The New Zealand born Italian rugby winger Kaine Robertson says the All Blacks are so well supported in Italy that it has probably affected the Italians performance on the field.
Robertson expects the 80 thousand sell-out at the San Siro stadium in Milan on Sunday morning to be evenly divided between Blue and Black jerseys.
Robertson says he's suffered 3 big losses in his previous clashes with the All Blacks and so is hoping to make it a bit closer this weekend.
The All Blacks beat Italy 27-6 in their clash in Christchurch in June.
Robertson says the fans and the players have to overcome the aura of the All Blacks...
