The All Blacks are expecting a high quality challenge from a revived South Africa side in their top‑of‑the‑table Rugby Championship encounter on Saturday.
All Blacks‑Springboks clashes are always among the highlights of the test season.
South Africa coach Allister Coetzee said at the weekend he was disappointed with the draw with the Wallabies, but proud of the way his side battled back from 10 points down early in the second half to remain unbeaten in six tests this year.
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has been experimenting with his side so it remains to be seen if the Springboks will have to contend with rookie flanker Vaea Fifita, who burned the Pumas defence to score a try in his first test start last Saturday.
The All Blacks will host South Africa at 7.35pm Saturday while Australia take on Argentina at 10pm Saturday.
