The Wallaby coaching staff have replaced Saia Faingaa and Dean Mumm with the more experienced and hardened duo of Stephen Moore and Mark Chisholm. With some lineout wobbles in Pretoria and some less than perfect scrum work, a change here can’t be a bad thing.
Ben McCalman replaces Richard Brown at No 8. It’s going to be a big ask for McCalman to mix it with Burger, Smith and Spies.
Both teams played a loose game in Pretoria, neither side seemed afraid to attack from all quarters.
