All Blacks captain Ardie Savea says it is scary to think what the under-fire Springboks will bring to the contest tonight when the southern hemisphere superpowers meet for the 100th time.
World champions South Africa go into the Rugby Championship test on the back of successive losses to Australia and having just lost the world No. 1 ranking to New Zealand.
Savea says the Springboks are under pressure with their previous results, under pressure back home in their own country and it's a scary thought.
He says they all know how the South Africans are like and play and they will want to dominate the match tonight.
The 27-year-old captain says it's something he hopes he is ready for.
Savea also revealed that he was unable to feel his body the day after his first encounter with the Springboks in 2016 and expects no less of a physical test tonight.
The All Blacks will meet the Springboks at 7.05pm today and the Wallabies face Argentina at 10.05 tonight.
