ABs trying to keep feet on ground

7:18 am on 7 August 2011

The All Blacks are trying to kill off any talk of World Cup favouritism after retaining the Bledisloe Cup in Saturday night's comprehensive 30-14 victory over Australia at Eden Park.

New Zealand head coach Graham Henry says the win doesn't make his side favourites for the World Cup.

Henry says the Cup's very important and the team's delighted to have kept it and played well, but it doesn't mean the All Blacks have landed a pyschological blow to the Wallabies.
