New Zealand, who beat Argentina in Buenos Aires early on Sunday morning, are now headed to South Africa for the final match in The Investec Rugby Championship, on Saturday at Soccer City in Soweto.
“We have very high standards, and there were three more tries that we should have scored," said Meyer after the Test at Loftus.
"It’s great to come home and win, and we haven’t beaten the Aussies for some time, but we have to start taking those opportunities. We would like to score more tries next week but we are aware of the challenge of playing the world champions.
"New Zealand are a very settled side. In terms of defence, they have a number of experienced players who have been in that system for ages. They’re the world champions and one of the reasons for that is their defence. It’s going to be really difficult to create and score against them.
"We will need to be more patient with ball in hand, more tactically astute. If we get scoring opportunities, we will need to make them count. We are hoping that South Africa will get behind us.”
