A Super Saturday of rugby action kicks off with a double bill of Rugby Championship before heading straight into the Currie Cup action. To start us off is probably the most important match of the day as South Africa take on the Wallabies in Perth.

The Wallabies have made late changes to their team, Tatafu Polota Nau coming in for the injured Stephen Moore, with Saia Fainga’a coming onto the bench. There is also a debutant in the backline with Dominic Shipperley getting his first taste of international action. Australia have lost two matches against New Zealand so far and will be keen to get some points at home against the Springboks.

The Boks have had their fair share of criticism after their disappointing draw to Argentina two weeks ago and will look to make amends against Australia, a match that will all but certainly determine who finishes second to the All Blacks in the this year’s Championship. Ruan Pienaar will relish a start in the 9 jersey while Francois Hougaard will have to prove his many talents playing on the wing for the first time in a while. Juandré Kruger will also look to cement his place in the team following the dropping of Andries Bekker.

Australia: 15 Kurtley Beale, 14 Dominic Shipperley, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Berrick Barnes, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia (captain), 8 Radike Samo, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Dave Dennis, 5 Nathan Sharpe, 4 Sitaleki Timani, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Tatafu Polota Nau, 1 Benn Robinson.

Replacements: 16 Saia Fainga’a, 17 James Slipper, 18 Scott Higginbotham, 19 Liam Gill, 20 Nick Phipps, 21 Mike Harris, 22 Anthony Fainga’a.

South Africa: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Bryan Habana, 13 Jean de Villiers (captain), 12 Francois Steyn, 11 Francois Hougaard, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Ruan Pienaar, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Juandré Kruger, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.

Replacements: 16 Tiaan Liebenberg, 17 Patric Cilliers, 18 Flip van der Merwe, 19 Francois Louw, 20 Johan Goosen, 21 Patrick Lambie, 22 Lwazi Mvovo.

  • My feeling is Quade Cooper and Will Genia will tip the scales the Aussies way. Together against SA they have always been a tough mountain to climb in stopping their magic. I also think Morne may cost us this game by playing into the Aussies hands but HM won’t see it that way.

    Here´s to hoping like hell.

  • Idiotic rugby from both sides. Aus looking by far the better side, though. :cry:

    And just as I say that we score a great try after going through the phases AND getting over the advantage line for a change.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 28) : I disagree, he has made one good grubber. Otherwise he hasnt touched the ball apart from being mashed by Samo. I dont blame him, bok tactics dont suite a player who likes the ball in his hands and doesnt want to chase up and unders all day.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 35) : True, he is busier than Mvovo. Mvovo tends to wait for the ball. SA need to start having more faith in their backs, and coming up with some new moves. Its just too ponderous at the moment and Mornes decision making is slow. His first instinct is to look to kick, therefore when he doesnt he has delayed play by a split second thinking about it. At international level, thats effectively the end of the backlines advantage..

  • Our backline is clueless. Great opportunity to score with the ball just having to go through the hands and F Steyn passes a long skip pass to Habana, who was standing still waiting for the ball and cover defense to get to him.

    It´s hard to see the difference between a forward and back when they receive the ball in the phase play. The only exception Hougaard.

    Plus when Mvovo had an opportunity he cut off JdV space closing off a great opportunity for SA to score…

    But when we have a strong midfield, then don’t have your flyhalf launching up-and-unders from set phases when you’re in midfield. You RUN THAT!!!! That’s Heyneke and co. being stupid, and Morne not being able to think for himself, while not having the skills to play differently it looks like.

    And to then bring Goosen & Lambie on when the game has already been lost… that’s just a slap in the face for all the supporters.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 148) : I would rather have a guy that CAN actually make a break and distribute than a one-dimensional donkey like F Steyn. That charged down kick of his in our 22 was the perfect time to run it out, because the defense was thin out wide. @hendrikp (Comment 149) : They had a golden opportunity to create space when we spread it wide from a lineout we won off Aus ball and what did they do with it? We also had another great chance to score when between FSteyn, M Steyn, de Villers and Habana they couldn´t do a basic thing like let the ball go through the hands to score. Instead passed a long skip to a standing Habana.
    I agre the up-and-under thing is pathetic, but we need a creative midfield if we´re going to change the game plan.

    Morné was rubbish on attack, rubbish on tactical kicking, rubbish on up & under garbage game plan, and a coward on defense.

    HM is rubbish at strategy, rubbish at game plan, rubbish at reading the opposition and rubbish with his selection policy.

    All in all, we need a pretty big sturdy broom to sweep 7 months (not sure how long exactly, not sure I care) of HM’s coaching poo out of Springbok rugby.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 152) : de Jongh has a very good step. He is the type of midfielder that can change a game if the opposition defense loses concentration for just a second. Our current duo couldn´t spot a gap AND use it if it was dressed in a pink tutu and shouting at them through a Rammstein live concert sound system.

    Etzebeth wasn’t bad ,but I still feel he needs another season of super rugby along with Goosen.

    Morne Steyn is woeful at flyhalf .

    Alberts and Vermulen arent as effective as they should be at carrying.

    Jean Deysel is playing some dam good rugby.

  • @Franshark (Comment 159) : I think a combo of Goosen at ten and Lambie at 15 will offer a ton of options to coaches able to see past 1 dimension.

    Having different moves where Lambie and Goosen rotate standing at 10. On defense I’d have Lambie at 10 and Goosen at 15 because of Goosen’s monster boot and Lambie’s ability to always land a tackle.

    Then have Goosen at 10 for razzle-dazzle attack and Lambie at ten for pin-point distribution attack.

    Now just need a technical coach able to mastermind this and we’ll have the best backline in world rugby. We do however have some serious dimensional problems at center.
