The anthems are done and then Liam Messam leads the All Blacks during a stirring version of the Kama Te haka.

Australia have named Matt Toomua at inside centre while Ben McCalman starts at eight for this encounter. Brumbies fly-half Toomua replaces injured team-mate Christian Lealiifano in the number 12 jersey while an eye injury to Scott Fardy has forced a reshuffle among the loose forwards, with McCalman earning a start in the back-row and Ben Mowen moving to the blindside flank. The Test will see Will Genia become only the third Wallaby scrum-half to reach the 50-game milestone behind George Gregan and Nick Farr-Jones. At the other end of the career spectrum, winger Peter Betham will make his debut in one of four changes to the team that started against Argentina after midweek injuries to fellow outside backs Joe Tomane and Chris Feauai-Sautia. There are two changes on the bench, with Dave Dennis and Mike Harris called into the squad.

New Zealand suffered a double blow when captain Richie McCaw and wing Cory Jane were ruled out after being in the starting Xv initially. McCaw has been ruled out with a calf strain while Jane has a hamstring injury. In McCaw's absence Sam Cane will wear the number seven jersey while number eight Kieran Read will captain the All Blacks. Jane has been replaced by Charles Piutau while Steven Luatua take's Cane's place on the replacements bench. IN other changes fom their last match against the Springboks in Johannesburg two weeks ago, Ben Smith moves from the wing to outside centre, taking over from Conrad Smith, who is on an extended break, Lock Jeremy Thrush is given his first start in the second row as Brodie Retallick drops to the bench vwhile Keven Mealamu starts at hooker with Andrew Hore dropping out of the squad. The only other change on the bench sees Tom Taylor come in as one of the back reserves.
