The Iceman cometh - and the future is All Black for the Springboks!

New Zealand are back at full strength for this weekend's Newlands clash - but you can also bank on Isaia Toeava making a real impact from the bench.

An encore may just be what the doctor ordered as the All Blacks named an unchanged line-up aside from Isaia “Ice” Toeava replacing Anthony Tuitavake on the bench.
On the other hand, the Springboks have made some enforced, rest and form changes with Andries Bekker coming in at lock for the injured Bakkies Botha, world-class players Fourie du Preez, Schalk Burger and Bryan Habana returning, and veteran Percy Montgomery taking over at custodian for his 100th game – the first South African to do so – ironically on his home ground.
The Boks put on a belated celebration for their former president Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday with a lop-sided victory over Argentina last weekend.
