Slade calm about the job ahead

4:10 pm on 9 October 2011

The All Black first five Colin Slade says he's feeling good about taking on Argentina in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals at Eden Park tonight.

Slade is now the man in charge of controlling the game after replacing Dan Carter in the key number 10 jersey.

Slade says the job of filling in for Carter is being made easier by having the likes of Piri Weepu, Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith around him.
