    Saturday 17 July, 2010 17:35 NZST (12:35 TST)

    This looks to be another titanic battle between two rugby giants, world number one New Zealand and world number two South Africa. Last week the All Blacks handily beat the Springboks 32 to 12 at Eden Park.

    This week the action shifts to Westpac Stadium in Wellington. The Springboks look to get their campaign in the positive whilst the All Blacks would dearly love to see the South Africans sent off these chilly shores without any competition points.

    The Springboks will be without lock Bakkies Botha who will has been suspended from all forms of rugby for nine weeks for his head-butt on All Blacks' halfback Jimmy Cowan. To be fair, the nuggety halfback probably didn't feel it as the hard Southland man has likely had bottles, bar stools and whatnot cracked over his head with more force.

    On the injury front the All Blacks will be without Richard Kahui with shoulder troubles (looks to go under the knife and will likely be out for the year), Jimmy Cowan (not his head, but a hamstring), and Joe Rokocoko (a hammy as well). The All Blacks will bring in Alby Mathewson as a backup halfback and Zac Guilford to cover for winger Joe Rokocoko.

    The Springboks will sport a basically unchanged side with Roussow coming in for the banned Bakkies Botha.

    You would have been disappointed in your Springboks, Tommy. They looked pretty clueless. Peter de Villiers' strategy of kick the high ball and chase with every possession hasn't worked out too well the past couple of weeks. It worked last year, but this year the strategy is a damp squib. I would think that the Springbok brain trust would have to get together this week and figure out another tactic. They're going into Brisbane next week and the Springboks don't exactly dominate there. In their the Springboks favour, the Wallabies, althought well rested, may be a bit under-baked from lack of game time. The Springboks should have the edge up front against the Wallabies and ought to exploit that.

    If the Springboks go down in Brisbane there will be some hard questions to be answered. Should PdV be sacked one year out from the 2011 Rugby World Cup?

    Agree about the kicking. Old habits die hard. It even goes back further. It started with Naas Botha.

    They can see it now...they peaked last year and their best forwards will be even more over the hill next year...I hate to say it but perhaps Henry and his team have learned to time their buildup better
