Smith says it's up to the players to lift their game for second Test

7:57 am on 12 June 2014

The All Blacks centre Conrad Smith says the pressure is on the players who underperformed in the opening Test against England to play better in the second clash in Dunedin on Saturday night.

Just two changes have been made to the starting line-up with winger Julian Savea returning from injury and Ben Smith moving to fullback for the injured Israel Dagg.

The All Blacks made far too many mistakes in their 20-15 win at Eden Park and Smith's sure they'll will improve this Saturday.

The England team is named later this morning.
