Tagged with : ,

Today could just be the day when the Boks clinch the Tri-Nations title for only the third time in history.

Will the Aussies bounce back and avoid the ignominy of a Tri-Nations whitewash at the hands of the Boks? Or will they lose their third match this year to the tourists, as well as their fifth overall in the Tri-Nations?

Will the Boks be able to keep on winning – or, at the very least, secure the single championship point they require to take the Tri-Nations cup?

Kick-off in Brisbane is at 12h05.

Teams:

Australia: 15 James O’Connor, 14 Lachie Turner, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Berrick Barnes, 11 Drew Mitchell, 10 Matt Giteau, 9 Will Genia, 8 George Smith (captain), 7 David Pocock, 6 Rocky Elsom, 5 Mark Chisholm, 4 James Horwill, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Benn Robinson.
Replacements: 16 Stephen Moore, 17 Pek Cowan, 18 Dean Mumm, 19 Wycliff Palu, 20 Luke Burgess, 21 Quade Cooper, 22 Peter Hynes.

South Africa: 15 Ruan Pienaar, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Fourie du Preez, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Juan Smith, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Bakkies Botha, 3 John Smit (captain), 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Jannie du Plessis, 18 Danie Rossouw, 19 Schalk Burger, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Adi Jacobs, 22 Frans Steyn.

Referee: Wayne Barnes (England)
Assistant referees: Bryce Lawrence (New Zealand), Vinny Munro (New Zealand)
TMO: Chris Pollock (New Zealand)

  • Habs saves a try tackling Turner into touch ON the line. :cool:

    Then he follows up taking Gits down 10m from the line with an open line.

    Spoils his performance with an awful drop kick.
