The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
Youngs said: “We started too slowly against the All Blacks and you can’t afford to allow a team like them to build an early lead.
“You must go at these teams from the start and that’s something we must put right against Australia.”
He also acknowledges his battle with opposite number, Will Genia, will be crucial to victory.
Genia has become an influential member of the Wallabies team since his debut against England last year and Youngs is keen to win the personal duel.
“Will is a great player who loves to move the ball quickly and can be so dangerous at the breakdown,” he added.
“I enjoyed playing against him in the summer and I know I am going to have to be at my best against him this weekend.”
The Wallabies visit Twickenham on the back of impressive 25-16 victory over Wales last weekend.
