Wallabies keen to take on Sonny Bill

5:56 am on 28 October 2010

The Bledisloe Cup teams for Saturday night's test in Hong Kong will be declared later today and the Wallabies say they won't be disappointed if Sonny Bill Williams gets an early hit-out on tour.

The desperate Wallabies, facing an 11th straight loss to the All Blacks believe the former league star could be given a chance to stamp his credentials for the UK and Ireland leg of the tour.

Assistant coach Jim Williams says with a tough tour head, the All Blacks need to get Williams on the field sooner rather than later, and he says it would be great for the game to see him make his All Black debut.

The Wallabies say they're focussing on the mental side of their game as they attempt to end their poor run against the All Blacks, and a recent habit of letting leads slip.
