The All Blacks won’t push the panic button after finishing third in the Rugby Championship.
Having suffered a shock 47-29 defeat to Australia last weekend, coach Steve Hansen says his charges will bounce back when they face the Wallabies in the return leg of the Bledisloe Cup on Saturday.
Hansen says of the second clash against their rivals: “It’s always a big game. We have been here before, in 2015 it was exactly the same scenario.
“As I said, don’t push the panic button, push the button that says we’re going to get the discipline right, we’re going to make our tackles, get our game structure right and turn up and play well.”
With Sanzaar investigating Scott Barrett’s red card for a shoulder charge in last week’s game, there is a chance that he might miss the next match and Brodie Retallick out with a dislocated shoulder, NZ might have some selection issues.
