While many have Quade Cooper to blame for the 28 point loss, because of a high shot on All Blacks halfback, Aaron Smith, the Wallabies have a lot more to look forward to in the coming weeks.
Wallabies Coach, Michael Cheika says, it is important the team remains focussed on the Rugby World Cup, after coming off a mammoth loss against the All Blacks, 41-13 at the weekend in Eden Park, New Zealand.
“That’s the game of rugby. You get dusted, you’ve got to pick yourself up. Don’t lose yourself because you lost a game,” he said.
In the hope to bounce back off their poor Bledisloe performance, Cheika has confirmed the return of Rob Horne, Sam Carter and Will Genia.
While a team is yet to be announced for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Cheika will be pressured to look into making changes, particularly in the backline.
