Weary Wallabies fans are bracing for the 2018 edition of the annual Bledisloe Cup.
The one-sided yet passionately contested rugby series between New Zealand and Australia due to kick off at the ANZ Stadium tonight.
The All Blacks have dominated the Trans-Tasman rivalry in recent history, claiming the last 15 titles.
After a spirited performance in 2017, the Wallabies come into the 2018 series with a mountain of expectation as they attempt to break the drought and take home the Cup for the first time since 2002.
With the past two Tests between the fierce rivals going down to the wire, Wallabies skipper Michael Hooper is bracing for another torrid trans-Tasman showdown tonight.
