Wallabies star Samu Kerevi sets sights on New Zealand

Australia centre Samu Kerevi has called on his side to down New Zealand and claim the Bledisloe Cup.

The Wallabies host the All Blacks in the opening round of the Rugby Championship this weekend and travel to New Zealand in Round 2.

Kerevi is desperate to help Australia end a 15-year wait to land the Bledisloe Cup but he accepts they will have to be on top form to overcome the All Blacks.

"We haven't had the Bledisloe in a while, so for the whole group there's that excitement to create history, that excitement to be the first group of men to take that cup back and change the emotions of Australian rugby," Kerevi told Fox Sports.

He added: "Playing the all Blacks, or any of their Super Rugby teams, an 80 minute performance is needed.

"Their skillset is second to none, so for us it's finishing any opportunity they do give us because there will be one or two where opportunities where we can score a try.

"We've got to take it."
