Australia Wallabies vs South Africa Springboks Prediction

After winning their opening games, both the Wallabies and Springboks are coming off big defeats. As it is already week 3, they won’t want to lose any more matches.

The recent records in Australia talk in favor of the Wallabies. They are 2-0 up against the Springboks and haven’t lost in the last seven matches on Australian soil.

However, it would be difficult to beat the World Champions South Africa in such an intriguing match. We expect it is going to be a close game with the Springboks narrowly claiming the victory.
