Malherbe said he is expecting a dangerous All Blacks who will be highly motivated to prove doubters wrong and get back to winning ways.
“They are a very dangerous side who can never be underestimated,” said the experienced Stormers tighthead prop who will be a key member of the pack.
“The All Blacks will always be a formidable side. They had two results not going their way recently against the Irish, but we are not reading too much into that because they will be desperate to change their situation.”
