"We really, as a team, believe we can win," - those were the words of Springbok Coach Heyneke Meyer about breaking the voodoo that has hampered the South Africans in matches against the Wallabies in Queensland. And win they did - in a stunning 38-12 victory.

That focus is now turned to Eden Park - and beating the All Blacks there, something the Springboks have not done since 1937. Let's not make it easy for them - Eden Park needs to be full of noisy All Blacks fans, squeezing every last drop out of home crowd advantage.

With the Springboks sitting top of the championship table, fans at Eden Park are going to be in for a real cracker on Saturday night. Make sure you don't miss out.

With a 48,000 capacity, there are still 2000 tickets available - adults from $75 kids from $25.

The two great sides have played each other nine times at Eden Park, with the All Blacks leading the ledger with six wins.

The Springboks best recent result was an 18-18 draw in 1994, the same year New Zealand last lost at the venue (to France).

South Africa's last victory at the ground was in 1937, while they were also successful in their 1921 visit.
