All Blacks lock Sam Whitelock is using New Zealand's last Test loss to Australia as motivation to beat the Wallabies in Saturday's Bledisloe Cup clash in Brisbane.
That Test, which was played at the Suncorp Stadium 14 months ago, ended with the Wallabies winning 25-20 which also secured them the Tri-Nations title.
"I played the whole game and it's not nice to lose in the black jersey," Whitelock told Sportal.
"Losing to Aussie in Aussie hurts a bit more.
"A few of the guys in the present squad played that game so we're looking forward to getting over there and trying to right that wrong."
During that loss the All Blacks were hampered by injuries which forced players to chop and change their positions.
"That didn't help at all but a number of things didn't quite go our way," added Whitelock.
"The breakdown was quite slow and they scored a couple of long-range tries which didn't help."
Although the All Blacks won the two previous matches against the Wallabies convincingly Whitelock is not taking them lightly.
"You can never write them off even if they put out their 10th side," he said.
"They've got great depth across the board and will definitely be a challenge."
