    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.

      Who cares. Chieka and the aru have destroyed my passion for the game. I’m sure there’s a good movie on at 8pm tonight.

      On as the same time as the West Coast Eagles final. After what the EARU has done to rugby in WA there is next to no chance of any casual fans turning up.
