Wales will face Australia Rugby at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 26th November. This will be the fourth and final autumn international to be played by Wales in 2022. The Nov. 26 game against Wales, who were stunned by the minnows of Georgia on Saturday, could be crucial for Rennie’s future.
In their most recent encounter, Wales narrowly beat Australia 29-28 during the 2021 autumn internationals, although the Wallabies played much of that match with only 14-men.
Overall, Wales and Wallabies Rugby have played each other on 44 occasions since their first meeting in 1908. The Wallabies have won 30 matches, whilst Wales have won 13 matches. There has also been one draw between the two sides.
Wayne Pivac’s Wales future will be decided by a post-autumn review after Saturday’s final match against Australia.

Today’s rugby news as Pivac to face WRU review and World Rugby launch investigation
WRU bosses Nigel Walker and Steve Phillips are focussed on allowing the team to prepare for the game against the Wallabies, but Pivac will have to come up with answers in a detailed review of the campaign as soon as it finishes. Wales’ shock 13-12 loss to Georgia was their eighth defeat of 2022 and a first ever against the Tier Two side. Another poor performance against the Wallabies could well prove one too many for the coach.
Wales will hold their first press conference today since Saturday, with the scrutiny and pressure on the coaching team sure to be at the top of the agenda.
Wales vs Australia Rugby Preview
Transport for Wales has also issued travel advice ahead of industrial action affecting services this Saturday while there will also be no Great Western Railway (GWR) services running in or out of Wales on that day
Rugby fans have once again been warned of disruption to train services ahead of Wales’ upcoming clash with Australia. The warning comes after there was significant disruption to transport the first Autumn Internationals game against New Zealand even though planned rail strikes were called off and further disruption after the third game against Georgia after the strikes recommenced.
Now fans have been told industrial action on Saturday, November 26, by the train drivers’ union Aslef at 12 other operators means Transport for Wales services across the Wales and Borders network are likely to be very busy. There are also no Great Western Railway services to and from Wales that day.
With kick-off at 3.15pm there will be a full city centre road closure from 11.15am until 7.15pm to ensure all ticketholders can get into and out of the stadium safely. Meanwhile the M4 is also expected to be very busy.
