Simply not good enough - Kobus Wiese

Cape Town - Springbok great Kobus Wiese was left unimpressed following South Africa's second consecutive stalemate against Australia.

As it happened: Springboks v Wallabies

The Springboks and Wallabies played out to a 27-27 draw in Bloemfontein on Saturday, after sharing the spoils in Perth, 23-23, three weekends ago.

Wiese, a Rugby World Cup winner in 1995, took to Twitter after the final whistle at Free State Stadium to express his frustration with coach Allister Coetzee's team.

Another draw! Simply not good enough, the 18-Test veteran wrote.

Wiese was left non-plussed by Coetzee's charges who now face the daunting prospect of fronting the All Blacks at Newlands on Saturday.

Coetzee will be well aware that following that 23-all draw in Perth, the Springboks went on to lose in record-breaking fashion - 57-0 - to the world champion New Zealanders the following weekend in Albany.

Coetzee's record at the helm of the national team now reads a woeful played 20, won 9, lost 9, drawn 2 for a win percentage of a paltry 45%.

Wiese also made reference to what the majority of Springboks fans have been left pondering of late in that the centre combination of Jan Serfontein and Jesse Kriel, the loose forward trio of Uzair Cassiem, Francois Louw (previously Jaco Kriel) and Siya Kolisi and the back three of Courtnall Skosan, Dillyn Leyds (previously Raymond Rhule) and Andries Coetzee are simply not working.
