The Kiwi players are crediting coach Stephen Kearney for a change in attitude that they feel has reflected in better performances in recent years.
Kearney has his men on the Gold Coast preparing for Friday night's ANZAC test against Australia.
Under Kearney the Kiwis have won the World Cup and 4-Nations title and he'll be hoping that he can now gain some success in the mid-year one-off clash.
They haven't won the ANZAC clash in 13 years and never on Australian soil, however hooker Issac Luke feels a change of approach may help....
The Kiwis are fully fit ahead of the clash, however Australia have concerns over back rower Paul Gallen and prop Matt Scott.
