Kieran Marmion has warned New Zealand that by targeting his compatriot and Irish center, Bundee Aki can win the expected test between the best rugby nations in the world.
The All Blacks led to a balance of tensions with Ireland ahead of tomorrow's convincing autumn test in Dublin, highlighting a number of elements in the configuration of Joe Schmidt.
Assistant coach Ian Foster first stated that Johnny Sexton "seems to give the judges some advice," and then joked Aki, born in New Zealand "looks now like an Irishman."
Ireland in the semi-finals Marmion jumped to defend his teammate Connacht, Aki, and urged New Zealand to pay if they tried to dismantle the former Chiefs center.
"It will not bother him, he will probably just release him," said Marmion.

"We expect Bundee to go straight to them, he will not hold back, he will enjoy the challenge, it will be quite a spectacle, which he will consider to be honest."
Born and raised in Auckland, Aki almost lost his life in rugby when he abandoned his late teens to work in a bank and provide a young family.
Former All Blacks captain, Tana Umaga, persuaded him to return to Manukau County before Aki scored in Super Rugby with the Chiefs.
The Bullocking Center took the test chance with Ireland after it moved to Connacht and qualified for the residence, and this weekend it will win the 12th place.
Irish chief, Schmidt, pointed out that New Zealand had chosen many foreign-born footballers who were discussing Aki's question in the country of his birth, and then Marmion followed suit.
"Last week I shared a room with Bundee, talked a bit about this game, and can not wait to get there and have a chance for these guys," he said.
"I am sure he will know that he must remain calm and not be a fool." I'm sure he's smart enough for that.
"They will look for him, but he plays enough rugby and has enough experience to know that he is not doing anything stupid." He is a tough boy so he will agree with that.
