The Bledisloe Cup is just around the corner, with the first match scheduled for 18 August.

Contested each year between Australia and New Zealand, the Bledisloe Cup is one of the most coveted trophies in world rugby. This year, the three matches will take place in Sydney, Auckland and Tokyo. The first is scheduled for 18 August at Sydney's ANZ Stadium. Then, the two teams will face off on 25 August at Eden Park, Auckland, before traveling to Japan in October to battle it out at Nissan Stadium in Yokohama.

The All Blacks are the defending champions after winning the series 2-1 in 2017. Not only that, but they hold the advantage with 46 Bledisloe titles to Australia's 12.
