South Africa's Mtawarira to miss New Zealand test for

The team suffered a first loss on home soil this year when they were edged 25-24 by the All Blacks, who finished the Rugby Championship undefeated and retained the title they won in 2016.

They did, showing world champion composure to take everything a desperate South Africa could throw at them before replying late with a try by fullback Damian McKenzie and a game-clinching penalty by replacement flyhalf Lima Sopoaga.

"I'd say that affected the tackle count too because we made a hell of a lot of them so I'm not sure why we didn't kick it out, but we'll talk about that come another day". "We just needed two points".

Those odds are kind to the hosts as New Zealand have inflicted massive victories of 41-13, 57-15 and 57-0 over the Springboks in the three Tests Allister Coetzee has been at the helm of the national team.

Australia and South Africa also gave us some exciting matches, in both of their fixtures against each other, the sides couldn't be separated and they had to settle for a 23-23 and 27-27 draw in Perth and Bloemfontein, respectively.

"We saw that we have to be in the right mind set when we play them, otherwise we're vulnerable".

"We had them under pressure at times, but you can not give the ball away against New Zealand", Coetzee added.

"Whilst we've left some people out that people might've thought might have got a game, or we could've given someone else a rest, there's a bigger picture and we know where we're going with the rest and stuff". We can play ball in hand as well.

"To do that you've got to play a good team".
