Deans kept the faith

The Wallabies coach Robbie Deans says he had no doubt winger James O'Connor would successfully convert his own try to end a 10-Test losing streak to the All Blacks.

The Wallabies won 26-24 in Hong Kong on Saturday night with O'Connor scoring his try in injury time and then kicking the winning conversion.

O'Connor took over the kicking duties in the second half as the Australian goal kickers finished the match with a success rate of just three from eight.

O'Connor says he's been doing plenty of goal kicking practice.
