Australia bounced back from defeat to Argentina with an impressive 25-17 victory over South Africa last weekend.

Now the Wallabies are bidding to make it three wins from four in this year’s Rugby Championship when they take on the Springboks again this weekend.

The Aussies are keeping faith with the XV that started seven days ago, but South Africa have made a host of changes to their side.

Argentina somewhat surprisingly sit top of the table after three rounds of fixtures, but this could present an opportunity for either Australia or South Africa to close the gap, with the Pumas set for a second clash against New Zealand.
