WELLINGTON – South Africa will be looking to repeat last year’s feat when they defeated New Zealand for the first time at Wellington's Wespac Stadium.
The All Blacks and the Springboks do battle in a Rugby Championship clash at Wellington on Saturday, with the South Africans still remembering last year’s epic 36-34 victory over their arch-rivals at this venue.
This is the same venue where the South Africans lost a Rugby World Cup quarter-final against Australia in 2011.
For the All Blacks, though, the venue won’t hold too many good memories because, in that defeat to the Boks on September 15 last year, no NZ team had previously conceded 36 points against any opposition at home.
The five tries the All Blacks conceded was also a record against South Africa at this venue.
