Steyn will be missed more than Carter - Boks

Springboks coach Peter de Villiers says they will feel the loss of utility back Francois Steyn more than the All Blacks will miss Daniel Carter.

Going into the quarter-finals, the South Africans are also waiting for fitness assessments on first-choice wingers JP Pietersen and Bryan Habana.

England have similar concerns about first five Jonny Wilkinson and centre Mike Tindall.
