Wallabies v All Blacks Cape Town – Wallabies prop Allan Alaalatoa says they’ll need perfection to beat the All Blacks, as much in their mindset as anywhere else.Alaalatoa, along with the rest of the Brumbies contingent, arrived in the Wallabies’ Newcastle camp on Thursday, but that was enough to feel the levels rising, he said.
“I only came in the last two sessions and I felt I was there the whole week. For me physically it was and it was a good test for me mentally,” he told the Australian Rugby Union’s official website.
“When you come down to those moments and you think the training session’s over but you’ve got another fitness drill, it’s just all about pushing yourself mentally and trying to be comfortable in an uncomfortable environment.”
Alaalatoa said the Wallabies would need a near-flawless performance to topple the All Blacks in just under three weeks’ time, and that included owning the psychological aspect of the clash.
“It’s very important for us, especially going up against the All Blacks where you need to be perfect almost to win against them,” he said.
“That mental aspect of the game is really important and I think these training sessions are helping us build towards that, when you’re under fatigue and you try to pick yourself up to go another round and just to push yourself mentally is probably just as important as pushing yourself physically.”
Alaalatoa is one of the leaders of the next generation of Wallabies, shaping as a key pillar in the build-up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup after a breakout Super Rugby season.
Regular starts for the Brumbies and Wallabies have armed him with more confidence heading into another Test camp.
“Last year and the years before I’ve been coming off the bench so to be able to get that consistent starting spot, it’s been a huge experience for myself,” he added.“That’s what I truly believe once you get all that game time that’s the only way you’re going to learn and adapt on the run so it’s been good.
“I think when you look around there’s a lot of young players there and we are looking to build towards that campaign.“Obviously first and foremost to make that you have to build in little steps and this Bledisloe’s one of those steps that you need to achieve.”
The forwards battle will be critical in the opening clash and it’s the Brumbies who have provided much of the grunt from that aspect during the Super Rugby season, as well as the experience of playing finals rugby.
Lock Rory Arnold said that intensity would need to be taken up another level for the opening trans-Tasman clash, with Brodie Retallick and Sam Whitelock on the opposite side.
“We know if we want to dominate up front we’ve got to at those blokes, so we’re going to have to be at our best, the second rowers to take those blokes on.”The Wallabies will train in state-based camps until Wednesday, before a revised 33-man squad convenes in Cessnock, in the Hunter Valley.
NEW ZEALAND will appeal World Rugby’s ruling that All Blacks centre Sonny Bill Williams won’t complete a disciplinary suspension in time to play next month’s Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia.
Williams was suspended for four matches after being sent off during the second Test against the British and Irish Lions on July 1 for a dangerous shoulder charge on Lions winger Anthony Watson.He was only the third All Black to be sent off in a Test match and the first in 50 years.
Williams missed the third Test against the Lions, a Super Rugby match for the Blues and will sit out a match for his Counties-Manukau province.
But a World Rugby judicial panel has ruled an All Blacks warm-up match — proposed by New Zealand as the fourth match of Williams’ suspension — is not acceptable.
The panel, which included two former Wallabies, said the match between the All Blacks and the Counties and Taranaki provinces was not “meaningful.”
In a statement on Friday, New Zealand Rugby said it would ask World Rugby’s appeals committee to review the decision which will see Williams complete his suspension on August 20, the day after the Bledisloe Cup Test in Sydney.
“Sonny Bill Williams has appealed the World Rugby judicial committee’s decision not to include the All Blacks match on 11 August (a split game of 40 minutes each against Counties-Manukau and Taranaki) in the four-week suspension given to Williams following a hearing into the red card he received in the second Test against the touring British & Irish Lions,” the statement said. “As the matter will now be decided by an appeal committee, no further comment will be made at this time.”
The Wallabies must successfully target dynamic All Blacks second rowers Brodie Retallick and Sam Whitelock when they attempt to turn their Bledisloe Cup fortunes around, says Australian backrower Rory Arnold.
The formidable duo of Retallick and Whitelock has been one of the great strengths of the world champion All Blacks’ forward machine in recent years and both are used to winning against the Wallabies.
Whitelock has tasted defeat just three times in 20 games Tests against Australia and Retallick once in 15.
Rising Wallabies lock Rory Arnold said getting an edge over the duo was key for his team.
“They’ve been world-class locks now for a number of years, so if we want to dominate up front we know we’ve got to go at those blokes,” said Arnold. “We’re going to have to be at our best, the second-rowers, to take those blokes on.”
While Whitelock and Retallick have been a constant force for New Zealand, Australia have chopped and changed their second-row combinations since the 2015 World Cup final against the All Blacks.
Coach Michael Cheika used five starting second-row combinations in the first five Tests of 2016 and seven in total across the season as six different locks got an opportunity in the run-on side.
In the June Tests, Cheika started with Adam Coleman and Sam Carter and then brought in Arnold for the last match.
“He sort of swapped and changed a fair bit last year, so I’m not sure how he’s going to go this year with those second-row spots,” Arnold said.
Arnold said he felt a little bit more comfortable in the international environment than in his first season at that level last year. source
