The All Blacks have the chance to wrap up the Bledisloe Cup for a 19th straight year when they meet the Wallabies at Eden Park in a match that also doubles as the first Rugby Championship Test of the year.
A win or a draw will see the All Blacks keep hold of the Bledisloe Cup, however, the Wallabies are focused on ending their 35-year losing streak at Eden Park and moving the decider to Perth.
The Wallabies have not won the Bledisloe Cup since 2002.
Coach Dave Rennie has included blindside flanker Lachie Swinton and locks Matt Philip in the pack to increase the competitiveness of the Wallabies in the breakdown phases and defensive areas of the game.
He says to beat New Zealand, the Wallabies will have to win the collisions and be clinical for 80 minutes.
All Blacks Head Coach Ian Foster says they are going to face a more committed Australian side tonight and they will need to make sure they match fire with fire.
The All Blacks will face the Wallabies in the second Bledisloe Test at 7.05 tonight.
