Speaking to media this afternoon, Hames hit back at the suggestion from a Fairfax writer that he was light on experience and wasn't a "fearsome srummager".

The All Blacks first-five praised McKenzie's vocal direction on the pitch but had a dig at him about his off field 'chat'.

"I read an article today - Marc Hinton - he said I'm not a renowned scrummager," Hames started.

"I know your job is to write a whole lot of things which is great."

"We've got to do a whole lot of research to make sure we get it right, it'd be great if you could too."

To Hinton's credit, he didn't shy away after being called out.

McKenzie dropped a few high balls against the Pumas and said that he can't afford to do that against South Africa.
