The final week of the inaugural Rugby Championship starts with the Springboks hosting the All Blacks at the FNB Stadium in Soweto, the scene of a come from behind victory for the All Blacks not so long ago.

The Boks come off a good victory over Australia last weekend, but will have to improve to overcome the challenge they face today, against a team that has not only wrapped up the Rugby Championship already, but has not lost in 15 consecutive test matches.

The All Blacks will go out today looking for their sixteenth victory on the trot, one away from a record 17 wins they share with the Springboks, and two away from the World Record holders Lithuania.

Any talks of a dead rubber are completely out the window in a clash between the world’s two best teams, a game that is sure to be a mammoth affair, and a match that will give the South African rugby loving public a great boost of confidence if a victory is pulled off.

South Africa: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Bryan Habana, 13 Jaco Taute, 12 Jean de Villiers (captain), 11 François Hougaard, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Ruan Pienaar, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 François Louw, 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.

Replacements: 16 Tiaan Liebenberg, 17 Coenie Oosthuizen, 18 Flip van der Merwe, 19 Marcell Coetzee, 20 Elton Jantjies, 21 Juan de Jongh, 22 Pat Lambie.

New Zealand: 15 Israel Dagg, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 Hosea Gear, 10 Daniel Carter, 9 Aaron Smith, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (captain), 6 Liam Messam, 5 Samuel Whitelock , 4 Brodie Retallick, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Andrew Hore, 1 Tony Woodcock.

Replacements: 16 Keven Mealamu, 17 Ben Franks, 18 Luke Romano, 19 Adam Thomson, 20 Piri Weepu, 21 Aaron Cruden, 22 Tamati Ellison.

  • I am watching the pre-game show on SuperSport and one thing that has been bugging me, and bugs me again today, is the truly awful way Botha and Willemse talk. They hardly manage to finish a word. Don’t they appoint people for tv based upon appearance and linguistic abilities anymore? It’s like listening to two drunk guys.

    You are behind by 3 points, your line-out is working perfectly, maul is rolling well, kickers are dire. What option do you choose with a penalty?

    We give it horns in the first half but cannot put the ball between the posts … so all our dominance is only worth 4 points at half time…

  • Johan Goosen was, at best, very average vs AB. Elton Jantjies was only slightly better … That leaves Patrick Lambie, still unused at flyhalf by Heyneke Meyer – all we ask is for Lambie to be given the opportunity to play at flyhalf – then it will become clear to everybody that Patrick is the best flyhalf in SA and that he should play at flyhalf (and not at fullback) …..!!

  • I know I’m going to get flak for this but I don’t care.

    Johan Goosen is way to much of a sissy, for lack of any other profanity free terminology, to be an international player .Talented yes ,tenacious certainly not, yet. While we wait for him to grow a pair and learn to drop his shoulder we are overlooking other talented players, completely.

    Why is everyone singing F.Louws praises? He isn’t an open side flank by any stretch of the imagination ,he is a blindside flank who is a competent ball carrier and also who is a handy player around the breakdown, that’s it. There is so much more to open side play than just those two aspects .He isnt fast enough to compete in the same running lines as Mcaw,Hooper ,Brussow ,Pococok or even other flanks in this country. People wonder why our defense seems to leave space out wide ? Because our loose forwards don’t cover the areas they are supposed to leaving our centers ,scrumhalves and fly-halves committed to those channels.

    We also need to start selecting intelligent players first .

    Yes . With Goosen its called ‘pressure’. He might be the best player ever potentially . But if he cant stay injury free and handle pressure he will never make it .

    I dont think Elton kicked badly . He missed a long range kick ..

    Elton looked much more confident . I think given enough time Elton will settle nicely into this Bok team and become a super star …

  • You can single out a number of players and incidents for this loss…ultimitely, the coach was watching this unfold and was unable to change the flow. Taute was bad defensively, yet he was afforded 76 minutes? Did HM think Taute’s inexperience will enable him to come good??? His unsuccessful touch-finder also lead to an AB try.
    Almost forgot…Loui Skoen???? Really?

  • Where the ABs show us up big time is in the way they use their ball effectively. Whenever they got the ball you felt worried as a S’bok supporter. When we got the ball, our forwards had so much confidence in the backline that they chose to keep the ball and try to pick ‘n go all the time until someone was dispossessed. Also how many aimless kicks did you see. We need to look at our backline and the coaching thereof. Also why do their youngsters seem older than our youngsters?
