RWC: Australia v South Africa



Quote:
If history is anything to go by, South Africa's clash with Australia in Wellington this weekend is likely to produce the winner of this year's Rugby World Cup.

These two southern hemisphere rivals have met twice before in the tournament and on both occasions the victors went on to lift the Webb Ellis Cup.

The Springboks and the Wallabies found themselves in the same pool in 1995 and their eagerly-awaited clash in Cape Town was the tournament opener. The pair shared four tries, with Pieter Hendriks and Joel Stransky dotting for the Boks and Phil Kearns and Michael Lynagh crossing for the Wallabies.

But it was the boot of Stransky which ultimately decided the game in the hosts' favour, the fly-half landing four penalties, a drop goal and a conversion as the Boks' triumphed 27-18. It was a hugely significant win for the South Africans, as it provided them with the momentum which propelled them to glory.

The pair would lock horns again four years later, this time in the semi-finals at Twickenham. The Springboks were again in possession of a fly-half with a big boot, Jannie de Beer, who kicked six penalties and a drop goal, he was outshone by Matt Burke, the Wallabies fullback successful with eight strikes on goal as his side edged hom 27-21, their other three points coming courtesy of a drop goal from fly-half Stephen Larkham. The Aussies, buoyed by having dethroned the reigning champions, then took the title by taking France apart in the final.

So, whoever comes out on top at the Westpac Stadium on Sunday will doubtless be hoping that history repeats itself once more.

Cannot wait for this match, I have no idea who's gonna take it. I kinda hope the Boks, so, IF Wales get to the final they have a chance of avenging the loss from the pool stages.

Which is one of the main reasons I was half rooting for Boks (not a fan of their style, Aus are far more exciting so I'd normally cheer for them). Aus are a far tougher test for Wales.

Rankings change every Monday right? Wales should be at #4 then. And Aus #2. So Aus vs NZ will be #1 vs #2. I always love that.

Good. Running rugby is finally dominating, just like it should be.

At least Wales are the top team in the NH, and have at LEAST reached the Semi's. That's HUGE for NH rugby.

No whats positive for NH rugby is that the best teamwales) are young and play running rugby not penalty goal rugby like england and ireland and france, I hope they are the ones to start the trend of less penalty goals more tries

Tbh Ireland's played a running game against us, and were very very good attacking. Had they taken the 3 penalties we gave them in the first half for points it'd of been a lot closer (then again we missed 2 pens and a conversion so...).

I much prefer to watch a flowing, clinical running rugby game but, if a team can capitilise on forcing errors and turning them into points, good for them.

I'd much rather see Penalties take a dip in the points they are worth though.
