Speaking ahead of the match Cardiff Blues Captain Paul Tito said,
"It's always great to go out and meet the fans and we've had some superb support this season already."
"Hopefully the fans will come out in force for the Australia match as it promises to be a great occasion."
"The players are really looking forward to it. This is the first time that some of our players will play against an international side and from my experience of playing against them back in New Zealand they are always a tough team to beat."
