Cape Town - The Springboks have made their way to Auckland, New Zealand,
and will face the All Blacks feeling confident ahead of their Rugby
Championship Test at Albany this Saturday.
South Africa's performances have improved dramatically in
2017 and coach Allister Coetzee explained why.
"The big thing is the environment has changed
completely," Coetzee told NewsHub.co.nz.
"In any high-performance team sport you have to have a
great team environment and I'm pleased to say that you can see how the players
play for each other.
"They're enjoying it and we're growing and learning at
every test match."
Coetzee also said the Springboks are experiencing a similar
transition period to what the All Blacks experienced before winning the 2011
"These are two teams that know each other very well.
"The big thing about this test coming up is that you've
got to make sure you can execute on the day.
"Whether you've got weaknesses, somehow you can hang
yourself up if you don't get it right.
"I don't see any weaknesses in the All Blacks side. I
think they are vulnerable, but you still have to be at your best to exploit
