All Blacks coach Steve Hansen wants his team's third Bledisloe Cup Test - which will take place in Brisbane in October - to be played under the experimental law variations.
The two main new rule changes are a shortened scrum engagement and the limit of five seconds for the ball to be cleared from the back of a ruck.
These laws are already being used in the ITM Cup and also in the new northern hemisphere season.
With New Zealand winning the two earlier Bledisloe Cup matches earlier this year the Brisbane will be a dead rubber which will take place after the completion of the Rugby Championship.
After that both teams head to Europe where they will undertake their annual end-of-year tours.
Hansen believes the schedule made it logical to adopt the experimental rules when his side face the Wallabies at Suncorp Stadium.
"We've asked for that," he told AAP.
"It makes sense. Both teams are going to the northern hemisphere, where they are already playing those rules, so commonsense would suggest that we should play under them."
Hansen said it was a case of wait and see as to what the authorities decided, but believed the Wallabies would be in favour.
"I'm pretty sure Australia will be keen as we are."
