Expected weather: The roof will be closed, which creates the impression of a dry Test. However, the roof has been open all week, a very wet and miserable week, which will make for soggy underfoot and a pitch that will cut up later in the game. High of 13°C and low of 5°C
Referee: Craig Joubert (South Africa)
Assistant referees: Jérôme Garces, Greg Garner (England)
TMO: Graham Hughes (England)

    However, a wonderful victory was soured by the disgusting behaviour of All Black hooker Andrew Hore, who displayed the worst kind of thuggish behaviour with a cheap shot on Welsh lock Bradley Davies – which resulted in the No.4 having to leave the field after being knocked out cold with a punch from behind.

    How does he get away with it?

    Looked a lot like what Burger Geldenhuis did to Andy Dalton.
