Oz to focus on 'own game'

2011-08-10 15:44

Durban - Australia fullback Kurtley Beale sees Saturday's Tri-Nations Test against South Africa as an immediate chance to put things right after last weekend's defeat by New Zealand.

With the World Cup looming, Beale says the Wallabies have "got to turn up" a week after a 30-14 loss in Auckland, where the Aussies were 17-0 down at halftime.

Beale says: "Obviously we want to turn things around very quickly and we're glad to have the opportunity this week."

He adds Australia should go out and play their own game in Durban, "whatever the Springbok team."

The Springboks are set to recall a string of senior players to test Australia in both teams' penultimate game before next month's World Cup.

    You were weighed and you were measured and you were comprehensively beaten by a better team. Ive said all along if you put the halfbacks under presure and give them no go forward ball they will crumble with their poor tactical kicking especialy on 10.

    Does Oz's "own game" not involve erotic sheep?
