Wallabies keen on going head to head with SBW

8:23 am on 28 October 2010

The teams for Saturday night's Bledisloe Cup rugby test test in Hong Kong will be named later today and the Wallabies assistant coach Jim Williams says they're quietly hoping former league superstar Sonny Bill Williams gets the nod to make his All Blacks debut.

Australia are desperate to loosen the mental hold the New Zealanders have over them with a drought-breaking win in the Bledisloe Cup dead rubber.

Williams says the side's motivation was palpable at training and the Wallabies are licking their lips at a possible showdown with SBW.

The All Blacks have already wrapped up the series 3-nil.
