Britain hope history will be on their side in the one-off test against Australia next Friday despite their recent record against the world champions.
Although they have lost their last three series at home, Britain have won the opening match each time only to lose the next two.
"History has shown over the past few years we have done all right in the one-off test matches," fullback Kris Radlinski told reporters after the team arrived in Sydney.
"It's in the series matches that we've struggled. We're pretty confident in each other's ability and maybe we'd like to show people over here we can play a little bit."
Captain Andy Farrell said his team faced a huge task.
"We're playing the best team in the world and everybody knows that," he said. "To come over here and play them in their own backyard is a massive task but we're confident in our own ability.
"We're confident if we get the performance right on the night, Australia are going to struggle as well."
