The All Blacks have had an easy day in Pretoria as they continue to get over their physical clash with the Wallabies.

There was a light training session today for the All Blacks ahead of Sunday morning's test against the Springboks in Bloemfontein with three players, Richie McCaw, Conrad Smith and Issac Ross, nursing minor injuries, but taking part in the session.

Smith is expected to be avialable for selection and he says Saturday's close tussle with the Australians shows it's going to be a tight competition.
