Deans warns of changes

6:22 am on 2 September 2008

Australia rugby coach Robbie Deans has warned changes could be made to his team following the Wallabies' record 53-8 Tri-Nations shellacking at the hands of South Africa.

The Springboks ran in eight tries to one in Johannesburg to inflict upon Australia its largest defeat in terms of margin.

However the Wallabies still remain in contention to win both the Tri-Nations and Bledisloe Cup and will do so if they beat New Zealand in Brisbane on Saturday week.

After returning to Australia, Deans says they certainly don't want to finish with a performance like the last and there's no reason why they should.
