All you need to know: All Blacks vs Springboks - Rugby Championship, round one

All you need to know ahead of the first test between the All Blacks and the Springboks at Mbombela Stadium in South Africa (kickoff at 3.05am):

There seems to be precious little for the All Blacks to cling on to as the world's most successful rugby team tries to climb out of its worst slump in 24 years.

Coach Ian Foster's job is hanging by a thread and his two most senior assistant coaches have already been cut loose, both fired following the historic series loss at home to Ireland last month. Captain Sam Cane is under scrutiny for his leadership and there are also calls for him to be replaced.

New Zealand's media has turned on its favorite sports team — and maybe the country's most revered institution — by relentlessly hammering home for the last two weeks that four losses in five games is more than a poor run of form when it comes to the All Blacks. It's a crisis.

The last time New Zealand had a worse set of results was in 1998, the early years of professional rugby.

New Zealand return to action for the first time since the series defeat to Andy Farrell’s Ireland

A year out from a World Cup, the All Blacks would normally be fine-tuning combinations and building belief with a string of thumping wins but instead find themselves mired in their biggest crisis of confidence in decades.

Humbled by northern hemisphere opponents on tour last season, the last traces of the All Blacks' aura of invincibility vanished in the home series defeat by Ireland, leaving a success-spoiled fan base in rare anguish.

Ian Foster's men will soon find out how deep the corrosion has spread when they defend their Rugby Championship title against emboldened southern hemisphere rivals.

For once - and to the relief of Australian fans - the All Blacks cannot ease into their work with back-to-back matches against a Wallabies team who bear psychological scarring from decades of Bledisloe Cup beatdowns
