Jesse Kriel: Springboks bracing for 'grind' in search of Cardiff win vs Wales on Saturday

An under-strength Wales were thumped 54-16 by the All Blacks, but were without their overseas-based players who will return for the weekend clash with the world champions. Having said that, the home side have lost skipper Alun Wyn Jones, and loose-forwards Ross Moriarty and Taulupe Faletau to injury, but Kriel says the Boks still expect a backlash as they seek a first victory in Cardiff since 2013.
