team news

Wing Josh Adams and number eight Aaron Wainwright have recovered from injuries and will start Wales’ Autumn Nations Series finale against Australia on Saturday.


Adams was withdrawn just before kick-off when Wales faced Fiji last Sunday due to a calf muscle issue, while Wainwright missed that game because of a shoulder problem.

Elsewhere, prop Tomas Francis has successfully completed concussion return-to-play protocols and is recalled, and Seb Davies takes over from lock Will Rowlands, who suffered a head knock against Fiji.

Other starters include centre Uilisi Halaholo – his first of the autumn – with Halaholo, who tested positive for coronavirus last month and spent 10 days isolating, partnering Nick Tompkins in midfield.

Wales ‘desperate’ to end on a high

Wales and Saracens centre Nick Tompkins said: “We desperately want to finish on a high.

“It shows that if there is depth like that, it’s pushing players that maybe would be in the team harder, so it is only going to get better for the national team and the squad.

“I understand fans might be frustrated at the games, but other than the New Zealand one the others have been pretty close and been there to win – especially the South Africa game, which could have been flipped on its head.”

How to watch Wales vs Australia

The only way to watch Wales vs Australia live this year is with Amazon Prime Video.

The streaming service secured a new deal to exclusively broadcast Wales’ autumn games.

All teams, except for Ireland who will be broadcast on Channel 4, will have their games shown behind the paywall.

Amazon Prime costs £7.99 per month.

Usually, Wales’ games would also be shown live on S4C, however, with Amazon offering a Welsh language service, there will be no live coverage on the free-to-air channel.

Highlights of all Wales matches will be shown on the evening of the test, with the Australia highlights starting at 8pm on Saturday.
