Some plain speaking has the Wallabies primed to deliver a much-improved performance in Saturday's return Bledisloe Cup clash with New Zealand in Wellington.

The Wallabies were leaving Australia on Wednesday determined to answer their critics after a 42-8 loss in Sydney last weekend to the All Blacks in their Rugby Championship opener.

"We've had a few home truths and we've gotten through that and it's about turning around and remaining positive and going out there to win this weekend," winger Adam Ashley-Cooper said at Sydney Airport.
