"And there's several areas where we need to be better at the set-piece".
I was at the club and he turned up and we're were having a chat and I said can I help you?
Gatland was impressed by the flair his team showed, and took a mild swipe at New Zealand's pragmatic approach.
Reflecting on the 30-15 defeat, he said: "The message was things we can fix - we switched off for a quick tap at the try, the ball's gone through Liam Williams' hands and Ioane scored, and a scrum penalty that they took advantage from". However, Hansen can be fully satisfied with the 15 that were wearing black in Auckland.
"We have to regroup, have a good look at that and move on now".
The All Blacks captain had not played since late April after breaking his thumb on Super Rugby duty with the Crusaders, but it was like he had never been away, such was the impact he made on proceedings. And I mean down and dirty in the most respectful way.
Gatland said the squad would head down to the New Zealand capital without any injury problems beyond "a couple of stingers", which was good news given the test in the tight that New Zealand presented on Saturday.
Sean O'Brien: Fine individual display, great support for the try and made some serious metres (44) but New Zealand won the battle of the breakdown and that is a fundamental that will have to be addressed. They had to go straight to the heart of the beast - the Lions' fearsome defence close to the ruck - in order to get those gains out wide and Smith paid credit to his pack, and backs, including Sonny Bill Williams, for charging in with little regard to their safety.
Read backed his side to keep focused with the job nearly done, having played in plenty of high-stakes matches in the past six years.
Barrett's 15 points and left winger Rieko Ioane's two tries will get the headlines, but captain Kieran Read and his hard men up front will get all the plaudits from within the All Blacks inner sanctum.
Warren Gatland's side threw a flurry of punches before and after half-time, but couldn't land the killer blow. At the other end, lapses in concentration were punished by Ioane's two second-half touchdowns.
When the trash talking finally stopped, the All Blacks wrecked the British and Irish Lions' scrum to dump the tourists' first Test chances in the dustbin. We're happy with some of the opportunities but our discipline wasn't where it was at. It wasn't flawless but it was only our second test of the year so we'll build on that.
"We felt that we could hurt them if we could get in there (behind the defensive line) and take away their line-speed", Hansen said. Our discipline wasn't where it should be, we conceded double figures in penalties. We can't leave tries out there.
All Blacks perform the Haka before the first Test against the Lions.
'We've got to go back to the drawing board to solve a few issues, but there's no need to panic, we just need to get our basics right, holding onto the ball.style="text-align: center;"
