Rona set for Australia debut

All Blacks' rush warning for Wallabies

"Based on information published today New Zealand Rugby believes that it needs to investigate the Aaron Smith matter further and has instructed an independent lawyer to do so".

Hansen opened the news conference by brushing off allegations in the Australian media that scrumhalf Aaron Smith had misled team management over a toilet tryst with a woman a year ago.

They haven't held the Bledisloe Cup since 2003.

To produce such high-octane rugby, Hooper is demanding Australia's bench "unwind the screws" as the All Blacks have proven masters of turning the screws when Test matches are on the line.

Australia, of course, is in a state of crisis in rugby terms.

"They had that the whole week".

"We reviewed that (Lions) series comprehensively, and the management have done a lot on it as well", All Blacks skipper Kieran Read said. "I wouldn't be smart enough to get that sort of stuff organized".

"I'd received death threats, I'd had people ringing my work".

Wales will face three of the four teams set to do battle in the top tournament in the southern hemisphere in three months time with Georgia joining the Wallabies, All Blacks and Springboks in coming to the Principality Stadium in November and December (TICKET DETAILS HERE).

Gard has pleaded not guilty to a charge of public mischief, with police alleging he made a false claim regarding the bug.

That lengthy preparation time and the talent at Cheika's disposal makes the Wallabies a "dangerous beast", said All Blacks coach Steve Hansen yesterday.

The Weekend Herald has put questions about the latest allegations to NZR but they were not answered by deadline.

"He basically approached, they started following each other - then the odd cheeky message came from Smith".

The woman at the centre of the Aaron Smith sex scandal claims the All Blacks player asked her to lie and offered her "hush money".

One man said he was initially "disgusted" by Smith's airport bathroom antics. "I'm also sorry to my team mates, NZRU and the New Zealand fans".

Last year: 2016 will go down as the year the All Blacks rewrote history in this competition as they won all six of their matches with bonus points and had the tournament in the bag with two matches left to play.

"We just think Liam's going to bring some real energy to the game", Hansen added.

"The third thing that makes the really risky is their desire to try to help Australian rugby and at the moment it has a bit of a cloud over it and they haven't won the Bledisloe in a long time".

"He's in a great space in that he knows he's dealt with this issue and done the things he needed to do around this".

Rona has played at outside-centre for most of the Super Rugby campaign and has spent just one game on the wing for the Force.

Smith's partner Voykovich stayed loyal to the All Black following the incident, despite the ongoing relationship going on behind her back.
