All Blacks to return to scene of ‘bug gate’

The Daily Telegraph can confirm the New Zealand team will base themselves at the Intercontinental in Double Bay before the first Bledisloe Cup match against Australia on August 19.
Last year on the morning of their Bledisloe win over the Wallabies, the story broke of how a listening device was apparently found in the All Blacks’ team meeting room at the hotel, leading to bitter division between the two camps.
