Wales and Australia go head-to-head at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday with the James Bevan trophy at plenty of pride at stake.

The trophy, named after the Australian born man who captained Wales in their first international against Wales in 1881, will be a secondary concern for the Wallabies as they seek to rescue a tour which has produced a win over England, a draw with Ireland and a shock loss to Scotland. Wales, meanwhile, have to back up their victory over Argentina last weekend after again failing to defeat the All Blacks.

Last season's loss to Wales left the Wallabies with a middling record in the Welsh capital in recent seasons. Since 2005 they have won one, drawn one and lost two in Cardiff with two tour victories over their opponents on home soil in-between.
