- Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie named an unchanged line-up Tuesday for this week's return clash with the All Blacks after ending the world champions' 17-match winning streak last weekend.

McKenzie kept faith with his players after Saturday's 12-12 draw in Sydney -- the opening game of both the Rugby Championship and the trans-Tasman Bledisloe Cup.

Australia have not won at Auckland's Eden Park for 28 years.

"We were impressed with the pressure we were able to apply in the opening Test and, despite some errors, were pleased with the intent of the group to continue attacking despite the poor weather conditions," McKenzie said.

"I imagine both teams are excited by the prospect of a dry evening in Auckland on Saturday night, which will have an influence on the way the game is played.

"For us, we know we need to be more clinical in certain areas."
