“We’re all aware of Israel Folau’s capabilities and the strength he has from a physical point of view,” Barrett said.

He added, “Kurtley’s a very exciting player and he’s so unpredictable I think they certainly don’t lose anything by having him there, if anything it’s probably more threatening.” Barrett is also going towear the No.15 at Optus Stadium. Barrett also felt that they would be better in their second hit-out.
“I think we’ve learned a lot from one having one game under our belts,” Barrett said in a statement.
“At times we were perhaps in each other’s pockets.
“Tactically and structurally, if we can be aligned, it will work best for the team and we should see some good rewards from that,” He added.

Mitchell believes the Wallabies can win back the Bledisloe as well as can end the 17 years of despair. He said, “I think we’ve got into a habit over the past decade of trying to work out how to defend the All Blacks rather than flipping that and picking a team that they’re going to have to defend. I think this weekend is one that’s going to put the New Zealand team under pressure defensively and they’re going to have to make decisions and it’s up to those four ball players to make the right choices.”
