Wellington will host the eagerly anticipated rematch with a young, talented Springbok side. 2017 in Cape Town proved that the South Africans can bounce back after defeat and compete with the All Blacks, only losing by a single point. The Springboks would have developed confidence in their game plan and will hope to replicate their performance, ultimately with a different result.
The All Blacks will no doubt be keen to secure a win on home soil and gain that psychological advantage. Remember these teams will meet in Japan in 2019 where both were drawn in Pool B. The prospect of a World Cup match up will add another element to the game. Prepare for nothing short of a physical game.
