McCaw laughs off Deans' attack on All Blacks scrum

11:38 am on 24 November 2010

Sonny Bill Williams looks set to return to the All Blacks starting line-up to face Wales in Cardiff on Sunday morning while captain Richie McCaw has scoffed at suggestions by Wallabies coach Robbie Deans that the All Blacks don't scrum.

Sonny Bill lined up at second five inside Conrad Smith in what looks to be the All Blacks starting fifteen with Isaia Toeava on the wing in place of Cory Jane and hooker Keven Mealamu and lock Brad Thorn packing down in the tight five.

McCaw is almost certain to captain the team as they strive to complete their third grand slam in five years and the number seven laughed off comments by the Wallabies coach criticising the All Blacks scrum.

Both teams will be announced tomorrow night.
