'Belief' made the difference for the Springboks, says All Black coach

Lamar Ellis | 10 October, 2017, 00:41

Whitelock, Cane, Squire and Crotty all come back into the starting line-up for the big clash in Cape Town, live on Sky Sports, with the team essentially the same one that destroyed the Springboks 57-0 in Auckland last month.

The All Blacks face Australia in Brisbane on October 21 in a Bledisloe Cup encounter, a trophy they have already retained, before they end the year with a tour of Europe in November.

"We started the second half at the 50-minute mark so we weren't going to muck around, we were going to get the subs on fairly quickly so that is what we did". We are heading in the right direction. That's the same with every team, ' said Hansen. Our side showed tremendous courage and character and had to make a lot of tackles. The players are getting better and better. "Obviously I'm pleased any time we win - it's easier on the ticker when you win 57-0 - but it gives you greater pleasure when it's a real contest, and both sides played well tonight", Hansen told a media conference. "So winning these kind of games is probably more satisfying", Hansen said.

Coetzee said he knew the areas that required further work: "We had them under pressure at times, but you can not give the ball away against New Zealand".

The coach said the hard work was starting to pay off for the team: "The players are enjoying playing for the Springboks", he said.

'In Albany they were there for maybe 20 or 40 minutes but they kept coming tonight. That is what we are looking for.

As the All Blacks celebrate their fifth Championship title in six years, it's impossible not to sympathise with...

Add to the mix that Coetzee has made a few interesting changes for the Test after drawing with Australia for the second time in their Rugby Championship campaign, and the fact that the All Blacks are unbeaten in five matches in the competition, and you soon realise what an uphill battle the Boks are facing.
