Australia rugby’s number eight Isi Naisarani says he was nervous in his first-ever outing against the New Zealand All Blacks last weekend.
He was on the winning side, as the Wallabies thumped the All Blacks 47-26, but says it was a match like no other he has played so far in his short international career.
“Test rugby is fast, physical and intense but playing against the All Blacks the boys told me it was going to another level. So from the first Test against South Africa and against Argentina but the game last week was a different one for me as it was so physical.”
Naisarani says this week will be a tougher task as the Kiwis will come out with all guns blazing.
“I think they will come hard at us and they will be fired up. They will be physical as well so we have to match them up.”
The second match is at 7.35pm on Saturday in Auckland.
