WELLINGTON - Australia will play with extra sting and, importantly, with more accuracy in the second Bledisloe Cup Test in Wellington on Saturday according to All Blacks coach Steve Hansen.
The Hansen mind games that marked the build-up to the first Test in Sydney have gone.
Instead he is talking up the Wallabies' likely improvement from a 47-29 loss which began the reign of new coach Ewen McKenzie on a low.
That result saw the Wallabies drop behind England to fourth in the world rankings, the first time they have been outside the top three since June 2010.
Rather than rub it in, Hansen says he is bracing for a furious response from opponents who must beat the All Blacks on New Zealand soil for the first time since 2001 to keep the three-Test Bledisloe Cup series alive.
"I think they've only got one response possible, they'll come at us with everything they've got," Hansen said.
"There will be a lot more purpose about their game, a lot more energy and they'll work hard on being a lot more accurate than they were."
The Wallabies dominated most statistics in Sydney, reluctant to kick possession away.
However, the more conservative All Blacks' tactics paid off, pouncing on a swag of gift-wrapped Australian turnovers.
"They made a massive amount of unforced errors. If they get that out of their game, then they're right in the performance," Hansen said.
