Crockett has some unfinished All Blacks business

11:42 am on 6 November 2009

The New Zealand prop Wyatt Crockett says he has some unfinished business in an All Blacks jersey after what he describes as an underwhelming debut against Italy earlier this year.

The Canterbury loosehead replaces the suspended Tony Woodcock in the front row and he's out to make the most of a rare test start.

Crockett says he's better prepared for this weekend than he was back in June.

Meanwhile Kieran Reid who'll start at number eight for the All Blacks against Wales on Sunday morning says they must score first in Cardiff to negate the influence of a large and loud Millennium Stadium crowd.

Reid says the vocal Welsh crowd should be worth ten points to the home side and they need to be silenced quickly.
