South Africa will be unchanged for Saturday's Rugby Championship game against New Zealand at Eden Park.

Both sides go into the Wellington contest with three wins from three games, and the Springboks top the table with one more bonus point than their hosts.

Last weekend brought a first win in Brisbane since 1971, and coach Heyneke Meyer keeps faith with the same starting line-up and bench as South Africa aim to follow up with a first Eden Park success in 76 years.

"We had a good win last weekend, but that is in the past now," said Meyer.

"Playing the All Blacks in New Zealand is the ultimate challenge in rugby and one were very excited about facing."

South Africa: Kirchner, Le Roux, Engelbrecht, de Villiers (c), Habana, Steyn, Pienaar, Vermeulen, Alberts, Louw, van der Merwe, Etzebeth, J du Plessis, B du Plessis, Mtawarira

Replacements: Strauss, Steenkamp, Oosthuizen, Kruger, Kolisi, Vermaak, Lambie, Serfontein.
