1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ALL BLACKS HEAD COACH, STEVE HANSEN, SAYING:

“This team aspires to be better every time we play and if we inspire ourselves to be better than those who want to beat us will be inspired as well. And in the long run that will only be a good thing for rugby because the standard of rugby will get better. We won’t stay on the top of the tree forever, other teams will work hard and find a way. Our job is to keep working as hard as we possibly can to stay there and inspire others to really work hard to try and knock us off. I think there are plenty of teams that can do that.”

STORY: New Zealand All Blacks coach Steve Hansen believes that his team’s high standards will raise the level of competition which will be good for rugby.

New Zealand, who beat South Africa 41-13 to clinch the Rugby Championship title two weeks ago, will play Argentina in Buenos Aires on Saturday (October 1).

The All Blacks are on a 15-test winning streak and have never lost in their 23 matches against Argentina and are the clear favourite to take out the match.

“This team aspires to be better everytime we play and if we inspire ourselves to be better than those who want to beat us will be inspired as well. And in the long run that will only be a good thing for rugby because the standard of rugby will get better. We won’t stay on the top of the tree forever, other teams will work hard and find a way. Our job is to keep working as hard as we possibly can to stay there and inspire others to really work hard to try and knock us off. I think there are plenty of teams that can do that,” said Hansen in Buenos Aires on Thursday (September 29).
