No instructions from All Blacks to Super Rugby teams

While there has been suggestion that perhaps some messages are translated to each region – with perhaps talk of the town Ben Smith playing in the Highlanders midfield, while some players such as members of the tight five could do with a rest in the coming weeks - such things will be decided by their Super Rugby coaches.
There will be crossover between Test coaches and Super Rugby mentors, but this was more for the overall skill and fitness programs that the now disassembled All Blacks will follow to ensure a smooth transition back to their respective teams.
Hansen said that there had been open conversation as the All Blacks wound down the Steinlager Series after winning 3-0 against France.
"We had some really good phone conferences on Friday," Hansen said.
"We call them transition handovers for the players that have been with us. There's a skill and physical programme we want them to work on.
“We got good buy in from all the Super coaches. We won't being going down the road of telling them who to pick or where to play them. That's up to them. They've got to drive their team the way they see it.
"Obviously one or two aren't going to go much further than three weeks. Others are really striving to go all the way. Each team has got their issues to deal with."
