Sydney – Australia can still challenge the All Blacks this season despite the nation’s abysmal record against New Zealand teams in Super Rugby, Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has said.The five Australian sides have lost all 17 Super Rugby matches against their New Zealand counterparts and chances to break the drought are fast running out.
“I can understand why people might think it’s all doom and gloom – a hundred per cent,” Cheika said in comments published by The Australian newspaper on Wednesday.But it’s not from my perspective.”I know the Super Rugby form from our teams hasn’t been brilliant. No one can argue with that, but there’s been some good performances.
“We’ve been watching players individually in detail, not just the established guys but the new ones too, and there’s plenty to like.”Cheika led the Waratahs to the Super Rugby title in 2014 but it has been downhill for the Australian conference since, as New Zealand has gone from strength to strength.Australia’s teams managed only three wins against New Zealand opponents in Super Rugby last year, which preceded the Wallabies’ 3-0 thrashing by the All Blacks in the annual Bledisloe Cup series.
New Zealand’s dominance has raised grave concerns about the state of the game in Australia, where Super Rugby coaches have backed calls for a national conclave to help halt the slump at provincial level.The Wallabies were whitewashed 3-0 by Eddie Jones’s England in last year’s June internationals but face more modest opponents next month in Fiji, Scotland and Italy.Cheika said he would use the matches to bed down a new generation of players that would carry through to the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
“We started this last year and copped a bit of grief with our mixed results, about 50 percent (winning record), but with the experience they’ve gained and a little bit of hardship, I think they’ll be better,” he said.
“I know people All Blacks vs Wallabies Live will say ‘yeah, yeah, yeah’, but we’ve got a good bunch of young guys in this (World Cup) cycle. Now it’s all about creating that competition and putting the squeeze on the older, established guys.”Cheika conceded there was a lot of work to be done before the Wallabies face the All Blacks in their Bledisloe Cup opener in Sydney on August 19, also the teams’ first match of the southern hemisphere’s Rugby Championship tournament.
“We have to change a few things, change attitudes and mindsets, but I still believe strongly in the guys we’ve got.”SYDNEY – Australia coach Michael Cheika said his revamp of the Wallabies was “in a good place” on Friday after he named seven uncapped players in his squad for the Rugby Championship opener against New Zealand.
Looking to overhaul the ageing squad that reached the 2015 World Cup final, Cheika handed debuts to 13 players last season with five more blooded in the international window in June.To those could now be added hooker Jordan Uelese, flanker Adam Korczyk and lock Izack Rodda as well as outside backs Izaia Perese, Billy Meakes, Marika Koroibete and Curtis Rona, the latter two bolstering the contingent of rugby league converts.
Cheika said all of them would be contending for spots in the team for the 19 August clash at Sydney’s Olympic Stadium, the first of two meetings in two weeks with the All Blacks to open the southern hemisphere tournament.The squad naming came a few days after flanker Michael Hooper was installed as Wallabies captain in place of Stephen Moore and on Friday Cheika also announced experienced halfbacks Will Genia and Bernard Foley as his vice captains.
“Since the start of 2016, we’ve started turning the list around and I think we’re in a good space with that right now,” Cheika told reporters.“We’ve got a new leadership in now and there’s still a few players coming back to join on the journey for the next couple of years.“But at the same time, the guys that started last year are starting to get into the double digits, the 20s, of test experience, which is essential.
“So any newer players we bring in over the next year or two will just fit into that environment and the standards of the players who are in there.”The chances of the four uncapped backs in the squad making the matchday 23 were lessened by Cheika’s confidence that centre Samu Kerevi and utility Kurtley Beale would be fit after pectoral and hamstring injuries respectively.
Australia’s results have undoubtedly suffered during the rebuilding period with nine losses from 15 matches in 2016 and a shock defeat to Scotland in June.While the first of three Bledisloe Cup tests this year against the world champions might not look like the best environment to introduce players to test rugby, Cheika was satisfied it would not be a gamble.
“There’s no risk, if a guy’s in the squad he’s ready to play,” Cheika added.“There’s only 34 in the squad so there’s a good chance you are going to see one or two of them in there, for sure.”
Forwards – Allan Alaalatoa, Rory Arnold, Adam Coleman, Jack Dempsey, Kane Douglas, Tetera Faulkner, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper (captain), Sekope Kepu, Adam Korczyk, Sean McMahon, Stephen Moore, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Tom Robertson, Izack Rodda, Rob Simmons, Scott Sio, Lopeti Timani, Jordan Uelese.

Tickets for all Qantas Wallabies 2017 Rugby Championship home Test matches and the Bledisloe Cup clash in Brisbane can be purchased here.Wing Julian Savea is the high-profile absentee from the All Blacks Rugby Championship squad named this afternoon.
There is no room for the Hurricanes player, who turned 27 today. Savea, a virtual automatic selection on the left wing since making his test debut in 2012 has this year struggled to re-discover the sort of form which has seen him score 46 tries in 54 tests.He was left on the reserves bench for the Hurricanes’ semifinal defeat by the Lions in Johannesburg.
Another to miss out is Crusaders flanker Matt Todd, outstanding again for his team during their Super Rugby final victory over the Lions at Ellis Park.The big winners in the 33-player squad are Chiefs prop Nepo Laulala, a front-runner to replace the departing Charlie Faumuina after recovering from a knee reconstruction last year, and Hurricanes wing Nehe Milner-Skudder, who is also back in the frame following injury. Chiefs prop Atu Moli has been named as an “apprentice”.
All Blacks vs Wallabies Live Stream head coach Steve Hansen said: “Firstly, we congratulate all players selected for the Investec Rugby Championship, particularly Nepo and Nehe, who we welcome back.Conversely, we commiserate with those who have missed out, particularly Julian Savea and the unlucky Matt Todd, both of whom have made great contributions to the All Blacks jersey and will do so again in the future, I’m sure.”
Damian McKenzie has been named as a replacement for All Blacks vice-captain Ben Smith, who will take an extended break from the game following the first two Bledisloe Cup matches.The All Blacks will play their first test of the championship against the Wallabies in Sydney a week on Saturday, returning to play them in Dunedin a week later.
“For us, it’s case of re-establishing ourselves and building on our good work from last year and during the recent DHL New Zealand Lions series,” Hansen said. “There were some clear things learnt in the Lions series and this is a great chance for us to implement those; to continue to grow our skill execution and the mental side of our game, and develop our leadership and the leadership group.
