Read returns for All Blacks' Springboks clash

Read returns for All Blacks' Springboks clash

The Springboks could climb as high as third in the world, leapfrogging both England and Wales should they repeat their feat in Wellington last month - and defeat the mighty All Blacks in the Rugby Championship this weekend.

Kriel and André Esterhuizen warded off the Australian threats last week but New Zealand have a midfield cutting edge like no other country in the world.

The dedicated supporters have travelled from the Eastern Cape for the match.

The match at Loftus, which will take place before a capacity crowd of close to 50 000 people, is also the last home game of the year for Kolisi and his Springbok teammates.

"We must focus on ourselves and where we can get better, and obviously look at what we did wrong in the All Blacks and Australia games and try to improve on that".

Louw had gone back to play for Bath in the English Premiership after featuring for the Springboks in their opening four matches of this year's Rugby Championship.

"We always believed we were going to get it done but we didn't and so that hurts".

Williams offered a timely reminder of his offloading ability in New Zealand's win over Argentina in Buenos Aires, even if it wasn't anything the Springboks didn't feel they'd seen before.

"You can't beat a test in Pretoria, hopefully it's a sellout".

The team was in control of the game for a while, and we have to be sure that we manage the situations better. That was time enough for him to reject suggestions his squad were struggling for confidence.

Prop Owen Franks said there was still plenty to play for against South Africa even with the title in the bag.

Looking ahead to a highly anticipated showdown that could see the Springboks complete a rare double over the sworn enemy‚ Bok assistant coach Matt Proudfoot acknowledged that the All Blacks boast a powerful pack. "So we will look to control the things that we can control and we will work on the little things".

"We're aware of what to expect and how physical it will be". We will have to front up in defence and be clinical when we creating chances because the All Blacks punish you for errors and missed opportunities.

During their last meeting‚ the All Blacks dominated the match with 76% possession‚ 71% territory and they forced South Africa to make a whooping 287 tackles.

"That victory was awesome for us, but it's in the past now and we have to focus on this week", he said.

Erasmus changed three of the starters who repulsed waves of second-half Australian assaults to emerge 23-12 victors in Port Elizabeth last weekend.

Francois Louw and Steven Kitshoff also come into the starting XV.

Saturday's Test is scheduled for 17:05.
