Wallabies 2020 Season

The Green and Gold in 2020

With the shortened Covid-19 affected season, the Wallabies only played six matches in 2020 for the Bledisloe Cup and the Tri-Nations.

Dave Rennie made his debut as Wallabies coach.

The Wallabies had one win from six matches, with three draws and two losses.

The team started their year with a solid draw against the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup at Sky Stadium in Wellington. Even though it was a draw, it was a good start to the year and gave hope for the matches to come.

The following week Australia couldn’t break the Eden Park curse and lost 27-7.

The Tri-Nations were held in Australia featuring the Wallabies, the All Blacks and The Pumas. South Africa withdrew at the last minute due to lack of preparation time.

The Wallabies suffered a heavy loss, 43-5, against New Zealand in the opening match which was also match three of the Bledisloe. New Zealand retained the Bledisloe Cup for another year.

Their only win of the year was against New Zealand at Suncorp Stadium a week later. If you are to only get one win out of six matches it’s  good that it was against the All Blacks.

Both of their matches against Argentina ended in draws. Which the Pumas fans celebrated like they were wins.

New Zealand won the Tri-Nations with two wins from their four matches giving them the points advantage. Australia and Argentina had the same results across the tournament; one win, one loss and two draws, but the Pumas took second place due to the points difference.

Australia retained the Puma Trophy, the perpetual trophy between the Wallabies and the Pumas.
