"To be successful against Australia it's certainly not going to be by taking a backward step or allowing the Australians just to dictate terms," he said.

"You've got to get out and fight fire with fire, be positive and aggressive and individuals have to play their own natural game.

"They have been selected to play their way and that is what's going to be successful for them."
