Welcome to our live coverage of this Rugby Championship match, between Australia and South Africa, from nib Stadium, in Perth.
This will be the start of a tough week for the Springboks, where they will meet both Antipodean teams over a period of seven days.
Australia has lost their last five Internationals in a row, while the visitors are on a high having won their last five. The last two Australian defeats came at the hands of the All Blacks, but the Wallabies are a much improved team than the one that went down to Scotland in June.
The Wallabies have lost their full-back, Dane Haylett-Petty, due to a bicep injury and he will be replaced Reece Hodge. Stephen Moore will sit out this match and will be replaced by Tatafu Polota-Nau, at hooker. Adam Coleman returns from injury and will start alongside Rory Arnold, at lock. Samu Kerevi is back on the bench, after being dropped for the last test. Jack Dempsey is further included on the bench at the expense of Lopeti Timani. Tevita Kuridrani will make his 50th appearance for the Wallabies today.
South Africa have made two changes to their starting line-up that beat Argentina in Salta. Ross Cronjé returns at scrumhalf, while Francois Hougaard moves to the bench. The other change involves is at lock, where Franco Mostert is rested due to his heavy workload and he is replaced by Pieter-Steph du Toit. The most capped Springbok prop of all time? Tendai Mtawarira, will earn his 93rd cap today. Handré Pollard is a notable inclusion on the bench, as a utility back.
Our referee today is Glen Jackson, from New Zealand. He will be assisted by John Lacey, from Ireland and Paul Williams, from New Zealand. They will be joined by another Kiwi, Ben Skeen, who will be the TMO.
