All Black coach Steve Hansen's responded in typical fashion to questions over whether he will be in Brisbane for the final Bledisloe Cup test on Saturday.

Hansen's father passed away on Tuesday, but he insists there was never any chance he wouldn't fly out with the team this afternoon.

He says there was never any doubt he'd go to Brisbane, his Dad would roll over and shoot him if he didn't.

Hansen says the All Black family has been fantastic in helping him through what's been a tough week.
