"Conrad never misses a tackle," Nonu said.
"And you know you pretty much get caught out if you do."
Despite having 66 tests, Nonu has been back to school this week, talking with Smith, making sure that he is aware of the nuances of the position.
"Yeah he's been helping a lot the last few days and the last week," he said.
"He texted me this morning about a few things...that he had to remind me and I said nah thanks buddy."
Nonu and Richie McCaw currently share the all-time All Blacks try scoring record over Australia, with eight each (together with Ian Kirkpatrick, Christian Cullen and Doug Howlett), yet there has been little talk from the combination about breaking the long standing mark.
