Elsom anticipates much different test against the All Blacks

The Wallabies skipper Rocky Elsom is anticipating a much different encounter from his team's two previous tri-nations outings when they play the All Blacks in Sydney on Saturday night.

After two high-scoring, against the Springboks in South Africa, Elsom says the major difference is New Zealand's ability to slow the ball at the breakdown.

He says both games flow in South Africa because the contest was a lot faster at the breakdown.

Elsom claims the Wallabies' nine-Test losing streak against the All Blacks isn't playing on their minds ahead of the test.
