All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has turned the blowtorch back on the Wallabies, saying their trans-Tasman rivals are under pressure to finally deliver after 14 years of Bledisloe Cup heartache.

Hansen says the Wallabies "are kidding themselves if they don't think they've got any pressure" on them as underdogs heading into Saturday night's Rugby Championship opener in Sydney.

Hansen also dismissed Australian coach Michael Cheika's claim that the world champions don't respect the Wallabies as the war of words between the pair continued on Thursday.
