2010 Tri-Nations - Game 7: South Africa V Australia Tri_nations

South Africa host Australia in the 7th Tri-Nations match. New Zealand sealed the 2010 Tri-Nations last weekend after a nail biting win over the Boks, so this game is a bit of a 'dead rubber'.

This will be Springboks' Lock, Victor Matfield's 100th game for his country, only a week after their captain John Smit reached this impressive milestone. Expect the Boks to give it their all for this legend of the game.

If South Africa can play like they did last week then expect them to put a decent score up against the Wallabies. The backlines pretty much even each other out but I feel the Springboks forward pack is much stronger than the Wallabies. My tip is South Africa 1-12. I don't think the Wallabies have what it takes to get a win in South Africa this year.

SPRINGBOKS
15-Francois Steyn, 14-JP Pietersen, 13-Jaque Fourie, 12-Jean de Villiers, 11-Bryan Habana, 10-Morne Steyn, 9-Francois 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, 1-Gurthro Steenkamp.

Reserves: 16-Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17-CJ van der Linde, 18-Danie Rossouw, 19-Ryan Kankowski, 20-Enrico Januarie, 21-Butch James, 22-Juan de Jongh.

Francois Steyn finally gets called back into the Boks and will start at Fullback. Also making a return is Jaque Fourie, who missed the last couple of games.

WALLABIES
15 Kurtley Beale, 14 James O'Connor, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Matt Giteau, 11 Drew Mitchell, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Richard Brown, 7 David Pocock, 6 Rocky Elsom (captain), 5 Nathan Sharpe, 4 Dean Mumm, 3 Salesi Ma'afu, 2 Saia Faainga, 1 Benn Robinson.

Replacements: 16 Stephen Moore, 17 James Slipper, 18 Ben McCalman, 19 Scott Higginbotham, 20 Luke Burgess, 21 Berrick Barnes, 22 Anthony Faainga.

Quade Cooper makes his return which pushes Giteau out to second-five and A. Faainga to the bench. Other than that the only changes are to the bench where Ben McCalman and Scott Higginbottom replace Rob Simmons and Matt Hodgson and Cameron Shepherd is left out of the 22.

Springboks will win in a tough contest. Don’t think I will get up for it as I expect a boring boring game.

Cant say im too excited for it though, not much else to play for. To win in South Africa would be nice though.

Finished with South Africa winning it 44-31. Sure was an exciting game but far too many errors from both teams, and at times the defense was appalling.

Francois Steyn's return to the Springboks wasn't a good one, his kicking game definitely letting him down. Francois Hougaard had another awesome performance and deserved man of the match, he assisted in a few tries and was great in defense. Chilliboy Ralepelle made a massive impact when he got on the field, particularly at the breakdown.

The Wallabies were clearly out on their feet in the late stages of the game, yet Deans finished the game with 4 unused substitutes.

Was happy for Victor, got to celebrate his 100th game with a win. Expecting South Africa to get up next weekend too.

Poor 2nd half by Australia, credit to the Boks for getting back into it though.

Was a very fun game to watch though, abysmal defence lol, not a good day for the Defensive Coaches Laughing
