McCaw braced for a reaction from hurt Springboks
Saturday 17 July 2010
New Zealand's captain Richie McCaw warned his side to be prepared for a Springbok backlash in this morning's Tri Nations Test in Wellington.
The All Blacks were comfortable 32-12 winners over the world champions in Auckland last week, running in four tries at Eden Park, but McCaw expects South Africa to up their game following that hiding.
"We've got to make sure we match that [performance]," he said yesterday. "They didn't get the chance to put on the pressure they have done in the past so I'm sure they'll be looking to do that but we've got to make sure we don't allow that to happen."
The All Blacks have been very impressive so far this season when they have been able to secure the quick ball that has allowed them to get their offloading game going.
