ABs prepared for backlash in second Tri-Nations test

9:05 am on 12 July 2010

The roles will be reversed for this weekend's second Tri-Nations test in Wellington after the All Blacks overturned a losing sequence to the Springboks with a 20-point thumping at Eden Park on Saturday night.

The All Blacks went highly motivated by three Tri-Nations losses to the boks last year, and centre Conrad Smith says they'll be bracing themselves for a backlash on Saturday night.
