New Zealand recorded their biggest winning margin over Australia as a 43-5 thrashing secured another Bledisloe Cup series triumph and a fine start to the Tri Nations.

The All Blacks suffered a chastening 47-26 loss in their previous match on Australian soil last August, but ensured there was no repeat in Sydney as they followed up their 27-7 Eden Park victory earlier this month in style.

Karl Tu'inukuafe, Richie Mo'unga (2) and Dane Coles touched down in the first half at ANZ Stadium, where a socially distanced crowd witnessed a masterclass from Ian Foster's side.

Debutant Noah Lolesio hit back in a much-improved second-half showing from Australia, but New Zealand rarely looked anything other than comfortable and added gloss through Rieko Ioane and Jordie Barrett, with Mo'unga's conversion earning his country a slice of history.

With the Bledisloe Cup now beyond their grasp, Dave Rennie's men will look to bounce back against the same opponents in Brisbane next week to kickstart their Tri Nations campaign.

The Wallabies endured an early setback, Filipo Daugunu seeing yellow for a dangerous tackle on the airborne Caleb Clarke.

Foster's charges initially capitalised as Tu'inukuafe crashed over for his first international try, but Jordie Barrett soon followed fellow number 14 Daugunu into the sin bin for leading with his forearm on Dane Haylett-Petty.

The visitors had two tries ruled out by the TMO, one for grounding and the other for being in touch, before Mo'unga's brace of fine solo scores eased their frustrations.

Coles, earlier denied by the TMO, drove over from a lineout to effectively put the game to bed before the break.

Australia got off the mark a minute after the interval as Lolesio seized on a sharp pass inside to dart over the line, though the All Blacks soon reasserted their authority to seal a record win over their rivals.

Mo'unga kicked a penalty and added the extras to tries from Ioane and Barrett, the second of those conversions ensuring New Zealand's 43-6 win over Australia in 1996 was eclipsed.

New Zealand will look to wrap up another Bledisloe Cup series triumph and make a strong start to the Tri Nations when they face fierce rivals Australia in Sydney on Saturday.

The All Blacks cruised to a 27-7 victory over the Wallabies at Eden Park to take a 1-0 lead after the first match ended in a 16-16 draw.

New Zealand have dominated the rivalry in recent times, and you have to go back to 2002 for the last time their trans-Tasman rivals lifted the famous trophy.

While Australia are unable to end that wait this weekend, they could draw first blood in the opening Tri Nations Test and set up a Bledisloe Cup decider next week in Brisbane.

South Africa's withdrawal from the Rugby Championship leaves just Australia, New Zealand and Argentina to battle it out in a rebranded Tri Nations.

With the Pumas having to wait until November 14 for their opening contest with the All Blacks, we use Opta facts to preview another almighty battle at ANZ Stadium.

Australia v New Zealand

- New Zealand have lost only one of their last seven Tests against Australia (W5, D1); however, that single defeat did come in their last meeting on Australian soil, going down 47-26 in Perth last August.

- The All Blacks have won seven of the most recent nine Tests between the two sides at ANZ Stadium, including their last three. They have averaged 44.67 points per game in that three-match run.

- Australia have won four of their last five Tests at home, losing one. They have been victorious in the last three and the last time they enjoyed a longer winning run on home soil was a four-match span from September 2013 to June 2014.

- New Zealand have scored 70 tries at ANZ Stadium, their second-most at any Test ground outside New Zealand. They need two more to surpass their tally of 71 at the SCG.

- Marika Koroibete has scored 13 tries since making his Test debut in September 2017, the most of any Australia player in that time; New Zealand's Rieko Ioane (18) and South Africa's Makazole Mapimpi (14) are the only southern hemisphere tier one players with more in that period.

- Beauden Barrett needs one more try for the outright record of most in Tests against Australia by any player. He is currently level on 11 with Richie McCaw and Ma'a Nonu and has blanked in his last two Tests against the Wallabies.

Cameron Green could be set to make his Australia debut after being named in the ODI and Twenty20 squads to face India.

The talented all-rounder, 21, was included in an 18-man squad named on Thursday.

Green is the leading run-scorer in this season's Sheffield Shield with 264 at an average of 132 for Western Australia, while he averages 27.83 with the bat and 34.42 with the ball in nine domestic 50-over matches.

Moises Henriques has also been recalled, while Mitchell Marsh has missed out after dealing with an ankle injury.

"Moises is a tremendous cricketer with loads of experience and is a great person to have around the group," Australia national selector Trevor Hohns said.

