The Bledisloe Cup has proven impossible for Australia to regain for what is now 19 straight years. And it would take a brave person to bet on that ending in 2021.

That's because game 1 and game 2 in this year's match-up are both at Eden Park. That's right, the same Eden Park where no Australian side has tasted victory since way back in 1986.

The fixture change is due to difficulties entering New Zealand during the pandemic. The original plan was Auckland, Perth and then Wellington before it had to be altered. Game 3 will now be in Perth on 28 August, a match that is part of the Rugby Championship. This is how you can follow all the action live.

When is the 2021 Bledisloe Cup?

  • Game 1: Saturday 7 August, 4:30pm AEST, Eden Park, Auckland
  • Game 2: Saturday 14 August, 4:30pm AEST, Eden Park, Auckland
  • Game 3: Saturday 28 August, 8pm AEST, Optus Stadium, Perth
