Two changes for All Blacks

New Zealand have made two changes ahead of Saturday's Bledisloe Cup clash against Australia in Melbourne, with Jimmy Cowan and Joe Rokocoko both promoted to the starting line-up.

Cowan will wear the number nine jersey ahead of an unlucky Piri Weepu, who was among the All Blacks' best against South Africa in Wellington.

Rokocoko has been rushed straight back into the run-on side at the expense of Rene Ranger after overcoming a hamstring injury.

The in-form Weepu, who became a father for the first time on Sunday, will start on the bench while Ranger will play no part in the match despite scoring a try in his run-on debut against the Springboks.
