Qantas Wallabies v Manu Samoa

Farewell TestSaturday 7 September

The Qantas Wallabies will take on Manu Samoa in a farewell Test prior to the team’s departure for Japan on September 7.

Offering Qantas Wallabies fans a final opportunity to see the men in gold in action before they take on the world in Japan, it doubles as the team’s only match in Sydney this year.

The clash sets up an anticipated rematch of the infamous Test between the two nations eight years ago, prior to the 2011 tournament in New Zealand.  In a result that shocked the Rugby world, a little-known Manu Samoa outfit used a physical barrage to ambush the Wallabies at ANZ Stadium in Sydney, notching their first Test victory in five attempts against the Australians.

While the memory of that result faded as the Qantas Wallabies went on to a semi-final finish in New Zealand later that year, it will still be fresh in the minds of the thousands of Manu Samoa fans that erupted in jubilation at witnessing one of their nation’s greatest sporting triumphs.
