Australia’s victory against Argentina pushed them up to third in the world rankings, but they believe they haven’t fully hit their straps yet as Bernard Foley highlighted. Australia put together a much better showing in their second Test in August against the All Blacks after losing the first by 20 points, a match that saw New Zealand cruise to a 40-6 half-time score. The second Test saw Australia run out to a quick lead before their rivals completed an epic comeback with just minutes left to play, winning by six. The All Blacks overcame a 17-point deficit.

Sonny Bill Williams is an All Black who regularly draws praise for his play on the field however recently he has received a spot of criticism from outside of their camp regarding his form. The center started all six of New Zealand’s Rugby Championship matches – playing 417 minutes in total – with only Kieran Read and Damian McKenzie spending more time on the park.

Finally, I would like to say, with the All Blacks having already secured the Bledisloe Cup 2-0, this dead rubber at Suncorp Stadium is the last opportunity for Australia to beat a New Zealand team in 2017. Meanwhile, Sam Cane will play his 50th Test in an All Blacks career which started five years ago in June 2012 when he made his Test debut against Ireland.
