Boks learn from All Blacks opposition
- 13 Sep 2017
Assistant coach Johann van Graan says the Springboks have learned a thing or two from the All Blacks' opponents this season.
The British & Irish Lions, Australia and Argentina were all able to disrupt the All Blacks attack by using a rush defence that cut down their space and time with ball in hand.
When asked whether the Boks would do the same, Van Graan did not delve into specifics.
'Watching [the Lions series] from home in South Africa, it was a special series,' he said. 'They were three unbelievable Tests. It's important to learn from other opposition, and mix that with what we are strong with.
'There were key moments [in the Lions series] that made it a draw. We learned one or two things but we will just focus on our defence.'
