The Wallabies will be out to change 35 years of history at Eden Park tonight in their Bledisloe Cup opener with the All Blacks while New Zealand will be celebrating because their halfback Aaron Smith will become just the 10th All Blacks player to play 100 Tests when he runs out in Auckland.

Right alongside Smith will be captain Sam Whitelock, the only other current All Blacks centurion.

Not since 1986 have the Wallabies beaten New Zealand at Eden Park, a run that has helped keep the Bledisloe Cup trophy in New Zealand.

Australia secured a heart-stopping 16-16 draw with New Zealand on their first-up Test in New Zealand last year.

The last time the Wallabies won the Bledisloe Cup was in 2002.

The Wallabies clash with the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup opener at 7.05 tonight.
