Wallabie coach expecting All Blacks to step up another notch

6:14 am on 28 July 2008

The Wallabies coach Robbie Deans knows the All Blacks will be hurting after their 34-19 loss, and will respond at Auckland's Eden park this weekend.

The Wallabies pressured the All Blacks into a somewhat unstructured game as they scored one of their biggest ever wins over New Zealand.

Deans says they've probably created a rod for their backs and the result will steel the All Blacks:

"It'll be a different contest we'll look at the detail of this one and we'll second guess each other I guess in terms of what that will involve but just the context of being in Auckland the All Blacks won't want to go down again, you've got Richie re-entering the fold it's going to be another notch up again it's going to be a good encounter"
