All Blacks honour former great Colin Meads

Australia coach Michael Cheika

"I think Cheik was really happy with my impact when I came off the bench last week, the energy that I brought to the team and probably defensively he was happy with the way I controlled our defence".

"If he can't do his job properly on the field it's going to be a little bit hard for him to play", Cheika said on Friday. He ripped in straight away.

"It's about taking your opportunity and Rodds in the wrong gear that day was taking his opportunity and putting us through our paces and that's what you want from a guy like him".

Hooper though was more than satisfied with the response from his side after the loss.

"Franks may be out for a while so will be monitored", coach Steve Hansen told reporters in Dunedin.

"But you've only got a week apart between each game and you can try your best to put your best foot forward each week. Not just looking to get the ball back, but getting into it".

With so much going against them, the last thing the Wallabies needed was a late injury.

The chaebol includes a shipbuilding division, a construction company, and pharmaceuticals and advertising arms. The five-year sentence is one of the longest prison terms given to a business leader in South Korean history.

It is backs-against-the-wall territory for the Australians, who are being given zero chance by not just New Zealanders but the majority of Australians who tuned into their spiritless first half at ANZ Stadium.

Kieran Read warned New Zealand are "really desperate" to inflict more torment on Australia after the Wallabies gave them a "kick in the guts" following a first-half blitz from the world champions in Sydney. Meads died last Sunday aged 81 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

The All Blacks will be wearing special jerseys in honour of Meads, and both sides will observe a minute's silence before the game.

"We certainly touched on (Meads) through the week, talked about him in our clubrooms this week and we're obviously playing a great tribute to him on our jersey tomorrow night. It won't necessarily win us the test match - we have to do that ourselves".

Read acknowledged he wouldn't be too surprised if the Wallabies tried to push them around in his 102nd test. "We know he was pushing to the last minute to get right".

"We slightly took our foot off the throat (and) if we're not there mentally, they're a team that can do that - they're unsafe and hungry". "They're risky, they're hungry and they've certainly got a point to prove".
