No certainty to take on the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup clash in Melbourne on Thursday night, Wallabies veteran Kurtley Beale says he will be ready if he gets the opportunity.
The 33-year-old rejoined the squad for the Cup campaign, which opens at Marvel Stadium before a return clash at Eden Park on September 24, with Australia looking to win back the trans-Tasman trophy for the first time in 19 years.
Making his Test debut in 2009, Beale said the "burn" to win the Bledisloe still remained.
Australia face the All Blacks at 9.45pm on Thursday.
