“There is never such a thing as Springboks going to an All Blacks game as favourites,” he said.
“I have never heard that in the past, you know games between the two countries are always tough. For the past couple of years now, results have been very close between us in terms of results.”
The All Blacks go into this clash after suffering a home series loss to Ireland a few weeks ago but Stick said they have capable players to turn their fortunes around.
“So, you can’t underestimate anyone irrespective of what happened to them in the previous games. The game between the All Blacks and the Springboks has always been massive and for me it’s actually the biggest game in the rugby world and history tells you that.
