All Blacks coach Ian Foster says that they are bitterly disappointed but he felt it was their most improved performance this year.
He made these comments after their loss to South Africa yesterday.
Foster says their job right now is to look at their performance and how they can grow it.
On Beauden Barrett, Foster says scans revealed no damage to Barrett's neck, although he was still sore after a mid-air clash that resulted in Springbok wing Kurt-Lee Arendse being sent off.
A decision on his availability will be made for Ellis Park later in the week.
The All Blacks will face the Springboks at Ellis Park this Sunday at 3.05 am.
