All Blacks treating Springboks match as must win

4:10 pm on 10 September 2012

The All Blacks are treating this weekend's match against South Africa in Dunedin as a must win before they start the arduous away leg of their Rugby Championship campaign.

The men in black lead the competition with three wins from three games and victory this weekend would go a long way to securing the competition's inaugural title.

New Zealand also lost to the Springboks the last time they played in Dunedin and assistant coach Ian Foster says it's vital that the All Blacks win on Saturday, before they leave for games in Argentina and South Africa.
