RC - Wallabies vs Springboks, Gold Coast Sunday 12 September 8:05 PM

Blue

Andrew Slack (58)
Will there be a Wallaby selection shakeup?

What can the Wallabies change? Fewer intercepts and a batter lineout might be a good start.

Will the Boks strategy change much from the Lions series?

Will anyone in the Gold Coast care?

I don't see any Springbok selection surprises.

Likely Bok 23:
15. Le Roux 14. Kolbe. 13. Am, 12. de Allende, 11. Mapimpi, 10. Pollard, 9 de Klerk
8. Wiese, 7. Mostert 6. Kolisi, 5. De Jager, 4. Etsebeth, 3. Nyakane, 2. Mbonambi, 1. Kitshoff

16. Marx, 17. Nche, 18. Koch, 19. Janse van Rensburg, 20. Vermeulen 21. Kwagga, 22. Reinach 23. Willemse

The only possible change will be in the props (they play on rotation these days). Wiese might drop to bench with Vermeulen starting if he is ready.

Agree on the Bok selection. Hope we play more phases and less box kicking.

Its a double header, so suppose there will be a lot of Kiwis in the crowd. Bokke haven't played in front of a crowd , so this may play a big role for them.

Can't even vokken travel to Queensland to go and see this.

Thanks, Australian premiers.

This year's travel plans were always going to be a trip to SA to see the Lions followed by a trip to NZ for the 100th test. That went well.

Hope you’re holding up okay in Sydders mate.

They’re always intriguing test matches between the Boks and Wallabies especially those played in Australia.

Ja international travel is still a bitch. Hope your SA family is all good.

Mate I was wanting to get down to Dunedin for the 100th test too, it is such a special one I really wanted to have it in my mind that I had been there when ABs played their (in my opinion) most respected and greatest foe on the rugby field.
And the Lions is always worth the trip, made 2 quick trips over the Tasman when the Lions were here in NZ a couple of years ago, before coming back to live obviously.
Like PB says mate, I hope SA family is ok, I got friends over road from Capetown, and they are struggling with what happening over there.

Going to be interesting to see selections this week for wallabies.

I have supported Rennie given cattle available and benefit of time needed for combinations to gel. But spine of team built around key positions and 10 is one of those and Noah not ready for test footy. Let him get ready playing super rugby or off the bench.

Banks also had enough time in the saddle and not the answer. Hodge or Petaia or kellaway worth trying at this point for remainder of RC.

We are caught in the middle of a third wave and the smallest of towns, most don't have hospitals, struggling the most. Some figures around the most southerly point of Africa where I live

I'm big on building combinations and cohesion, but think we do need a few changes as well. Assuming JOC (James O'Connor), Paisami and LSL (Lukhan Salakaia-Loto) remain unavailable, I would run with:

Slipper, BPA (if fit), Tupou, Swain, Philip, Leota, Hooper, Samu, Tate, Noah, Koroibete, Kerevi, Ikitau, Kellaway, Hodge.

Fainga'a, Bell, Allan, Rodda, McReight, Naisarani/Wilson/Valetini, White, Wright/Muirhead

Maybe
Probably the fly-half
I don't see why they would change a winning formula
Gold coast sucks balls for sport.

I read an article on Fox sports site which said JOC (James O'Connor) would be available

You'd think that JOC (James O'Connor) will come into contention, but I'm not sure I want him starting. Noah to start and JOC (James O'Connor) to come off the bench? Or maybe Hodge to start.

Let's give Loloesio a go against the second best team in the world - if he struggles again then we can crucify him.

Wobs have dropped to seventh in the rankings. A heavy loss here will Edit: make them seventh equal with Scotland on 82.02
