All Blacks in Brisbane

Brisbane may be tough, but....

Putting a bet on the game this weekend?

Don't believe everything you read about Brisbane. It may be tough, but the All Blacks get the job done in Brisbane more than anywhere else in Australia.

All Blacks v Wallabies in Australia:

Total 81 games, Wins 50, Losses 25, Draws 6 (Win Rate 61.7%)

Melbourne 4 games, Wins 2, Losses 2 (Win Rate 50.0%)

Sydney 56 games, Wins 33, Losses 20, Draws 3 (Win Rate 58.9%)

Brisbane 21 games, Wins 15, Losses 3, Draws 3 (Win Rate 71.4%)

Even since the professional era the stats show that the All Blacks winning rate is 66.7% in Brisbane, compared to 53.6% overall. 

Average scores in Australia:

Overall For 20, Against 15.2

Melbourne For 28.3, Against 22.5

Sydney For 19.8, Against 15.2

Brisbane For 18.7, Against 13.8

Admittedly, some of the sentiment is skewed by recent matches at Brisbane. You have to go back 12 games, to 1962, to find a margin greater than 10 points in Brisbane. There have been some close ones. But since the advent of professionalism, the All Blacks have won 4 out of 6 in Brisbane. So can the Wallabies continue their resurgence (2nd in the Rugby Championship!), finally deliver  for Michael Chieka, and grow from their narrow loss in Dunedin....? They may go close, but probably not...!
