Henry says his side needs to restore structure and balance

8:23 am on 27 July 2008

The New Zealand rugby coach Graham Henry says his side has to re establish its structure ahead of the return Bledilsoe cup test against Australia.

The All Blacks started badly in last night's loss 34-19 to the Wallabies, disjointed and seemingly unnerved by the occasion.

Against enthusiastic defence a scrambling New Zealand did take the lead early in the second half 19-17 but then in the face of a high turnover rate by the visitors the Wallabies scored 17 unanswered points.

He says captain Richie McCaw is a 50/50 chance of playing this Saturday in Auckland.
