Plenty to play for, despite series bagged

The All Blacks have dismissed concerns about a laser being pointed at the ground during yesterday's win against Argentina, describing it as the actions of one idiot.
And with the team due to touch down in South Africa in just a few hours for their final match of the rugby championship, they insist, despite having already won it, there's still plenty to play for.
Coach Steve Hansen is happy with how his players got through the match against the Pumas, and says the Soweto test could be a chance to give some of the regular players a rest.
Try scoring halfback Aaron Smith is keen to continue in the starters position and he says the players enjoyed yesterday's win, and the Argentine crowd.
If the All Blacks do beat South Africa it will be their 16th in succession, one short of the New Zealand record held by the 1965 to 1970 All Blacks, and two shy of the official international record of 18 consecutive wins set by Lithuania.
