The Springbok captain is in defiant mood ahead of Saturday's test against the All Blacks in Christchurch.
Speaking at Christchurch airport after arriving in New Zealand from Australia, Vos said: "What we saw in Sydney on Saturday evening was high quality rugby which opened up both defences.
"We have taken a lot of flack back in South Africa after our defeat to Australia in Melbourne, but that has only made us more determined to perform well and beat the All Blacks. You have to be in their face defensively to be competitive and that is what we have to work to achieve on Saturday afternoon.
"In the first half of the test against Australia we got through their defensive lines and scored some good tries so there is the potential in the side to put pressure on the All Blacks."
