Ashley-Cooper expecting to be tested

6:02 am on 12 September 2008

The Wallabies full-back Adam Ashley-Cooper says he's expecting the All Blacks to target him in tomorrow night's Tri Nations decider in Brisbane.

The 24-year-old admits he was disappointed with his performance against the Springboks at Ellis Park and was relieved when he was not axed from the starting line-up.

Ashley-Cooper says Blacks fly half Dan Carter has the ability to test him all night... he has a great kicking game, but he's hoping he's a little bit off on the night.

Ashley Cooper says iIt's about knowing his left foot, knowing where he likes to kick, knowing where he likes to put them, defending well and getting good field position.
