SHOWS: NEW PLYMOUTH, NEW ZEALAND (SEPTEMBER 9, 2017) (TVNZ - Broadcasters: NO ACCESS NEW ZEALAND Digital: NO ACCESS NEW ZEALAND INTERNET SITES / ANY INTERNET SITE OF ANY NEW ZEALAND OR AUSTRALIAN BASED MEDIA ORGANISATIONS OR MOBILE PLATFORMS) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW ZEALAND ALL BLACKS RUGBY UNION COACH, STEVE HANSEN SAYING: "You know, we've come off a great year, last year and we've come into this year and it's not flowing as easy for us and we are having to work at it. It's probably what we need and teams are putting a lot more pressure on us with line speed and how we are dealing with that at times hasn't been that great. We are trying to play this brand of rugby that everyone wants us to play, but sometimes that's going to force errors and you know, we just have to get better at it." STORY: The All Blacks were again their own worst enemies despite scoring six tries in their 39-22 victory over Argentina in their Rugby Championship match on Saturday (September 9). The world champions produced a muddled display, characterised by poor decision-making and execution of basic skills, that put them under pressure until they finally seized some semblance of control of the game with 30 minutes remaining. "We just have to get better at it," coach Steve Hansen said. Hansen's concerns will need to be addressed quickly as his side prepare for a clash with a resurgent South Africa next Saturday (September 16).
