Kurtley Beale could be the key to unlocking the best of Samu Kerevi come Bledisloe Cup time, with the latter labelling him, the "X factor" that the Wallabies missed in June.

Kerevi's 2016 Wallabies debut came at a time when Beale was out injured, prior to his departure for Wasps.

Kerevi says that Kurtley is an exceptional player with an exceptional rugby brain and they have been doing a lot of opposed stuff with the boys and trying different combinations in the centres.

He adds that he knows he can bring that X factor to the backline and then they have guys like Israel Folau out back, Tevita Kuridrani and Henry Speight out wide that can finish off amazing tries.

Kerevi says the squad was happy to be past the fitness aspect of Bledisloe Cup preparations, as the team starts to hone in on how they will go about conquering the all powerful, all conquering All Blacks.

The Wallabies will host the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship Opener at 10pm next Saturday in Sydney.
