New Zealand flank Sam Cane expects Australia to bounce back this
weekend following the heavy loss they suffered in Sydney last Saturday.
The backrow, who was part of the side that
beat the Wallabies 42-8 in the Rugby Championship opener, was keen to keep a
lid on their win.
"Any team that's wounded typically
bounces back a lot stronger and I wouldn't expect anything less from the
Aussies. They will come here with a real steely determination to prove a point
to themselves and their media who have been a bit rough on them," he told
the All Blacks website.
"The best thing we can do is prepare
well and go out there and try and put in a good one again. They will be a lot
better, we know that."
Another win on Saturday would see New
Zealand keep their hands on the Bledisloe Cup for yet another year, something
which is driving Cane.
"We are certainly not lacking
motivation because if we get this one right we get to have a sip out of the
Bledisloe and that is something pretty special. That's driving us pretty strongly,"
he said, with the flanker having made nine carries and 10 tackles over the
