This weekend is a biggie. The Springboks, hurting from their 57-0 punishment by the All Blacks have a lot to prove on Saturday when they tackle the Wallabies in Bloemfontein.
The Wallabies, following a good win over Argentina a fortnight ago, will be itching to knock one further over the Boks, as the two last drew in Perth in Round 3 of the tournament.
Looking back to last year’s encounter in the Republic, South Africa managed to edge the Aussies thanks to some calm kicking by Morne Steyn, which kept Allister Coetzee’s men in the game.
Of course, not many of the players who featured in that game will be taking to the field this Saturday; which should make for an interesting encounter.
Who do you think will take the prize on Saturday? You can place your bets on the Springboks v Wallabies game here.
