Former All Blacks coach Steve Hansen feels the domestic structure in Australian rugby needs to be overhauled to make it more competitive.

With the rejoin of Western Force, Australia now have five teams in Super Rugby but were completely outplayed in the Trans-Tasman battle as the New Zealand teams looked a class apart.

Out of the 25 teams involving Australian teams, they managed to win just two (one apiece from Brumbies and Queensland Reds) as they finished the competition in the bottom five places.

Even in the recently concluded encounters at Eden Park, New Zealand won back-to-back matches as Australia failed to conquer the Bledisloe Cup for the 19th consecutive year.

How will New Zealand get on if they play South Africa in The Rugby Championship? It could be worth a bet plus try out new zealand casino as well.

Speaking on the ABC Sport's Corbin and Ben radio program, Hansen said Australia will need to reduce their Super Rugby teams to three to make it more competitive and you can also try out online slots as well.

"You only need three teams."If you look at the [Australian] Super [Rugby] teams, there's too many of them," said Hansen.

"For them to be able to prepare their players to compete at Test rugby the way they should be allowed to prepare, I think they need to pick Team A, B and C and then select players from all the interstate [teams], [and] throw them into those three teams.

"Make it really competitive to get in, and then from there I think there'll be a lot more competitive [teams] in the Super games and they'll win more games and get confidence."
