Hello and welcome to tonight's live blog of the Bledisloe Cup match between the All Blacks and Australia in Sydney.
The Wallabies have improved since their 41-33 loss in Bledisloe III last year and fancy their chances against the All Blacks after winning their last seven tests on the trot.
But the All Blacks have a decent record of their own. What is it? Oh, just 17 wins in a row.
Alos, the Wallabies are winless in their last six tests against the world champions – an 18-all draw in October, 2012 is as close as they have been since their 25-20 victory in Brisbane back in 2011.
But they looked sharp against France and the selection of Kurtley Beale is a clear sign the Wallabies are prepared to chance their arm tonight.
The All Blacks showed some signs of vulnerability against England in June but they still won the series 3-0. A Wallabies victory is not impossible but the hosts will have to be at their best, and have luck on their side to win, while the All Blacks are the masters of finding a way to win.
Kick off is just over 30 minutes away and it's a wet old night in Sydney. Not quite sure who that favours?
Anyway, I'm Steven Holloway and with the help of my trusty pal Nick Edlin, will bring you all the live action, colour, tweets and pics from tonight's match. To join in on the chat click 'comment' and have your say. Nick is standing by to answer any and all of your curly pre-match questions.
We're just over 20 minutes away from kick off.
Quite possibly - in wet conditions accumulating points will be critical.
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has sprung a surprise after leaving full-back Israel Dagg out of his 23 man squad. Dagg, the incumbent since 2011, missed the final two June Tests against England with a knee injury but Ben Smith will wear the 15 tonight. Outside-centre Conrad Smith will also miss out tonight after darting back to New Zealand on Friday morning to witness the birth of his child.
Highlanders sensation Malakai Fekitoa will start in Smith's absence. The rest of the squad is predictable. Aaron Cruden will start at flyhalf for Dan Carter (leg) and Wyatt Crockett replaces Tony Woodcock (shoulder) at loosehead.
Just over a minute to play. Aussie have a scrum 20m out from the line. Who wants to be the hero?
Into the last 40 seconds now, this will be the last play.
They will do it again. The ball nearly came out but the ref decided we haven't had enough scrums tonight.
The ball is out. Foley has it.
Penalty to the All Blacks!
They are going to run it.
Aaron Smith takes the quick tap.
All Blacks on their own 22.
The ball is knocked on and it's all over. A draw.
FULLTIME: ALL BLACKS 12 AUSTRALIA 12
It's a tryless draw. The sixth time these two teams have drawn a test. The crowd don't know what to do and neither do the players. But it's all over. 12-12 the final score.
Thanks for joining us tonight guys, it was a roller coaster of emotions. Even with all the scrum resets. Make sure you stick around for Gregor Paul's match report, Cameron McMillan's First Take column and Patrick McKendry's side bar. Plus we will have all the video highlights up very shortly.
Hope you have enjoyed our coverage.
