The world champions have, once again, been the dominant force in the southern hemisphere’s premier international competition and a bonus-point victory in this fixture against their traditional foes will secure them a third successive tournament win for New Zealand.
The men in black have been in superb form and are sitting pretty at the top of the Rugby Championship table with 15 points after notching bonus-points wins in their three matches against Australia (twice) and Argentina.
By contrast, the Springboks have found the going tough and apart from a hard-fought victory over Argentina in their tournament opener in Durban, have little to crow about as they suffered a defeat against the Pumas in the rematch in Mendoza and also lost to Australia in Brisbane last weekend.
The Springboks are a far cry from the side who started their international campaign on a high when they claimed a 2-1 series victory against England in June. They head into this clash with confidence at a low after those setbacks to Argentina and Australia.
The Boks were their own worst enemies in last weekend’s defeat to the Wallabies in Brisbane as they committed too many unforced errors. A similar performance could see a repeat of last year’s corresponding fixture against the All Blacks in Albany when the world champions cruised to a 57-0 victory.
Despite being overwhelming favourites, the All Blacks expect a tough assignment against the Springboks, who will be determined to return to the victory trail and in doing so claim their first win on New Zealand soil since 2009.
All Blacks assistant coach Ian Foster believes his side are in for a tough assignment against a dangerous opponent.
“We’ve got to prepare to play a team that is going to turn up and play the best game of the year,” he said.
“We always look at ‘what-ifs’ and how they’re going about it.
Foster said he had observed that South Africa had started to trust a more expansive game in recent years and the two countries had played some classic, and very exciting, games during that time.
“We expect that but it is going to be based on a collision and a toughness, you have got to win that battle in any Test but you certainly have to win it this week,” he added.
“We know that if we get our mindset right and our detail in our game right that gives us our best chance of playing well and winning, so there comes a point in the week that we don’t spend a lot of time in the week talking about the opposition, it’s more about us.
“They love the collision, they’re tough there, they carry hard. They take a lot of pride in their set-piece work and they’ve got some backs that really enjoy space out wide if we give it to them. They’ve got a lot of speed.
“It’s not so much are they playing different, it’s just some of the tactics within each part of the game and when you put them under pressure it’s where they go to under those pressure moments and that’s probably what we spend most time looking at.”
