"The Optus Stadium in Perth holds a capacity crowd of a little more than 60,000, all of which was sold out for the third and final Bledisloe Test on August 28"

"But Australian organisers are working to postpone the August 28 fixture in Perth by just one week, with New Zealand risking a A$5million (£2.6m) bill if they fail to show up again.

That’s the fee West Australia’s government would reportedly want to recoup after paying Rugby Australia the same sum for the rights to host the fixture."
