"For the players it's not a 'revenge' game. I've got the utmost respect for the All Blacks and their coaching staff; there's mutual respect," Meyer told Sport24.co.za.
"So there's no revenge to [talk of]. We weren't good enough on the day in the away game, and things happened that were beyond our control.
"We just want to go out there and...the great thing about this team is we don't play on emotion. We set ourselves very, very high standards and want to become the best in the world."
Meyer said it would be a big test for his side which had shown improvements against Australia and Argentina and he wanted to see similar improvement against the All Blacks.
"Obviously it would be great to win the game and [even greater] if we could win the Championship. But we don't talk about revenge game," he said.
"We just want to go out there and make our country proud, put our bodies on the line. It's just another game...although a very big one for us."
