Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has singled out new All Blacks number six Ardie Savea as the danger man, heading into tomorrow night's first Bledisloe Cup Test in Perth.

Savea will start on the blind side of the scrum for the first time in his Test career, named alongside Sam Cane and captain Kieran Read in the loose forward trio.

Easily the standout player in Super Rugby this year for the Hurricanes, Savea's inclusion at number six comes at a vital time for the All Blacks, without a specialist blindside flanker in the squad, with Luke Jacobson injured and Shannon Frizell dropped.
