All Blacks praise proud Springboks

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. "They never disappoint us, they always turn up when we play them here".

South Africa fired back with a try five minutes later through flanker Jean-Luc du Preez but just when you think the All Blacks are on the back foot, they create something out of nothing and score a scintillating try. The difference was the All Blacks' ability to seize game-changing chances.

Hansen said he expected a backlash from the Springboks, who were heavily criticised by their fans after their record defeat in New Zealand.

"We scored a maul-try with 14 men on the field against the best team in the world, those things build belief".

"There's no doubt that try was the catalyst for us winning the game".
