Both players were part of the victorious Springbok side that scored a famous away win over the All Blacks in Wellington three weeks ago.
“They don’t like losing and they would want to rectify matters. We know it’s going to be hard and physical and we will have to match that.
“We have a bit of confidence and we are in a good space but we strive to consistently play at a high level. There’s no doubt that Saturday will be an enormous test for us.”
“We’ve often spoken about what it would be like to play a Test match for the Springboks in front of a packed, sold-out Loftus. Well on Saturday we will get that chance and we are all very excited,” said Pollard.
The players will have a break on Wednesday and resume their preparations on Thursday, when Rassie Erasmus will announce his match 23 for the big clash.
