Cheika says: “It’s obviously proven to be a tough place [New Zealand] for us to go and play, but I’m old-fashioned. I look forward to it. Bring it on. It’s a great opportunity.”
All Blacks legend Richie McCaw knows the Wallabies will be coming for his former teammates and says they can’t ssmug .
McCaw says: “People say ‘ohh, the All Blacks are really dominant’ but look, that can change quick if you let your guard down.”
