New Zealand’s All Blacks and South Africa’s Springboks are ready to face each other for the rugby match at the Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg on the 5th of October, 2014. Ellis Park is the home ground for Springboks but then it seems that All Blacks are going to use this fact against Springboks.
No doubt that the Ellis Park stadium is extremely intimidating and daunting but then the All Blacks are of the opinion that they can win over the crowd in a convenient manner.
In order to win over the crowd, All Blacks realize that they have to maintain their composure especially in the first twenty minutes of the match and slowly try to increase their score.
If the New Zealand team is able to do this then Ellis Park stadium will turn out to be just like any other game venue and Springboks will be caught up in an uncomfortable situation.
Richie McCaw (captain of All Blacks) seems pretty confident before the match against Springboks. His confidence might have stemmed from the fact that the team had performed well and won the match against Argentina’s Pumas last week. The skipper of All Blacks is noticeably calm this time.
McCaw said that everyone in the team is focused and is aware of the importance of this challenge. All the players have trained sufficiently as well and are really looking forward to perform exceptionally well against the Springboks.
Richie McCaw is also going to make a milestone record of making the 134th appearance for All Blacks and is going to surpass the record of Colin Meads.
However, McCaw has made it clear that he is eagerly waiting for the match against Springboks because he wants All Blacks to deliver a good performance and even win the match if possible. He will think about the milestone later.
