Australia's New Zealand-born full-back Mike Harris is hoping home ground advantage helps break the All Blacks' impressive winning streak.
The Wallabies' trans-Tasman rivals have already secured the Bledisloe Cup - as well as the World Cup and Rugby Championship crowns - during a 16-Test victory run.
The Brisbane clash is a dead rubber in the annual Bledisloe Cup tussle between the rivals, with the All Blacks winning the opening two games, but Saturday's match is seen as an important Test for coach Robbie Deans and his troubled side.
Australia finished second in the recent Rugby Championship tournament, ahead of Argentina and South Africa but lagging New Zealand after a humiliating 22-0 defeat in their second meeting.
Deans has presided over just three victories from 17 games against the ascendant All Blacks in the past four years and scrutiny has mounted during an inconsistent 2012 campaign marred by injuries to several key players.
"We've had a pretty good record against them at Suncorp, they've shown everyone that they're the best team in the world," said the versatile Harris.
"They've locked up the Bledisloe and locked up the Rugby Championship so in that sort of sense there's not to much to lose and everything to gain."
Harris will retain goal-kicking duties after impressing in Argentina, and is excited by the prospect of playing his first Test against the nation of his birth at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.
"Every Test is obviously massive but in terms of the All Blacks, they're the best in the world and I guess you always want to test yourself against the best so it's definitely one you look forward to," said the Reds utility back.
"There's no better way to have your first Test against the All Blacks than on your home ground."
Harris, who has played fly-half, inside centre and now the unfamiliar role of full-back in his five-cap career, is under no illusions of the challenge keeping the likes of Dan Carter and rival fifteen Israel Dagg at bay.
"Luckily Dan's been in the All Blacks jersey a long time so I've been able to watch him and know where he likes to kick it. That definitely helps in terms of my positioning," he said.
"Dagg was earmarked at a young age, he was a phenomenal athlete and a great talent right from schoolboy level," added Harris.
"He was always destined for bigger and better things and he's been outstanding."
