Kris Shannon's player ratings from the All Blacks' 41-13 victory over South Africa in Christchurch.
Ben Smith 8
Exemplified the All Blacks as a strong second half slowly but surely saw his team surge away. Another day, another try.
Israel Dagg 8
Proved elusive on the right wing as he continued his excellent Super Rugby form at the home of the Crusaders.
Malakai Fekitoa 7
One unfortunate error but always made good ground when with the ball. Dependable on defence.
Ryan Crotty 7
Another assured display, linking well with Fekitoa in an ever-improving midfield partnership.
Julian Savea 7
Good finish to score his first try against South Africa. Enjoyed fewer opportunities to run but still made defenders miss.
Beauden Barrett 8
Less of the dynamic running of recent weeks but directed his team well and kicked accurately, except from the tee.
Aaron Smith 9
Picked the perfect pass for three of his side's tries. Electric with ball in hand and back to his game-breaking best.
Kieran Read 8
As steady as ever in the lineout and typically direct in the carry. A fine all-round performance on his home turf.
Ardie Savea 7
Made plenty of tackles and won a couple of turnovers. One grubber showed an attribute not shared by Sam Cane.
Jerome Kaino 7
One memorable line break that almost produced points. Injury prematurely ended his evening.
Sam Whitelock 7
Crossed for his fifth test try after substitutions saw him switch to loose forward. Effortlessly effective in the lineout
Brodie Retallick 6
Fewer carries but as hard-hitting as always in the collision. Needs to find more effective contact lenses.
Owen Franks 7
Tackled relentlessly. Didn't get his hands on the ball as his long wait for a try extended into record-breaking territory.
Dane Coles 9
Brilliant hands to set up the first two tries. Thrived inside the tram lines all evening, though the chip and chase needs work.
Joe Moody 6
Held his own in the scrum while rarely featuring around the field. Replaced early in the second half.
16 Codie Taylor 5/10
17 Wyatt Crockett 6/10
18 Charlie Faumuina 6/10
19 Luke Romano 6/10
20 Matt Todd 7/10
21 TJ Perenara 7/10
22 Lima Sopoaga N/A
23 Anton Lienert-Brown 7
Johan Goosen 7
Made the initial bust that led to the Spingboks' opening try. Cleaned up and kicked well at the back.
Bryan Habana 6
Still has plenty of pace and can still run a fine line, as illustrated by his try. Essentially a bystander after that early spark.
Jesse Kriel 5
Anonymous on defence and only a little better in attack. Struggled to make his mark in the midfield.
Juan du Jongh 4
Missed too many tackles in defence and never made his presence known on attack.
Francois Hougaard 5
Struggled to restrict the influence of Dagg and provided no such pain when South Africa enjoyed possession.
Elton Jantjies 3
Big mistake handed back the initiative after taking the lead. Another error from the kickoff set the tone for the second spell.
Faf de Klerk 5
Blown away by his opposite number. Made no in-roads around the fringes and fell off tackles when targeted.
Warren Whiteley 8
Threw a fantastic pass to set up Habana's try. One of the better Boks with ball in hand. A handful at the breakdown.
Oupa Mohoje 5
Quiet in all aspects as the All Blacks' loose forwards attracted much of the attention. Subbed early in the second half.
Francois Louw 5
Made little impact as only Whitely held his own in the loosie battle. Generated no turnover ball.
Pieter-Steph Du Toit 7
Regularly found the ball in his hands and regularly made good metres. A consistent presence in the lineout.
Eden Etzebeth 6
Proficient in his few carries and contributed well in the lineout until Strauss exited the field.
Vincent Koch 7
Enjoyed some nice touches around the park. An uneven effort in a scrum that was steady and then struggled.
Adriaan Strauss 5
Quiet on both sides of the ball before being forced off shortly after the break. Did operate a functioning lineout.
Tendai Mtawarira 5
Not quite as beastly as his nickname would suggest. Scrummaged well but ineffective around the field.
16 Malcolm Marx 5/10
17 Steven Kitshoff 5/10
18 Lourens Adriaanse N/A
19 Franco Mostert 6/10
20 Willem Alberts 5/10
21 Jaco Kriel 5/10
22 Morne Steyn 6/10
23 Damien de Allende 6/10
