Ben Smith is in line for a thorough examination of his wares as a test centre against the Wallabies in tomorrow's Bledisloe Cup test in Dunedin.
Smith takes over the number 13 jersey, playing alongside Ma'a Nonu.
Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie says the pair are untried as a combination and something his side could exploit.
"Maybe there'll be an opportunity for us. We'll see.
"The combination, they've been together since Tuesday, so maybe they'll score more tries. He's a good try scorer, (and) he's a really good player. We recognise that."Both Australia and New Zealand finish preparations with captain's runs today.
