Former All Blacks coach John Hart is calling for an overhaul of the All Blacks front row, saying they were completely outplayed by the Wallabies big men in the Perth Bledisloe Cup boilover.

Hart said Owen Franks and Joe Moody should be bench props at best in this week's return clash in Auckland after the veteran starters fell short of expectations in the 47‑26 loss.

Winger Ben Smith was also in the firing line after another subdued outing, with Hart advocating for Beauden Barrett to remain starting fullback because of his greater verve.

Hart told Radio Sport New Zealand's problems started up front, where centurion Franks and long‑time Crusaders teammate Moody managed just a single run between them.
