Cape Town - Springbok assistant coach Matt Proudfoot on Tuesday said the South Africans are expecting a huge challenge by the Wallaby pack when the two teams meet in the third round of the Rugby Championship at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 12:05 (SA time).

Proudfoot, a former Test front ranker, said he is expecting the Wallabies to be very competitive in all set-piece departments.

“Australian lineouts have been exceptional throughout the years and their scrums and defensive breakdowns are very good, so we know upfront it’s going to be a tough challenge,” said Proudfoot.

“Test matches are determined by small margins so we therefore have to ensure that we are accurate in our execution, in all departments.”

The Springbok match-23 to face Australia this weekend will be announced on Wednesday at 19h00 (SA time).
