Wallabies halfback Will Genia rates winning a Bledisloe Cup above the World Cup, describing a series victory against the New Zealanders as his “number one priority”
The Wallabies head into Saturday’s 2018 Bledisloe opener in Sydney trying to end New Zealand’s 15-year hold on the trophy.
Asked what winning the Bledisloe would mean to the Wallabies, Genia said: “everything”.
Genia said it was difficult to establish whether winning a Bledisloe was harder than claiming the World Cup given he hadn’t done either but said the former was now his specific goal.
The Wallabies will host the All Blacks at 10.05pm Saturday while South Africa will take on Argentina at 3.05am Sunday.
