Deans says Wallabies will take different approach

5:50 pm on 4 August 2011

The Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has named an unchanged starting line-up from the team that beat South Africa two weeks ago for the Saturday night's test against the All Blacks, but there are three changes on the bench where winger Lachie Turner replaces loose forward Matt Hodgson.

Deans says that's because for the South Africans, it's physicality first, second and third whereas the All Blacks play the game wider and faster, so extra speed and backline resources are needed.

And Deans isn't reading much into the seven changes to the All Black side for the Eden Park clash.
