Jones said: "We know South Africa are going to come at us, and we're going to come at them even harder.

"I've got no doubt that they'll play better, but we'll play better - we will play with no fear.

"We're confident in the game we have and we're confident in the way we've prepared.

"We're ready to go. Hang on to your seats, because it's the last dip of the rollercoaster."
