All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has cautioned Wallabies counterpart Michael Cheika to stick to picking his own team for Australia's Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup Test opener.

Cheika last week suggested Hansen faced some interesting selection issues, particularly at five-eighth between Aaron Cruden and Beauden Barrett as well as openside flanker between Sam Cane and Ardie Savea.

"It's good of the Australian coach to start picking our team. I'd say he's got enough problems of his own probably," Hansen said as his side arrived in Sydney on Sunday.
