Springboks face the All Blacks in a tough test on Saturday

On Saturday, South Africa's Springboks will face the All Blacks in a Rugby Championship Test.

Former Springbok flyhalf and Supersport analyst, Naas Botha tells the Midday Report standin host, Ray White that the Springboks appear to have upped their game in their last match played last week.

Botha says it is a pity and a blow to the Springboks to see scrumhalf, Ross Cronje being withdrawn from Saturday's team because of an illness. Botha adds that he has hope Francois Hougaard, who replaces Cronje will play well.

New Zealand are going to score tries tomorrow.
