BATHURST, NSW - The need to reclaim the Bledisloe Cup from New Zealand after 11 straight series losses has kiboshed any simmering tensions between the Brumbies and NSW Waratahs players, says Wallabies flyhalf Bernard Foley.

The All Blacks are on the cusp of equalling a record 12 straight series wins over their trans-Tasman rivals, with the Bledisloe Cup opener kicking off in Sydney on August 16. It will come just two weeks after the NSW Waratahs broke through for a maiden Super Rugby title win over the Crusaders, and just three weeks after the Tahs knocked out their bitter rivals the ACT Brumbies in the semi-final.
