Wallabies coach Michael Cheika admits criticism from ex-players "hurts" but concedes the team has to grin and bear it until their fortunes turn around.
The Wallabies points came from two Bernard Foley penalties and one by Reece Hodge.
Meanwhile Wallabies skipper Stephen Moore bristled at the suggestion that the Bledisloe Cup was more significant for the All Blacks.
The stats make for frightful reading for Australians, who tell the story of a New Zealand attack that butchered a Wallaby defence which didn't look like they belonged on the same field as the All Blacks.
New Zealand trained in light drizzle on Friday, however such inclement weather is expected to clear before kick-off.
Cooper has not donned the green and gold since last year's World Cup but will run out at No.10 after Matt Giteau and Rob Horne suffered injuries in Australia's 42-8 loss to New Zealand on Saturday.
"They threw everything at us as we knew they would and there was a bit of niggle".
The All Blacks won plaudits for the near ideal first half they played to rout Australia in their Rugby Championship opener last week, though captain Kieran Read has hammered into his team the need to improve even further.
The All Blacks have depleted their stocks of experienced 12s and will start Anton Lienert-Brown in his Test debut opposite Foley.
Beauden Barrett turned his phenomenal Super Rugby form into the first choice All Blacks 10 jersey and didn't disappoint with a dazzling display of handsome ball running that we've come to expect from the Hurricanes 10.
The All Blacks monopolized possession in the second half which put the Wallabies defense under constant strain.
It was a far closer game than their previous encounter in Sydney last weekend after Australia displayed a much tighter defence compared to their performance last weekend. Julian Savea and Dane Coles both crossed in the second half. The All Blacks' ability to pass in contact continually stretched Australia's defense and the visitors were barely hanging on as the match entered the final quarter, forced to exhaust its bench. Problems throughout the backline will be more hard to address. "Well done to New Zealand". They were keen to play rugby against whoever was in the opposition. "We're very confident that he'll go out and do the job".
Such was New Zealand's superiority over their competitors, it looked as though they could claim a record victory over the Wallabies, with a 43-6 win in 1996 the standard.
"There was a time there in the game, in a break in play, when the national captain of Australia was asking the referee 'When might be an opportunity for me to talk to you?' and he just absolutely ignored him", Cheika said.
