The packs are similar to those that played the three tests at the back end of 2016 and it was the Kiwi's pack that was blown apart. I was expecting much better from their pack but they were comfortably outplayed. JWH was particularly unimpressive. Moreover, in Australia's favour is that Papaali will be available this time.

Of course there is no way they will select Teddy or Nofo but this is the team I would select if I was the selector, which I am not.
