Australia will be looking to beat South Africa twice in a calendar year for the first time since the Wallabies travelled to Loftus Versfeld in October 2011.

It definitely won’t be an easy task for Michael Cheika’s men, as the Springboks haven’t lost at that venue since 2006, winning their last seven matches there.

These two sides met back in Round 3 of 2016 The Rugby Championship, with the Wallabies winning on home soil 23-17.

Bernard Foley scored 18 points for Australia that night, as the Wallabies overturned a double digit deficit to record the six-point win.

Australia head into this match with two wins and two losses after four rounds, and South Africa go in with a record of 1-3.

Despite the Springboks winning just the one game against Argentina, CrownBet shows South Africa are the favourites sitting at $1.70, with Australia outsiders at $2.15.

The Springboks have flown out of the gates at the start of each game this tournament, scoring four tries in the opening 20 minutes of matches, which is more than the rest of the competition.

It’s also a cause for concern for Allister Coetzee’s side though, as it’s more than half the tries they’ve scored overall in the Championship, meaning the Springboks are unable to stick with teams late in games.

One player that has no problems finding the line however is Bryan Habana, as his try in South Africa’s 41-13 loss last round to New Zealand was the 66th of his career, moving him to just three behind Japan’s Daisuke Ohata, the man who has the most international tries in history.

Australia’s last game was against Argentina on September 17, with the Wallabies running out 36-20 winners in Perth.

With New Zealand running away with the competition, this match-up will pit the two next best teams against each other, so expect a fantastic game in South Africa.
