South Africa’s Malcolm Marx fends off a tackle against New Zealand

New Zealand battle South Africa in the rugby championship to bounce back after a brutal spell under Ian Foster. It was five Test losses in six, while the All Blacks were beaten 26-10 by the Springboks in Mbombela last week, increasing the pressure for that Test in Johannesburg. It was the biggest win for the Boks over their Southern Hemisphere rivals since 1928.

The All Blacks have plummeted to fifth in the world rankings with a demoralizing first home defeat in the Test series since 1994 after Ireland’s sensational triumph last month. Another defeat could prompt a change in coaching and with 13 months to go before the World Cup there is great urgency to rediscover the edge that has made New Zealand one of the dominant forces in the sport.

“We know the pressure is on and we feel it,” Foster said. “But our job is to look at our performance and how we can improve it. I understand the frustration, but that doesn’t change what we need to do here. There’s no point in sulking about it for too long.” Follow the full build and action below, which promises to be a compelling test match:

Siya Kolisi is delighted to be reuniting with the loose trio that won the World Cup

South Africa captain Siya Kolisi can’t wait to be reunited with his loose trio partners who won the Rugby World Cup against New Zealand on Saturday, the first time since winning the William Webb Ellis trophy three years ago.

The Boks host the All Blacks in a second Rugby Championship Test at their stronghold of Ellis Park and are looking to build on their 26-10 win at Nelspruit last weekend, which was their biggest win over New Zealand in 94 years.

Kolisi will fight alongside fellow flankers Pieter-Steph du Toit and Duane Vermeulen for the first time since the 2019 World Cup final, where they were instrumental in the Boks’ 32-12 win over England in Yokohama.

Injuries have largely separated them so far, but they will be a handful on offense and defense for the All Blacks and strong on the breakdown.

“It’s the same schedule as during the World Cup and we expect the same from each other,” Kolisi told reporters on Saturday. “No matter who I play with, I have to deliver on the same level.

“My job isn’t changing, but having someone like Duane back on the team with that experience… I need as much experience as possible on the field around me.”

All Blacks legend Sean Fitzpatrick calls for calm

All Blacks legend Sean Fitzpatrick had previously called for calm as Ian Foster was set to be sacked following their third Test loss to Ireland.

“Do you have a team capable of winning the World Cup? From what we’ve seen over the past two weeks, you’d doubt it,” Fitzpatrick said Sky Sports.

“But the All Blacks won’t go from a world-class team to a non-world-class team overnight.”

Julian Savea defends Ian Foster after criticism and pressure on All Blacks manager

“In a country where mental health is a big problem — where 72 percent of suicides are men and a high rate of depression among men, you’d think people would be a little kinder,” Savea said on Twitter.

“And think about their words before making remarks about a person’s integrity, looks and character, especially if you don’t know them personally.”

“I am ashamed that a person here in New Zealand should be treated like this and drawn into the media.”

South Africa vs. New Zealand: Team News

Jacques Nienaber made four changes to his starting XV as a Springboks weapon for back-to-back wins over the All Blacks. Faf de Klerk was beaten cold in the early stages of last week’s win, so Jaden Hendrikse starts in the scrum half with Jess Kriel on the right wing in place of Kurt-Lee Arendse, who has been suspended for four weeks after his dangerous tackle on Beauden Barrett. Two-thirds of the front row has changed, with Ox Nche and Joseph Dweba starting at Loosehead Prop and Hooker, respectively.

The big news for New Zealand is that Bauden Barrett is surprisingly dropped on the bench while Richie Mo’unga starts at half-time. There are three changes in the pack as props Ethan de Groot and Tyrel Lomax and blindside flanker Shannon Frizell are all promoted after coming on as substitutes last week. Tighthead prop master Fletcher Newell could make his All Blacks debut after being named among the subs.
