The All Blacks coach Graham Henry says he expects their first Tri-Nations Test in South Africa in a couple of weeks to be their biggest challenge of the series.

Henry says they'll spend all of next week acclimatising at altitude in Johannesburg.

Meanwhile the Springboks have recalled three players for the final leg of the series - the previously out of favour fullback Francois Steyn, and JP Pietersen and Juan Smith, who've recovered from injuries.
