Australia seek to win back the Bledisloe Cup and end years of heartache.
Cape Town - All Blacks captain Richie McCaw will look to extend a remarkable record which has seen him record 21 wins over the Wallabies, a record by any player against any nation.
According to the allblacks.com website
, while McCaw will look to extend that number this weekend, veteran Wallabies lock Nathan Sharpe, who will be playing his 25th Test against the All Blacks, will be seeking just his seventh win.
