Meyer blames 'inexperienced' side
Springboks coach Heyneke Meyer says his young side had no chance against the world champions.
JOHANNESBURG - The All Blacks turned things around in the second half to secure an impressive 32-16 win over the Springboks at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Their four tries to one victory ensured they not only remain unbeaten since winning the World Cup in 2011, but also beat the Boks both home and away this season.
Springboks coach Heyneke Meyer said you cannot afford to give this All Black squad an inch of space.
"If you give them half a chance, they score. I think that's the big difference between them and any team in the world. They force you to make mistakes and then they capitalise on that."
The New Zealand backline seemed light years ahead of their South African counter parts.
Meyer said that it is purely down to inexperience.
"Johan Goosen was injured and suddenly Elton Jantjies is there. He has to play at 10 for the first time. If you look at all the tries, they are mistakes that we shouldn't have done."
The win handed Richie McCaw his 100th test victory, amazingly from 112 matches.
The All Black skipper said it would not have been possible without his team mates.
"I'm thankful to my teammates. I've been lucky to play alongside a good bunch of men."
Meanwhile, the Wallabies finished second in the Rugby Championship.
