1:59 Sean Fitzpatrick reveals his All Blacks to watch

As play continued at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Saturday night, Australia No 8 Pocock's priority was to check on the wellbeing of Crotty who was felled by friendly fire as the two New Zealand midfielders went in for a tackle.

Crotty was knocked out after making accidental contact with debutant team-mate Jack Goodhue as the All Blacks defeated the Wallabies 38-13 in Sydney.

The Wallabies have not beaten the All Blacks at Eden Park since 1986, and defeat again on Saturday will ensure New Zealand keeps the Bledisloe for a 16th successive year.

Last year Australia produced a stunning turnaround to almost win in Dunedin before a late try sealed it for the All Blacks, but Wallabies coach Michael Cheika doesn't want to use that for motivation.

"This is not what people are going to want to hear the day after the game but I know we're making improvements in the team", Cheika said before the Wallabies flew to Auckland on Sunday.

"But it's actually not a long-term injury at all, just a lot of swelling."

Cheika could also opt for inside centre Kurtley Beale to switch to fullback, where he has plenty of experience, and promote Matt Toomua from the reserves to the number 12 jersey.

Australia struck back with a try from newcomer Jack Maddocks, who had missed a similar chance minutes earlier.

"So he played tonight, got a few touches and got a try as well".

"I would imagine he would be there (but) we've also got Tom Banks, who's an out-and-out fullback so we'll see where we end up", Cheika said. "We should have kept doing what we need to do".

Hooper lamented his side's inability to capitalise on a promising start as the All Blacks made a sluggish, error-prone beginning.

"We stifled their attack in the first half and they spilt a bit of ball".

Not for the first time he bemoaned a lack of relentlessness and mental toughness from his Wallabies as they let a 6-5 halftime advantage slip badly.

Steve Hansen's side notched a record first-half points tally against the Wallabies in the corresponding fixture past year, and at the same venue on Saturday, scored a record second-half total against them.

"It was crucial", he said. "I think the resilience within the boys was awesome".

Cheika refused to accept the visit to Auckland was daunting, despite his side's awful record at Eden Park against the All Blacks and the fact they are one-nil down in a three-test series.

"We'll stay there and set up camp and stay for the week and train".

"It concerns us, definitely", All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said.

"We've got a plan, we've spoken about that plan already", Hooper said, without revealing any details of said plan.

"The first half was like two big bulls in the ring head-butting each other."
