Rugby Championship: Australia and South Africa draw 23-23

Big Vic warns Springboks: Wallabies will be no cakewalk

The 23-year-old Louw, who weighs 130kg, will join the Springboks in Auckland on Monday ahead of their Test against the All Blacks next weekend.

The Wallabies and Springboks drew for just the second time in the history of their 84-game rivalry on Saturday night after the home side coughed up a 10-point lead in Perth - but they were ultimately fortunate to escape with a share of the spoils.

"Kurtley has been unbelievable since he's been back (from a hamstring injury).he's killed it, carved it up, and he's bitterly disappointed in that dressing room", Cheika said.

"Argentina love to scrum, it's the foundation of any good side and we'll have to better than we were last weekend and definitely lineout-wise we were pretty scratchy as well, so we've got a bit of work to do".

"It's about making sure we finish off the game, the back end of our game we'd really like to improve, we know we're fit enough so it's all about refining the little details".

"We all need that same attitude of wanting it a lot and staying at it". "Credit to the South Africans, they managed to grind and put the pressure on us".

Beale was the Wallabies' clear standout - continuing his magnificent form since returning from England - while Michael Hooper, Israel Folau, Coleman and Foley were also impressive.




Uelese was on far earlier than expected when top hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau copped a poke in the eye and required a concussion test on the sidelines before the 20-minute mark.

"What an opportunity early on when not expecting it and the nerves are probably a bit less". I thought there were one or two really bad ones.

"For a guy who hasn't played footy since May, he's come in and played three full games of footy and killed them".

A reflection of their new-found confidence came when coach Allister Coetzee, who oversaw losses in eight of 12 Tests previous year, said the team would not be happy with a draw even away from home against the twice former World Cup winners. "The Springboks are a great team as well, but it's not going to come easy for them", Matfield said at the launch of the Rugby Centurions, a new initiative that honours those icons who have played 100 Tests.

"Next week is a different challenge all together". "Set-piece didn't allow us to get momentum in the second half".

"We have four excellent locks at our disposal at the moment and Pieter-Steph was outstanding tonight".
