Auckland - All Black scrumhalf Aaron Smith called on his teammates to up the ante when they face the Springboks on Saturday.

"We wanted to play a bit of footy, and I was a key part of that. I was pretty excited to play with some width as well, and I needed to adjust to the conditions.

"We'd talked before this game about the next two weeks being a very physical thing. The Aussies play very similar to us - very fast footy and they try to beat you on the punch. You know with the Argies and Africans they're coming at you, they're coming round those rucks. I know our big boys get excited about that."
