All Blacks continue dominance over Boks

Rested players back to face 'boks

All Blacks captain Kieran Read has restated his side's desire to complete a second successive Rugby Championship with a 100 percent record but warned team mates not to underestimate beleaguered hosts South Africa at Newlands.

While the All Blacks made it six wins in a row against the Springboks, the home team emphatically shook off the horrors of their 57-0 loss to the All Blacks in their last meeting, three weeks ago in Auckland.

The lead changed hands twice in the ensuing 10 minutes, South African replacement back Jean-Luc du Preez's try negated by a sizzling 50-metre solo effort from All Blacks fullback Damian McKenzie.

Beauden Barrett left the field for an HIA, and despite passing, he still didn't feel great so Hansen chose to leave the first-five on the bench. They played their hearts out there and we just came up two points short.

The decision to select his strongest available side highlighted Hansen's desire for the team to continue to build on their performances. We are heading in the right direction. They don't seem to have any weak areas, so we will have to show that we've learnt from our experience in Albany. "But working for the mate next to you; that is something you can not coach and that makes me so proud to see how they play for each other". "We kicked well, we only had one contestable that did not work out and in the end, we were two points short".




"Some of our younger players have not been in that situation before - that when it is tough you have to find a way".

"Whilst we've left some people out that people might've thought might have got a game, or we could've given someone else a rest, there's a bigger picture and we know where we're going with the rest and stuff".

"It's been a great year for us and 2016 was a bit of a breeze, we played some extraordinary rugby".

"For 2019 (Rugby World Cup) we need world class players".
