Graham Henry believes that New Zealand can still improve after their comfortable 40-7 win over South Africa.

New Zealand coach Graham Henry believes that his side can still improve following their 40-7 Tri-Nations win over South Africa today.

The All Blacks proved too strong for a second string Springboks in Wellington, but while Henry was happy with the performance, he said that there are still areas to be worked on.

"I was pleased with the performance but there is still plenty to work on," said Henry.

"Our kicking game, at times, lacked what we wanted to achieve and our defence around the rucks could also be improved. Overall it was a seven out of ten performance."

The result was a second successive resounding win for the All Blacks, after they warmed up for the Tri-Nations with a 60-14 victory over Fiji last weekend.

They continue their Tri-Nations campaign with a match against Australia in Auckland on Saturday, August 6.
