Returning New Zealand All Blacks midfield, Sonny Bill Williams says Fijian Samu Kerevi is the kingpin in the Australia backline.
The two teams meet in the second Bledisloe match on Saturday in Auckland.
Rugby Australia website says Kerevi unfurled his usual numbers in Perth, running for 88 metres, making three clean breaks and beating five defenders, including a memorable bump-off on Beauden Barrett to set up Nic White’s try.
Williams’ strength in the latter part of his 52-Test career has been his defence and he said he’d be well prepared for the Kerevi freight train.

He says any team that plays a side that has a player like Samu in it has to beef up the defence.
Williams says just the way Kerevi played all year, leading line breaks and tackle breaks throughout Super Rugby, his one that the All Blacks have to watch out for this weekend.
The match is at 7.35pm.
