    Australia come into the match looking for their first win of the Rugby Championship, after suffering back-to-back losses to New Zealand in their opening matches of the competition.

    South Africa, on the other hand, have taken two wins against Argentina to start their campaign, and look to be the side most capable of challenging the All Blacks for the title.

    A win on the road over the Wallabies would help them take the title of being at least the second-best Southern hemisphere side.
