All Blacks expecting physical, angry South African side in Rugby Championship clash

Jerome Kaino back with All Blacks squad ahead of South Africa Test

After struggling for 50 minutes to get on top of Argentina in New Plymouth, before winning 39-22, Hansen was blunt in his assessment.

The Newlands Test will be the first visit of the All Blacks to Cape Town since 2008 when they triumphed 19-0.

"But it's a tank that's got plenty in it and our job now is to bring that out, and his job is to work on his game and get better and better and reach his potential", Hansen said.

"We over-committed to some and then we became thin on others so that gave us slow ball generally with messy phase play so the breakdowns always key".

Only 22,000 tickets went on sale for the clash of arch rivals South Africa and New Zealand and were snapped up 60 minutes after becoming available nationwide, officials said.

The Pumas, who had suffered two heavy losses to South Africa, took a 16-15 lead into halftime after flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez scored a try when the All Blacks botched a defensive lineout under pressure.

Boffelli added another penalty after 43 minutes and Barrett's nightmare continued when he was sinbinned 10 minutes into the second half after the All Blacks had been penalised four times in quick succession.

This year has got off to a better start for South Africa though, they won their opening two matches against Argentina and drew 23-all with Australia in Perth on the weekend.

Allister Coetzee's side were humiliated twice previous year by the All Blacks, losing 41-13 in Christchurch before they were thumped 57-15 in Cape Town as Hansen's team ran in nine tries.

"They'll be coming here with a bit of anger, and with the skill and physicality they're playing with, I'm sure it's going to be a good spectacle".

"I don't think he's the finished product. They've got a few similar numbers across the park (compared to the Lions) so they're starting to trend the same way as the Lions which is an exciting brand of footy".
