The Australian rugby team has arrived in Auckland to finish preparations for the second Bledisloe Cup test on Saturday.

The Wallabies are both well aware of the stormy weather buffeting the country and wary of an All Black backlash at Eden Park.

After a comprehensive win in the first match in Sydney last weekend, Wallaby flanker George Smith recognises they may have tweaked the tiger's tail.

Smith says the New Zealanders will be hurting, Eden Park will be a great atmosphere and it should be a great game.
