All Blacks attack focused

9:02 am on 14 June 2014

The All Blacks first-five Aaron Cruden concedes New Zealand kicked away too much possession in last weekend's lucky escape in Auckland and he's promising a more attack minded men in black for the second Test against England in Dunedin.

Coach Steven Hansen described the Eden Park performance as one of the worst he's been involved with, adding that if he picked the team for the second test on form he'd have to drop all of the first Test's players.

Cruden, who concedes his personal performance was sub par, says the All Blacks will give their attacking weapons more opportunities with the ball in hand.

The Test in Dunedin has sold out.
