Front row battle key at Cake Tin

Fresh from conquering the Springboks pack, Wallabies prop Benn Robinson says Australia face a far more difficult task at scrum time against the All Blacks in the final Tri-Nations Test in Wellington on Saturday night.

Robinson laid further claim to the title of world's best loose-head when he repeatedly showed up Springboks captain and scrummaging opponent John Smit during the Wallabies' 21-6 victory over the Tri-Nations champions a fortnight ago.

Even after such a dominant performance in Brisbane, Robinson says the Wallabies front row is preparing for a fiercer challenge against the hulking All Blacks, who lead the four match Bledisloe series 2-0.

The All Blacks had the better of the Wallabies at scrum time during the last Bledisloe Test in Sydney, which Australia lost 19-18.
