Superb conditions in Auckland for this encounter - slightly overcast, but no sign of rain, relatively still conditions and the crowd is pouring into the stadium.

All Blacks captain Sam Cane has won the toss and his team will play right to left (east to west?) for the first half. Aussies will kick off.


Kia ora, good afternoon and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the second Bledisloe Cup test match between New Zealand and Australia from 'Coopers Catch Park' (aka Eden Park) in Auckland.

Last weekend, both teams played out a pulsating 16-16 draw in Wellington, but this weekend the stakes are even higher, with the game being played at the All Blacks fortress. 

The All Blacks have not lost a match at Eden Park since France in 1994 - a stretch of 43 consecutive test matches that includes the 2011 World Cup final - while the Wallabies haven't won at the Auckland venue since 1986.

To protect their record, the All Blacks have made five changes to their starting XV, with hooker Dane Coles, lock Tupou Vaa'i, wing Caleb Clarke, centre Anton Lienert-Brown and fullback Beauden Barrett all coming into the starting side. 

Rieko Ioane has been ruled out of the match with a hamstring injury and has been replaced on the bench by Peter Umaga-Jensen.

All Blacks made mistake naming Foster as coach - Henry

Sir Graham Henry says NZ Rugby made a mistake appointing Ian Foster as All Blacks coach and allowing Dave Rennie to coach the Wallabies.

Rennie was appointed Wallabies coach last November, a month before Foster was confirmed as Steve Hansen's successor with the All Blacks.

In their first test in charge of their new teams, the All Blacks and Wallabies played out a 16-16 draw at Wellington's Sky Stadium. 

Foster signed a two-year deal as All Blacks coach, after beating out Crusaders boss Scott Robertson for the job. 

Speaking at the Wairarapa Bush Rugby Sports Award function, Sir Graham - a World Cup-winning All Blacks coach - has admitted it's too early to say whether Foster is up to the job, but feels NZ Rugby should have done more to keep coaches like Rennie in New Zealand.

Sir Graham's comments are surprising, as he was on the selection panel that appointed Foster as All Blacks coach. 

"Dave Rennie is a fabulous coach, no doubt," he says. "New Zealand Rugby c**ked that up.

"They should have been connecting with Dave and [Japan coach] Jamie Joseph and other people around the world to keep them involved in New Zealand Rugby.

"The All Blacks hadn't played for a long time and they looked like it too. They were off the pace, but I think at Eden Park, they'll be chomping at the bit and I think they'll do the job.

"I hope for Fozzie's sake that happens... circumstantial, with the virus and not being able to play, and all those bits and pieces. I've avoided the question."

Asked to choose between Rennie and Foster, Sir Graham picked the Wallabies boss. 

"Well, there you go, aye," he quips. "I talked in the media about this before and [was] asked who should coach the All Blacks, and I was very vocal about Rennie.

"But Dave Rennie went to Glasgow, and went and coached there, after winning two Super titles with the Chiefs.

"I think he's got it all and no disrespect to Fozzie, no disrespect, and New Zealand Rugby - this is some time ago, not recently - were meant to keep in contact with players and coaches who had a big influence with professional rugby in this country and went overseas, and they didn't do that.

"If they had done that with Dave Rennie, he would have applied for the All Black job.

"I think we stuffed up, quite frankly, because he is a quality person and a quality coach, and you've seen it straight away with the Wallabies. They will play for him and that's no disrespect to Fozzie, that's just circumstantial, so I've answered the question."
