Fit and hungry Wallabies ready for ABs

NZN 14/08/2016

Flogged by coach Michael Cheika at training, the game-hungry Wallabies insist they're ready to tackle the more match-hardened All Blacks in next Saturday's Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup opener.

Most of the Wallabies will not have played for five weeks heading into the match at Sydney's ANZ Stadium, while the majority of the New Zealanders were involved in Super Rugby until two weekends ago.

"'Cheik' has been working us up and down hills, we've been running round bashing each other a little bit, so we'll be in good stead, physically we're fine we're good to go," Wallabies flanker Michael Hooper said on Sunday.
