We've got all the details you need to watch Australia vs Wales live streams today, including global TV channels, free options and team news for the 2nd Test.

This two-match series Down Under was always going to be a rebuilding project for both sides, and it was the Aussies who had the better of the first encounter. A close game all the way, fullback Tom Wright's remarkable solo try from his own half with 10 minutes to go took the home side to an ultimately unassailable lead of 25-16.

New coach Joe Schmidt will be delighted with how his fresh-faced squad – including no less than seven debutants – went about things, combining tactical nous with welcome flashes of flair.

For Warren Gatland and Wales, the wait for a first international win in 2024 continues. Their pack showed signs that they can dominate sides, and they earned their stripes with a penalty try to keep their heads above water in the kinetic first half. There's nothing they'd like more than to head to Melbourne and repeat the famous win that they managed during last year's World Cup.

Australia vs Wales teams:

Australia: Tom Wright, Andrew Kellaway, Josh Flook, Hunter Paisami, Filipo Daugunu, Noah Lolesio, Jake Gordon; James Slipper (c), Matt Faessler, Taniela Tupou, Jeremy Williams, Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, Rob Valetini, Fraser McReight, Charlie Cale
