South Africa head coach Jacques Nienaber: “We made a big step-up in terms of our performance last week and having reviewed the match, there is no doubt we delivered a performance worthy of a victory,” said Nienaber as he named the team. “With that in mind we opted for continuity in our team. We are bitterly disappointed about the results in the last few weeks and everyone in our team realises the importance of finishing the Rugby Championship on a winning note. “We know it is going to take a colossal 80-minute effort, but the drive to succeed and motivation to win this weekend is as big as it gets. “Last week we stuck to our DNA and style of play, and with a little more luck we could have come away with the result, so we need to ensure that we are better at it this week.” New Zealand head coach Ian Foster: “We learnt some lessons last week. “We didn’t look after the ball as well as we could have and some of our work at the ruck wasn’t as good as we wanted. “We have to lift our performance in that area and the team is keen to get that right this weekend.”
