Australia have yet to taste defeat in the 2011 Four Nations and have already qualified for the Final at Elland Road on Saturday November 19.

They travel to Wrexham this Sunday to face a Wales who have yet to win a game in this tournament and have no real chance of doing so this weekend.

The Kangaroos are overwhelming favourites to make it three wins from three and can be backed at 1/750 with Bet365, while Wales are 50/1 to shock the Aussies - Even if the Australians field a weakened team there is no real hope that Wales will win the game. The draw is on offer at 66/1.

Wales are able to select prop forward Craig Kopczak after he was cleared of any wrongdoing for an incident that left New Zealand prop Sam McKendry with a broken jaw.

Kopczak was originally charged with the offence and looked set for a one-match ban, but he contested the charge and had the ban overturned. 

Australia were not quite so lucky, their forward Tony Williams will miss the game after he was suspended for one game for a high tackle on England’s Ben Westwood - The challenge on Westwood was so high Williams did not even try and contest the charge.

Australia have beaten New Zealand 26-12 and England 36-20, while Wales have crashed to 42- 4 and 36-0 defeats against England and New Zealand respectively.

Australia will obviously have one eye on the Four Nations Final so why not go with the handicap and back Wales with a 52 point start at 10/11 with Sportingbet, or you can back Australia -52 at even money with Bet365.

It is still unsure what teams will take to the field because there is only really pride to play for but you can back Wales to be leading at the break and Australia to win the game at 20/1 with Paddy Power.
