Retallick's sobering warning

Retallick, who has formed arguably one of the world's most feared locking partnerships with Sam Whitelock over the last five years, wasn't thrilled with the way the All Blacks lineouts functioned during the 1-1 series draw against the British and Irish Lions.

At 2.04m there aren't too many people that Retallick has to look up to, but the Wallabies' Rory Arnold, who will partner Adam Coleman in the boiler room, is 4cm taller than the Kiwi.

Wallabies to target Retallick and Whitelock

The formidable duo of Retallick and Whitelock has been one of the great strengths of the world champion All Blacks' forward machine in recent years and both are used to winning against the Wallabies.

Whitelock has tasted defeat just three times in 20 games Tests against Australia and Retallick once in 15.

Rising Wallabies lock Rory Arnold acknowledged getting an edge over the duo was key for his team.

"They've been world-class locks now for a number of years, so if we want to dominate up front we know we've got to go at those blokes," said Arnold.

Tamanivalu and Retallick join All Blacks

Moala has a serious elbow injury and is heading home, though he doesn't require surgery.

All Blacks second-five Ryan Crotty will miss the next two tests against Italy in Rome and Ireland in Dublin with a hamstring strain he picked up during the historic Chicago defeat.

Crotty should be available for the tour-ending test against France in Paris.

Seta Tamanivalu has been called into the squad as cover and will join the team in Rome having just played for the Barbarians in London.
