"We're delighted to have a few cameras shying away from us," said Smit, who led the Springboks to Rugby World Cup glory in 2007.
It is natural, Smit said, that all eyes be pinned on the All Blacks.
"It's par for the course for a team that has played some of the best rugby and is hosting the tournament."
