Read warns All Blacks to be wary of Boks

Rested players back to face 'boks

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

The sides were neck and neck throughout the game and scored three tries a piece, with the home side crossing the line through Ross Cronje, Handre Polland and the brilliant Malcom Marx, who scored right before the final whistle. "They always turn up when we play them in this country".

At 25-17, the All Blacks created enough of a cushion to cling on, even after hooker Malcolm Marx drove over for South Africa with two minutes left.

South Africa suffered a record 57-0 defeat to New Zealand away last month. The difference was the All Blacks' ability to seize game-changing chances.

"It's tough lessons that we're learning", Springboks coach Allister Coetzee said.

"57-0 is much easier on the ticker".

France close to qualifying for 2018 World Cup after win over Bulgaria
The Lions have only won one out of their last three games, most recently coming off a 3-1 defeat against the Netherlands . Didier Deschamps admits his side lacked aggression as they laboured to an uninspired 1-0 win over Bulgaria in Sofia.

"We're looking to play a team that will be hurting incredibly, I would suggest, after Albany and we need to make sure that we meet that and continue on growing and developing ourselves", Hansen told reporters in Cape Town.

"You've got two young guys who are going to take a bucket-load of confidence out of being under an extreme amount of pressure and come out and know that they can do things well", said coach Steve Hansen after Saturday's narrow victory.

The New Zealanders won 25-24 after leading 8-3 at halftime.

The All Blacks had to overcome setbacks in the form of injuries to Beauden Barrett and Nehe Milner-Skudder, with Lima Sopoaga effortlessly stepping in for the former.

De Allende got a red card and Sopoaga got up, dusted himself off, and kicked New Zealand to an eight-point lead from which South Africa couldn't come back.

South Africa showed the necessary desperation and commitment and also played with greater balance in approach than was the case against the Wallabies in Bloemfontein.
