JOHANNESBURG - Springbok player Johan Goosen will undergo a test on Wednesday to see if he will take up kicking duties against the All Blacks on Saturday.

The young number 10, who controversially replaced Morne Steyn last weekend for the Test against the Wallabies, is suffering with a bruised heel and only managed two kicks in the match.

Meyer said they will know the outcome later.

"Goosen will kick this afternoon and then we will make a decision after training. He hasn't trained for the past two days."

Following their emphatic win over Australia last weekend, Meyer has named an unchanged side for their clash at FNB Stadium in Soweto.

Meyer knows the All Blacks will continuously ask questions about the Springbok defence.

He explained what his team learnt from the test in Dunedin.

"I think they underestimated us because we struggled throughout the first half of the season, while they were on a winning streak. I think it's going to be more difficult this time."

The All Blacks have won all their Rugby Championship games.

Kickoff is at 5pm.
