All you need to know ahead of the All Blacks’ clash against the Springboks at QLD Country Bank Stadium in Townsville, kickoff at 7.05pm:
All Blacks head coach Ian Foster has restored his full-strength lineup for Saturday’s 100th test against South Africa, making eight changes to the mainly second-string starting XV he fielded against Argentina last week.
Foster was able to take advantage of his squad’s depth to rest most of his frontline players and still come away with a 36-13 win over the Pumas which left the All Blacks unbeaten after four matches in the Rugby Championship.
