Boks won't run everything

Johannesburg - Don’t expect the Springboks to run everything at the All Blacks in their Rugby Championship showdown at Ellis Park on Saturday.

According to the website, rather expect a sustained, varied attack to search for the bonus point victory needed to win the game.

The New Zealanders are excellent counter-attackers and will punish mistakes harshly, as the Boks found out in Auckland.

The Boks know this all too well. Neglect the basics against a team like the All Blacks and pretty soon the bonus point won’t be the goal, but survival.
