Bledisloe Cup 2020: Buoyant Wallabies fans eye Eden Park glory

There's growing belief across the Tasman that the Wallabies can finally end their 34-year Eden Park hoodoo on Sunday.

Buoyed by a 16-16 draw in Wellington last weekend, at least one former Wallaby's suggested the All Blacks are as vulnerable as they've ever been.

The Wallabies came within a whisker of a famous victory, with the ball hitting the post on a Reece Hodge penalty attempt at the death.

Now the green and gold faithfull are starting to believe that their 34-year drought in Auckland is about to end.

"We are hopeful that they will," former Wallaby Peter FitzSimons tells Newshub.

"Why? Because in 2020, give us a break. This is the year we need that shaft of sunlight."

FitzSimons admits he's fallen out of love with rugby in recent times, but new coach Dave Rennie's reeling him back in.

"This team, the way they played, there's been a lot of love extended their way and if they beat the All Blacks at Eden Park, it'll turn into a marriage," he adds.

Die-hard Sydney-based rugby fan Chris Walker is feeling the same way, after last week taking out a full-page newspaper urging the Wallabies on.

The 81-year-old believes the tide could soon turn.

"You've got a new coach, you've got a new captain, you've got new players... you're more vulnerable than you were," Chris Walker tells Newshub. 

"Can we take advantage of that? I hope so... good time to be trying."