"His form was extremely impressive in leading the [Sydney] Sixers to the BBL title last summer and he has played well at the start of this season.

"Similarly, Cameron's domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer. As a potential player of the future this is an opportunity for him to be part of the squad and build on his experience."

Australia's three-match ODI series against India is set to begin in Sydney on November 27, before the teams do battle in three T20s at the start of December.

Australia: Aaron Finch, Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.

Sam Whitelock has been named to return for the All Blacks, while the Wallabies included two debutants in their starting side.

Whitelock has recovered from concussion to return for the Bledisloe Cup and Tri Nations Series clash in Sydney on Saturday.

The lock's return is one of three changes to the starting XV for New Zealand.

While Whitelock replaces Tupou Vaa'i, Karl Tu'inukuafe is in for Joe Moody and Hoskins Sotutu takes Ardie Savea's place.

The All Blacks lead the four-game Bledisloe Cup series 1-0 as they seek to keep a trophy they have held since 2003.

"It's the third Test of a four-Test series and the Bledisloe Cup is on the line," All Blacks head coach Ian Foster said.

"It's a real chance for us to come into their home patch, a place which they take a lot of pride in playing and for a trophy which means a lot to them, and we need to show them how much it means to us. 

"The chance to go and win a trophy that's precious to us is exciting."

Australia have named two debutants – Noah Lolesio and Irae Simone – in their starting side, with James O'Connor out with a knee injury.

Allan Alaalatoa, Jordan Petaia and Dane Haylett-Petty will also start, while debutants Fraser McReight and Tate McDermott are among the replacements.

"It's really exciting to be able to name four more debutants in the squad this week," Australia coach Dave Rennie said.

"Noah and Irae have played a lot of footy together and we have no doubt they're ready to take the step up to Test rugby. Tate and Fraser have had big Super Rugby seasons and have impressed in training over the past month.

"It's an especially significant night for us with the chance to represent and celebrate our First Nations people by wearing the Indigenous jersey on home soil in front of our Wallabies family.

"We know New Zealand will pose another tough challenge but we've prepared well and will be ready to go on Saturday night."

Australia: Dane Haylett-Petty, Filipo Daugunu, Jordan Petaia, Irae Simone, Marika Koroibete, Noah Lolesio, Nic White; James Slipper, Brandon Paenga-Amosa, Allan Alaalatoa, Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, Matt Philip, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper, Harry Wilson.
Replacements: Jordan Uelese, Scott Sio, Taniela Tupou, Rob Simmons, Fraser McReight, Tate McDermott, Reece Hodge, Hunter Paisami.

New Zealand: Beauden Barrett, Jordie Barrett, Anton Lienert-Brown, Jack Goodhue, Caleb Clarke, Richie Mo'unga, Aaron Smith; Karl Tu'inukuafe, Dane Coles, Ofa Tuungafasi, Patrick Tuipulotu, Samuel Whitelock, Shannon Frizell, Sam Cane, Hoskins Sotutu.
Replacements: Codie Taylor, Alex Hodgman, Tyrel Lomax, Scott Barrett, Dalton Papalii, TJ Perenara, Ngani Laumape, Rieko Ioane.

Legendary Australia spinner Shane Warne has claimed West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels needs ‘serious help’ after recent posts that denigrated both the bowler himself and England all-rounder, Ben Stokes.

The comments, which were posted to Samuels’ Instagram page, called Stokes a ‘bitch’ and a ‘white boy’ and also made lewd suggestions regarding the player’s wife.  The comments came after Stokes recently revealed his difficult experiences in New Zealand quarantine, which he insisted he would not visit on his worst enemy, 'not even Marlon Samuels'.  Stokes and Samuels have been part of a long-running feud that goes back to 2015 but the level of vitriol caught many by surprise.

Warne and Samuels have also had a fierce rivalry over the years but it’s not clear what the trigger was to involve the former spinner this time around.  In criticising Warne, Samuels brought up an alleged incident involving a girlfriend of the Australian and claimed he was ‘begging jobs in cricket.’

In a terse response, Warne claimed Samuels had no friends at all and that not even his ex-teammates never liked him.  He urged the player to get help.

“I've just been sent what Samuels has posted re @benstokes & I.  It's a very sad situation as he obviously needs serious help - but has no friends at all & not even his ex-teammates like him.  Just because you were an ordinary cricketer - no need to be an ordinary person. Get help son,” Warne said via his Twitter feed.
