The Boks really should win this week but Suncorp is not their favourite ground. The Wallabies have a great record there as well. I’m going to say SA by 3 but with absolutely no confidence. It could go either way. Just think that when the Springboks are up against it they really come out firing.

Yeah, the Boks will probably win a tight one... expecting them to execute their lineout, scrums & mauls more accurately this week, also hope to see them vary play & use their backs more.

We outscored them three tries to one last game. We just need more of the same with one change. BE MORE CLINICAL. Nail our kicks then we are fine.

Silly penalties given also and our boys fell off way too many tackles. Probably easier said than done. I expect that if Kerevi was running into me I'd also not be able to keep a hold. Willemse made an amazing try saving tackle where he should never have been in that position. Pollard to be closer to 80% than 50% at goal would also help.

For me it all comes down to intensity and focus. It just wasn't there. We paid the price and I hope, no I expect there is enough pride there that there will be no complacency or lack of fire this week.
