Welcome to live updates of the second Bledisloe Cup test. Kickoff is around 7.35pm at Eden Park. After last weekend's tryless 12-12 draw in wet Sydney conditions it's been a very nice sunny day in the City of Sails. Spring is here. Which should mean running rugby and hopefully tries.
I'm Cameron McMillan and I'm filling in for Steven Holloway tonight.
Steven is with the rest of the Glenfield Rovers side celebrating the Northern Premier League title which they wrapped up last weekend. He also scored twice today against Eastern Suburbs.
Feel free to post a comment now and during the game. Would love to hear where you are tuning in from. Though please be patient during the game. We get plenty of comments and can't go through all of them.
Hopefully we are in for a cracking test tonight. On the line of course is the Bledisloe Cup, which has been safely in the All Blacks' hands since they claimed it back at Eden Park in 2003. Also is the impressive record at Eden Park. The All Blacks haven't lost to the Wallabies at the ground since 1986 and haven't lost a test there since 1994. Amazing record.
There's also Rugby Championship points of the line. The draw last week meant the Springboks got a jump on both the Wallabies and All Blacks after a tight win over the Pumas.
Here's a great highlights video. It's called All Blacks smashing Australia.
Here's the highlights from last weekend's 12-12 draw.
Looking at the two sides, the Wallabies are unchanged with Kurtley Beale once again starting in the number 10 jumper. He was pretty impressive last week in Sydney. Will the All Blacks look to put more pressure on him tonight?
For the men in black, three changes. Conrad Smith returns for his 79th test after taking last week's game off to be at the birth of his son.
He moves into centre while Ryan Crotty will play beside him after Ma'a Nonu suffered a shoulder injury. Liam Messam will play at six with Jerome Kaino also out with injury.
Malakai Fekitoa, who started last week, is on the bench.

Ryan Crotty and his impressive beard to start. But how does that beard rank with the best ones in sport?
Looks like Crotty's beard has a long way to go.
Not far away from kickoff. The All Blacks and Wallabies are both out there warming up.
Maybe it's the fact they don't have Quade Cooper or James O'Connor but that seems like a very likeable Australian lineup. Gone are the days like we saw in the 2011 World Cup when these was genuine dislike between these two sides.
The Wallabies are out on the field. A great night for rugby in Auckland today.
Here come the All Blacks. A big cheer from the crowd as Richie McCaw leads them out past the Bledisloe Cup and the Rugby Championship cup.
First up the national anthems.
Advance Australia Fair
'Our home is girt by sea'
Now the New Zealand anthem. God Defend New Zealand.
Great anthem that. Now get ready for the haka.
