They've often found ways to live with any deficiencies that creep up and through their scrum guru Mike Cron‚ they've often got over their issues to dominate teams.
Kitshoff said they'll have to work hard to get the better of the All Black pack.
“We've done a lot of prep this week and done a lot of work on our scrum.
"I know I've been out of Super Rugby in the past couple of years and I don't know Laulala and Hames that well‚” Kitshoff said.
“We've got a strong bench and we just have to pick up the pace and keep the tempo of the game going.
"The All Blacks always pick the game up in the last 20 minutes‚ so it's going to be important to stick in the game and grinding it out until the last minute.”
