Rotating cast of first five-eighths making it tough for All Blacks halfback

9:26 am on 5 September 2013

The All Blacks halfback Aaron Smith admits the rotating cast of first five-eighths is making his job tougher.

Smith's set to start inside the third different playmaker in as many games when the All Blacks take on Argentina in Hamilton, with Dan Carter returns from injury.

He says having to adjust to play with a new player each week is far from ideal and it was a similar situation when playing for the Highlanders during the Super rugby season this year.

Smith says he hopes the injury problems are coming to an end and things can settle down.
