Whatever happens tomorrow night, the All Blacks and Springboks hope to face each other again at the business end of the Rugby World Cup.

Hosts Japan face off against Russia in the first game tonight.

New Zealand kicks off its campaign tomorrow night against South Africa.

South African sports commentator Brenden Nel told Mike Hosking regardless of the outcome tomorrow, it won't stop any momentum for either team.

"The whole country of South Africa will come to a standstill to watch this game."

Former All Black Ian Jones says tomorrow's match is a key game.

“No matter what other teams tell you, when the All Blacks get on a roll, we look pretty strong.”
