New Zealand will be aiming to make it five straight wins when they take on South Africa in their final 2014 Rugby Championship fixture at Ellis Park on Saturday.

Even though the Springboks have no hope of topping the table they will be keen to avenge last year’s defeat to the All Blacks in Johannesburg.
On that occasion the Rugby Championship crown was at stake and New Zealand prevailed 38-27 after a nine-try thriller. In their only clash since, New Zealand won 14-10 earlier in this year’s tournament.
South Africa are sweating on the fitness of No 8 Duane Vermuelen, who has been named in Heyneke Meyer’s starting XV but faces a race against time to recover from a rib cartilage injury. Schalk Burger will take his place if he misses out.
Bryan Habana has been named on the wing despite suffering a blow to the head in the 28-10 victory over Australia last time out.
