Smit happy with his propping

The Springbok captain John Smit says he's happy with his transformation from hooker to prop.

An inexperienced Wallaby front row was able to put the Boks' scrum under pressure as they suffered their first loss of the Tri-Nations in Brisbane last weekend.

That area of the game has been hi-lited as one area the All Blacks may be able to get an advantage in what is likely to be the series decider in Hamilton on Saturday night.

While the spotlight is now on the Springbok captain, Smit doesn't think he's been found out in the position....
