Retallick relishes all kinds of battles with the Wallabies

Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick will go down as arguably the greatest second-row pairing in the history of test rugby when they hang up their boots.

Retallick says he relishes all kinds of battles with the Wallabies - mental, physical, you name it.

Whitelock, New Zealand’s second most capped player in history, and Retallick, who will feature in his 97th test this week, have been synonymous with All Blacks success for more than a decade.

World Cup winners in 2015, they’ve never known life without the Bledisloe Cup. It’s a bond as tight off the field as it is on it.

Brodie Retallick says there’s been a lot of people that have come and gone in the 10 years that he’s been in the All Blacks and said for Whitelock to be here 13 years, you can’t take for granted how much work goes into that.

The All Blacks will take on the Wallabies at Marvel Stadium at 9.45pm tonight.
