The Bokke head to Perthfontein for the first away match of their campaign.Will Ruan Pienaar inspire some long-overdue running rugby from his new position of fullback? Will the Boks again win easily thanks to the boot of Morne Steyn?

Or will the Wallabies show that hey have some bite to go with their bark and find a way to get one over the Boks, who are overwhelming favourites for this game?

  • @klempie (Comment 5) :
    This is the final test to prove the authenticity of the Tiger Woods theory. Has Ru got the mental capacity to withstand being stuffed around contineously, If he comes through this undscathed then he will indeed be able to be mentioned in the same breath, well at least until Conrad Jantjes and / or Zane Kirchner are ready for the fullback position.

  • Seems the “boring” tag has stung the Boks cos they are ALL OVER the Aussies.

    du Preez sniping run to the line after a quick tap penalty.
