SA vs Aus: Choose your cutlery – Mandela Plate or Wooden Spoon

This weekend the Springboks take on the Aussies in the Cutlery battle as the winner will walk away with the Mandela Cup and the loser will win the Tri-Nations’ wooden spoon.

The dominance of the All Black is the direct cause for this cutlery battle and these two teams know that a win is a must in order to get the momentum started for next year’s World Cup.

Both teams struggle to put a full 80 minute game together , so the lapse in concentration by both teams will provide action galore.

Rugby 365 prediction: “Last week we predicted victory for South Africa by 10 or more. The way they got on top with solid rugby as opposed to opportunism suggests that this week the Springboks should win by 15 or more.

I think the game is going to be closer but the Boks will take it. It is going to be a high scoring game and the Springboks should win by 7.

On the braai front, it is going to be challenging again as we have another Rugby omnibus. The Blue Bulls and Sharks at 7 so maybe it’s a quick steak braai between the games or medium to heavy game snacking (biltong, peanuts, chips) and throwing the chops on the braai at 9.
