Wallabies prop Allan Alaalatoa says they will need mental perfection to beat the All Blacks next Saturday.

Alaalatoa says the Wallabies would need a near‑flawless performance to topple the All Blacks and that included owning the psychological aspect of the clash.

Lock Rory Arnold also says that intensity would need to be taken up another level for the opening trans‑Tasman clash, with Brodie Retallick and Sam Whitelock on the opposite side.

Tevita Kuridrani, Henry Speight, Marika Koroibete and Samu Kerevi have been included in the 34‑man Wallabies squad for the Bledisloe Cup opener against the All Blacks.

Eto Nabuli and Sefa Naivalu have missed selection due to injury.

The Wallabies have not held the Bledisloe Cup since 2002 and their last victory over the All Blacks was in Sydney in 2015.

They play the first Bledisloe Cup match against the All Blacks on the 19th of this month.
