The man who will probably fill Israel Folau's shoes during the second Bledisloe Cup test this weekend, says sales and the team's inability to continue its mistakes costs the Wallabies at the ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.
Dane Haylett-Petty said the Wallabies had completed a sobering review of their 38-13 capitulation for the All Blacks after arriving at Waiheke Island on Sunday night.
The defending player, who will compete with Kurtley Beale for the No.15 jersey after Folau was ruled out with a tear in the ankle muscle, said Australia's defense held up well until it began to turn over ball.
"If you look at the structured and unstructured defense we were actually really good, but we were killed on turnovers, four or five attempts," he said.
"It was the main part of the game in which we disappoint ourselves, against other teams they probably will not take advantage of all those opportunities, but the All Blacks do it for sure and we can not afford to open the door and to give those opportunities. "
