Australia nabbed another victory over South Africa, winning 30-17 as the Brisbane crowd cheered the home team’s ascendancy. Len Ikitau and Marika Koroibete led the Australian effort scoring two tries while Copper nailed two penalties. For South Africa, Pollard had four penalties and Am had a try but the Springboks’ effort proved to be highly underwhelming.
South Africa’s coach Jacques Nieber had the following to say on the brutal loss, "We got hands down beaten in everything - defence, kicking game, attack. This isn't a performance that was worthy enough for a Springboks performance.".
The Wallabies also secured a bonus point and are now placed third in the table just one point behind South Africa. New Zealand leads the table right now and is yet to lose in the competition.
