Australia can significantly boost their hopes of a first Rugby Championship since 2015 with another win over the Springboks on Saturday.

The Wallabies defeated the reigning world champions 25-17 last weekend and are seeking a third victory in four matches in the highly-competitive four-team competition.

Meanwhile, South Africa have already lost to both New Zealand and Australia, so a defeat here would all but end their hopes of claiming the title.
