"Quite rare, really, but it's actually not a long-term injury at all", Wallabies coach Michael Cheika told reporters at Sydney airport on Sunday ahead of the team's flight to Auckland.

Australia, who were frustrated by referee calls all afternoon, then lost full-back Israel Folau to a possible ankle injury as Naholo dismantled their defence, twice.

Folau fell awkwardly after an aerial contest during the second half of the 38-13 loss at Sydney's Olympic stadium and hobbled off the ground.

Maddocks scored Australia's only try on his Test debut after replacing winger Dane Haylett-Petty for the final 25 minutes on Saturday night and Cheika said he'd have no hesitation starting the 22-year-old should Folau be ruled out.

The Wallabies must win at Eden park for the first time since 1986 to have any chance of reclaiming the Bledisloe Cup.

"It's about being on, us staying on in the mind all the time around what we need to bring".

In a chilling warning to the Wallabies, coach Steve Hansen insisted the All Blacks still had plenty of improvement to come.

"We'd be silly to think they haven't got another player who's going to step in and wear the jersey with pride and urgency".
