But rush defence comes with risk and the rebuilding Wallabies could leave gaps to be exploited if not consistently accurate, allowing their bid to lift the Bledisloe Cup for the first time since 2002 to unravel at the first hurdle.
New Zealand's security consultant Adrian Gard is facing a charge of making a false statement to police, pleading not guilty.
The record low Bledisloe attendance for ANZ Stadium is 65,238 that endured last year's demoralising 42-8 loss for the Wallabies, while the average crowd since the reconfiguration of the Olympic venue in 2001 is 76,219.

The Smith controversy has also intruded into the All Blacks' match preparation.

"The way they had portrayed me was being as an absolute ho - a woman that had targeted this guy at the airport and forced myself on him and I'd acted in such a way that they didn't even want their players around me anymore", she said.

The IFRC chief told reporters in Geneva that "what they are facing today is way beyond the capacity of the government alone". An unofficial morgue toll had previously put the toll at around 400 dead, but the figure had not been officially confirmed.
"Obviously the incident happened previous year".
"There's nothing more that I can add to that but if there is anything else that needs to be spoken about, it will come from the New Zealand Rugby Union themselves".
