Mils admits new Super Rugby season is tough

7:12 am on 3 July 2011

The All Blacks fullback Mils Muliaina has some sympathy for the two New Zealand sides still going in the Super Rugby competition.

Muliaina says this season with two rounds against the other New Zealand franchises was particularly tough.

Muliaina has just completed a two-day All Black camp in Wellington and he says with the Super Rugby season so long know, it's strange that they're not now in the middle of the international season.

Muliaina says he's sure the All Black coaches will have some strategy to ease the players into international play with the All Blacks first test just two weeks after the Super Rugby final.
