SYDNEY - Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie has finalised his bench for tomorrow's Rugby Championship opener, with Western Force loose forward Ben McCalman omitted for the clash with the All Blacks at ANZ Stadium.

McKenzie has opted for a traditional 5-3 split on the bench, with hooker James Hanson, props Ben Alexander and Pek Cowan, lock Will Skelton and back-rower Scott Higginbotham covering the forwards.

The three backline replacements are halfback Nick Phipps, five-eighth Bernard Foley and outside back Tevita Kuridrani.

The all-conquering All Blacks arrived in Sydney last night to finalise their preparations for the Bledisloe Cup blockbuster.
