‘Bledisloe win will show we have improved’ – Hooper
Wallabies captain Michael Hooper believes a win over the All Blacks in Saturday’s Bledisloe Cup Test in Brisbane will show that they have improved in 2017.
Hooper said victory for his side would prove that they’ve made major strides since a disastrous Sydney opener and August’s Dunedin heartbreaker.
Public vindication of their progress would do wonders for the code in Australia, but a Bledisloe Test victory would be just as critical internally, for a side still finding its feet.
“I think we have got a greater belief in our game and what we can do and we have also seen a lot of players step through and step up within that time as well,” Hooper told the Australian Rugby Union’s official website.
“I’m a big believer in what this team can do and it come downs to Saturday.”
