Swatting aside Steve Hansen's latest barb, the Wallabies flew out for New Zealand on Thursday insisting there was no psychological scarring heading to the All Blacks's burial ground for Saturday's must-win Bledisloe Cup Test.
The Wallabies have read and heard all week about how no Australian team has won at Eden Park since 1986, but fullback Israel Folau says it's no issue.
While veteran centre and vice-captain Adam Ashley-Cooper has tasted bitter Test defeat six times at the Auckland fortress, and back-rower Wycliff Palu has come up short there on three occasions and prop Sekope Kepu twice, half of Australia's starting XV haven't experienced losing to the world champions at Eden Park.
"It's probably a good thing," Folau said at Sydney Airport.
"The boys have had a taste of how they are last week and we know it's going to be a different sort of atmosphere at Eden Park with obviously a lot of All Blacks fans there."
The All Blacks's dominance at Eden Park is so well documented that the Wallabies haven't even addressed it this week.
Eden Park aside, the Wallabies have lost their past 16 Tests against their trans-Tasman rivals in New Zealand since 2001.
Hansen on Thursday questioned how much more the Wallabies could lift after last Saturday's sapping 12-12 draw at ANZ Stadium, but Folau promised the All Blacks coach there remained vast room for improvement.
"We obviously reviewed the game and opportunities that we missed," Folau said.
"We want to try and capitalise on the things that present themselves on the weekend . . . so we're confident going over there to try and get the job done." - AAP
