After four matches in the competition, the Boks have just one victory under their belt and with criticism mounting in South Africa, the two-time world champions will be desperate for victory in front of their home fans.
The Boks are currently on a three-match losing streak after losses to Argentina, Australia and New Zealand and Saturday’s Test could be a watershed moment for head coach Allister Coetzee and his troops as another defeat will leave them demoralised ahead of their final match of the tournament, against New Zealand in Durban on October 8.
If one looks at recent fixtures between these countries in South Africa, however, it’s not all doom and gloom for the hosts. The Springboks have won their last three matches against Australia on home soil, keeping the Wallabies to 10 points or fewer in each of those three fixtures.
South Africa have hosted Australia at Loftus Versfield on six previous occasions, winning each of those games, and they haven’t tasted defeat at the venue against any team since New Zealand visited in 2006, winning seven Tests there since then.
Australia know exactly what the Boks are experiencing at the moment as they lost their first five Tests of 2016. They eventually secured a hard-fought 23-17 victory over the Boks in Sydney in Round Three, before showing glimpses of the form which helped them to secure a runners-up spot at last year’s Rugby World Cup in their next match – a 36-20 bonus-point victory over Argentina in Perth two weeks ago.
But despite their triumph over the Boks – in their previous clash – the Wallabies head into this fixture knowing that their opponents will be highly motivated on their home turf.
A Wallabies win will be a momentous one as they will be looking to defeat South Africa twice in a calendar year for the first time since 2011, when they did so three times.
Wallaby coach Michael Cheika is wary of their opponents and dismissed suggestions that the Boks were not a force in the world game after their recent run of defeats.
“It’s easy to say that when you haven’t played against them… they’re one of the traditional powerhouses of world rugby and that doesn’t go away,” he said.
“All that other stuff is rubbish – I don’t think that the last two games that we have played count for much and I don’t think what they’ve done in the last couple of games counts for much either.
“I’m sure we’re going to see the best Springbok team and we’ve got to bring our game as well. We’ll see where we end up.”
