Dagg expecting tough time from Boks

11:25 am on 20 August 2011

Fullback Israel Dagg is one of four returning All Blacks who have just one chance to impress in tomorrow morning's Tri Nations Rugby test in South Africa.

The Durban match is the first and only time Dagg, wing Isaia Toeava, centre Richard Kahui and prop Tony get to stake their claim on the black jersey before coaches Graham Henry and co name their world cup squad in Brisbane on Tuesday.

Dagg says the Springboks are likely to run the ball more than they have in recent seasons but he says their kicking game's still a great weapon.
