Much hoopla was made about the Wallabies injuries and the Springboks power coming into this fixture.
Playing to the regular script of the Springboks in Australia over the decade, the Boks were rather toothless as they lacked the clinical finishing ability to truly threaten the Wallabies.
Continually attacking with their big physical ball carriers before making a handling or tactical mistake, the Boks looked decidedly average.
On the flipside the Wallabies defensive and strike play ability was sensational. Offered very opportunities, the Wallabies were lethal when given an opportunity.
Fraser McReight standing in for regular skipper Michael Hooper was an absolute menace at the breakdown as he put his hand up as a long-term option for the Wallabies back row.
Scoring a couple of late consolation tries will not ease Springbok pain as they continue to play a trudged style of rugby lacking any real creativity.
Dave Rennie’s Wallabies however will know that a clean sweep of the World Champions will set them up with a legitimate shot at the Rugby Championship title.
Just over a year out from the World Cup, the trajectory of the two sides continues to change.
The Wallabies heavy defeat in Argentina would appear to have been heavily linked to their sever injuries as today’s performance was sensational.
For the Boks, home losses to Wales and New Zealand combined with today’s no show should be a serious concern for their coaching ticket and fans.
