On Sunday, Springboks will face the Wallabies by the third date of Rugby Championship. Siya Kolisi, captain of South Africa, declared about the respect with which they will play the Aussies. What’s more, Mzwandile Stick, assistant of Jacques nienaber, He commented that he will expect a spectacular meeting between the two selected.
The last meeting of South Africa and Australia was in 2019 with a victory for the South Africans by 35-17. Kolisi throbbed what will be the duel before the Wallabies: “They are a good team, so we will have to put everything we know they did to us in the past. We will treat them with the respect they deserve, “he declared.
After three consecutive defeats by Australia, Quade Cooper will return to the initial XV in search of giving a positive impact. “With Cooper, in particular, we shouldn’t give him time and space so he can’t make decisions and as a team in general they are very dangerous with the ball in hand. “, Stick praised the experienced wing.
Kolisi and Stick will expect it to be a physical match with a special focus on the breakdown. “We know we have to pursue the breakdown as a team, because there are a lot of players (from Australia) who will put their hands on the ruck. Michael Hooper is very good at that, it’s my job too and we have to work as a team at every breakdown, because all will be difficult“, sentenced the South African forward.
