Tri Nations: Springboks v Australia

Victor Matfield fittingly runs out for his 100th game in front of his home crowd on Saturday, when the Springboks take on Australia for no more than pride in the Tri Nations outing, after New Zealand took the trophy home after their last minute victory over the Boks.

The Bok coach has made a few changes to the team that disappointingly lost last weekend, with the much publicised Frans Steyn return to the fullback position. Jaque Fourie also returns to the centre position for an attacking looking backline.Amongst the forwards we see no changes.

The Australians will come into this match with some confidence, after watching the All Blacks beat the Boks at altitude, and will be looking to do much the same.

Recent results:
2010: Australia won 30-13, Brisbane
2009: Australia won 21-6, Brisbane
2009: South Africa won 32-25, Perth
2009: South Africa won 29-17, Cape Town
2008: South Africa won 53-8, Johannesburg
2008: Australia won 27-15, Durban
2008: Australia won 16-9, Perth
2007: Australia won 25-17, Sydney
2007: South Africa won 22-19, Cape Town
2006: South Africa won 24-16, Johannesburg
2006: Australia won 20-18, Sydney
2006: Australia won 49-0, Brisbane.

Teams:

South Africa: 15 François Steyn, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 François Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Juan Smith, 6 Schalk Burger, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 John Smit (captain), 1 Gurthrö Steenkamp.

    The quickly LO ball must have touched somebody with the force with which it was passed into touch by the Aussies.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 158) : @KSA Shark © (Comment 163) :

    Chaps I agree Jean had a good game today but was very ordinary last week … my reasoning though is we all know what we have in Jean and think its time to give de Jongh a start especially if you consider the end of year tour ..

    Also Juan is the one centre other than Adi that can take a gap and i reckon he is better than jean at present ..certainly better than Olivier and the bonus is that once he hits a gap he passes.

    I’ll have to watch the game again but I seriously think something is not well ..it may be tactics but I don’t understand why we don’t offload in the tackle and have runners coming off the ball carrier ..was very evident last week…

    PS: MY most favourite Boks at the mo are Aplon and Juan De jongh and i’m not even a Province supporter ..lol

    I have no idea bru. Thing is most players lose form at some time. Even the ‘great’ Fourie Du Preez had one or two average seasons. It happens…
    Habs will be back but until then I reckon Aplon or Basson should start ahead of him.

  • @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 183) : Agreed.. It was very noticeable that the Boks didn’t have support runners. Often someone would break the advantage line only to be left on their own with 4 Aussies fighting for the ball. As a result our game isn’t nearly as flowing and fast paced as the Aussies, and we battle to catch them off-guard.

    I was at the game, and it was very noticeable how the Aussies were creating overlaps at will!! They’d go left, create an overlap, then go right and immediately they’d have another overlap?? How does that work? Clearly too many Boks were panting in the middle of the field and leaving it up to Hougaard to defend the wings!!!

  • I think one of our biggest weaknesses is out wide… if the Aussie forwards had realised how many overlaps they had out wide we would’ve been screwed!

    Having said that though, how the fok did Beale twinkle his way through our entire midfield defense :evil: I didn’t even rate Beale until tonight!!! Either we’re flipping useless on defence at the moment, or he’s actually got talent!

  • Interesting to watch the two backlines warming up… SA jog up and down the field passing the ball to each other like we did in Primary school… the Aussies put defenders in the way and actually put pressure on their backline’s passing during the warm-up.

    Their passing is flipping slick… just ask the fan in the stands who nearly got knocked out with that one Aussie pass into touch during the game :mrgreen:

  • Were you guys able to see on TV how the Ref got blatantly in the way of Hougaard passing to Butch whilst we were defending our line towards the end of the game :evil:

    we were less than 5 metres from our line on the RHS of the field, the forwards were setting up a dummy “pod” on the left, but it was clear Hougaard was going to pass behind the tryline to Butch for a clearance… and the Ref was standing directly in the passing line between the Srummmie and the Flyhalf… surely that’s school-boy reffing technique :evil: You don’t stand between a Scrummie and his flyhalf when they’re defending their line under ENORMOUS pressure. He was so close to Hougaard, Hougaard could’ve touched him WTF!!!!! (At least he gave us a scrum, but I think that was for something else, I don’t think he even acknowledged he was at fault?)

  • I don’t get the fascination with Aplon.
    The guy was a backup at the Stormers all season. He’s not young anymore, he is way too small for test rugby and SA has a number of talented young wings with great potential that should be looked at in place of a micro never-will-be.

    Nah dude. Habana had his drop in form and return to form already. This new dip in form is his last one and there is no return on the cards IMO.

    He has hart and he punch way above his weight. Good on him.

    But we should rather be arguing about who of v.d.Heever, Basson, Mapoe or Mvovo is the best prospect.
    Instead we waste space in the Bok team on a 27 year old rookie.

  • @fyndraai (Comment 200) :
    Have to agree with you on this, even though I think most will disagree.

    I think the fact that he is 27 indicates that he is not consistent, or can be targetted and neutralised. Good honest player, but not a WC-winner, IMO.

    That said, Mapoe has been out for yonks, Mvovo and Basson have not proven themselves in Superrugby, and vd Heever has shown himself to be good, but not special. Reckon its Habana or Jacques Fourie at the WC next year.
