All Blacks’ resolve to be tested by Australia

Newly-named All Blacks captain Ardie Savea said Saturday that his side had the mental resolve to push past its “challenging” preparation for the Bledisloe Cup finale.

The all-conquering New Zealand head into Sunday’s clash having already clinched the three-test series against Australia after victories in Auckland last month.

But their chances of a clean sweep have been made more difficult with the All Blacks only allowed to venture out of their hotel for training sessions due to a Covid-19 outbreak back home.

Despite the unusual circumstances, Savea backed his short-handed team, missing a slew of stars, to remain focused and ready for a desperate Wallabies outfit.
