Beauden Barrett is experienced enough to spot the danger signs for All Blacks, as they prepare for what could be a game in wet conditions in Sydney on Saturday against Australia. New Zealand are coming off a solid 27-7 win on a sunny afternoon at Auckland’s Eden Park just over a week ago.
In a relaxing climate, Barrett sets off the alarms because it won’t be easy to win like it was done a few days ago. There will be another climateas rains are expected in Sydney. The back analyzed the two games in Kiwi lands and believes that the All Blacks should have a good afternoon to be able to contain their rival: “Sometimes we realized how they put us under immense pressure, particularly that first game in Wellington. “
“Many times in the second game at Eden Park, where a couple of balls did not come out, and we were with our feet back and they were one pass away from putting us under pressure. They are improving and they became a strong team with Dave Rennie as coach. We have a lot of respect for them and for what they are doing, “said the New Zealand back.
The rain brings back memories of Perth 2019. The All Blacks arrived in Australia for the first round of the 2019 Bledisloe Cup after two unconvincing performances against Argentina and South Africa, and many expected them to advance a bit against Michael Cheika’s team but they came back with a 47-26 loss. In this regard, Barrett said there is no point in insisting on such performances, but that they should serve as a “reality bath” for any All Black who believes the Wallabies are not ready to turn the series around after the game at Eden Park.
