All Black Is­rael Dagg says Ben Smith has made the right de­ci­sion to pull out of the Lions se­ries ‘‘be­cause you’ve only got one brain’’.

Dagg will take Smith’s full­back po­si­tion for the sec­ond test against the Lions in Welling­ton to­mor­row, af­ter the All Blacks vice-cap­tain pulled out be­cause of con­cus­sion.

Dagg praised him for the de­ci­sion, say­ing it was the right one to make.

‘‘I said to him you’ve only got one brain. We all have only one brain,’’ Dagg said yes­ter­day. ‘‘It is pretty sim­ple at the end of the day, we have got to make good de­ci­sions.’’
