Sunwolves defence coach Scott Hansen isn't sure any plan can defuse Israel Folau's aerial menace.
But that doesn't mean the Waratahs star will have things all his own way in the air in Saturday's Super Rugby clash in Sydney.
The Waratahs and Wallabies have used Folau's spring-heeled leaping ability effectively in recent times, though he missed the Tahs last game, after he was banned for his mid-air challenge on Ireland captain Peter O'Mahony.
Folau is adamant he won't change his technique following the ban and he is bound to test the aerial defence of a Sunwolves side that has conceded the most points in this year's competition.
The Wallabies complained about what they felt was illegal blocking of Folau after the second Test.
It remains to be seen how the Sunwolves can negate his influence in the air, though they clearly intend making it as hard as possible for the flying fullback.
"When you talk about a plan to stop him, I don't know if there is such a plan, because he is what he is,' Hansen said.
"But what you can do is influence the play around that, influence how we protect the guy in the back and how we allow him to have more time and space."
"So we've got a plan to cater for that, but that will be tested tomorrow night obviously."
Hansen stressed NSW had plenty of other players apart from Folau who posed threats to the Sunwolves.
"Watching their last couple of games, they've really taken their attack to a new level and we're really excited to play them," he said.
'They are playing really well ,they've got X-factor right across the field, so it's going to be a big challenge for us defensively, but we're looking forward to it."
The increasingly confident Sunwolves are looking to pose some problems of their own for NSW, after winning three of their past five games.
"We're in a place where we feel that we know our game, we're comfortable with our skill set," Hansen said.
"With those wins come confidence and with confidence comes the continued ability to express yourself."
