The All Blacks say they won't hiding any World Cup tricks up their sleeve as they head off on their northern hemisphere end of year tour.

The All Blacks leave for Hong Kong on Satuday night where they'll play Australia a week later, before heading onto Europe to play England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.

Assistant coach Steve Hansen says they need to try new things on this tour so that they know they'll work come World Cup time.

He says trying to hide things only seems to come back and bite them on the bottom.
