Sydney - Australian fast bowler Peter Siddle on Tuesday joined captain Michael Clarke in declaring the Australian fast bowling attack better than South Africa's vaunted trio of Dale Steyn, Morné Morkel and Vernon Philander.

However, he said the challenge now was to prove it when they tour South Africa in February and March.

With Johnson fresh from taking 37 wickets at 13.9 in the Ashes against England, Siddle said Australia plan to pepper South Africa with another all-out assault.

"I can't see why not. I think the way we've played, we've played like that against them in the past and had success," he said.

"I think we are (the best attack). It shows through the consistency we've had against England here throughout a five-Test series.

"The way we worked together at different stages broke partnerships and didn't let partnerships get big on us.

"That's what caused all the collapses so that's what we're looking to do over there and it could be a very good year for us if we continue to do that."

The Proteas host Australia in three Tests and three T20s starting next month.
