All Blacks vs Springboks: All you need to know about the Rugby Championship test

Ian Foster’s future as All Blacks manager will hang in the balance when the Men in Black take on the Springboks at Emirates Airlines Park in Johannesburg in the second leg of the Rugby Championship.

Foster is under enormous pressure to keep his job after suffering five defeats in six Test matches, a barren run that saw the All Blacks fall to fifth in the World Rugby Rankings, their lowest ranking on record.

New Zealand rugby boss Mark Robinson previously refused to endorse Foster beyond the first two games in South Africa, meaning the ax could fall unless he can inspire a dramatic turnaround.

It would be a monumental rebound if the All Blacks secure a much-needed win in Johannesburg. They are coming off their worst defeat to the Springboks in 94 years after losing the opener 26-10.

The All Blacks haven’t dropped their opening two games of the Rugby Championship, or Tri-Nations as it was previously known, since 1998.

Foster resisted wholesale changes, making just four changes to his starting XV for the second game against the Boks.

Props Ethan de Groot and Tyrel Lomax bolster the scrum, Shannon Frizell replaces Akira Ioane on the blind flank and Richie Mo’unga gets his first start of the year in the first five with Beauden Barrett dropping to the bench.

South Africa were forced into a late reshuffle in the top tier after starting hooker Bongi Mbonambi suffered a knee injury in training. He was replaced by the inexperienced Joseph Dweba.
