A winning team is unchangeable. Heyneke Meyer, the South African coach, decided to follow the maxim for the match of the 4th day of the Four Nations.
Thus we will find the same South African XV which faced last Saturday the Wallabies (12-32), this September 14 for the shock at the top against the All Blacks in New Zealand. “We have signed a good win last week, but it is now part of the past, Heyneke Meyer notwithstanding warned. Play against the All Blacks at home, this is the ultimate challenge, and we’re excited to meet the challenge. “
Leader in the standings, the Springboks will try Saturday to tumble down the Blacks, World Champion and the reigning champion of this Championship. A meeting scheduled for this Saturday in Auckland.
