Wales are still proving a crowd-puller Down Under.
Australian rugby officials have revealed that the Test against Wales in Sydney will be the biggest of their three games against touring sides this month - including Six Nations champions England - with more than 60,000 tickets already sold.
It is a remarkable figure given Wales' recent form and one that is expected to rise closer to the 83,000 capacity of the Telstra Stadium - formerly known as the Olympic Stadium - during the next seven days leading up to the game.
'Despite their recent form and results, Wales still have a strong reputation on the world stage and people know that on their day, they can still come good,' said a Australian Rugby Union spokesman.
'The passion and history of rugby in Wales is world famous and people want the chance to go and see them play.'
In a sports-mad country as large in area as Australia, ticket sales for the Sydney Test have helped by the decision to stage the Wallabies' other two Tests this month in other cities.
On Saturday they faced Ireland in Perth's Subiaco Stadium with 38,000 of a maximum 42,000 tickets already sold, while the clash with England at Melbourne's Telstra Dome - formerly known as Colonial Stadium - is expected to match the record 56,000 full-house that watched the second Test between Australia and the British Lions in 2001.
'Sydney is probably our biggest rugby market so undoubtedly people there are taking the chance to see the Wallabies while they are in town,' added the spokesman. 'It is sure to be quite an occasion.'
