I thought Smith (A) had a pretty average game despite scoring a try. Getting caught behind the first scrum in identical fashion to a fortnight ago and giving away a kickable penalty. He was hard done by not gaining the penalty for throwing the ball into the retiring SA number 7 though. It's up to the retiring player not to interfere with the play. But Smith's play seemed ponderous compared to Perenara.
Whether it was due to oxygen debt, or just the right man for the job, things lit up when Mo'unga came on, Barrett (B) went to fullback and Smith (B) to the wing.
SBW seemed almost anonymous and maybe there are better options in the mid backs now. Or just SA's rush defence meant there was no time available.
What today's win will do is instill in the new guys to never give up. Things looked hopeless with 11 minutes to go. History shows otherwise.
The All Blacks are really missing two people. Brodie Retallick and Wayne Smith.
