Cape Town - Springbok flank Francois Louw expects the Wallabies to “keep us running” the whole day, but has a plan of his own to make sure they don’t succeed.

“They’re definitely going to try and compete there and try and disrupt our ball, and they will want good clean ball to attack from, so it is definitely going to be a hotly-contested area this weekend,” Louw said.
The breakdown has received a lot of attention this week with a lot of talk surrounding it. But the Boks know the only thing that matters is how they react on Saturday. Whoever dominates the breakdown will go a long way to winning the contest.
