The Springboks is back in action this weekend when they take on the Aussies in PE after a bye last week.
After the hype of the All Black victory it must be back to business for Rassie to make sure we keep on track in building the core base of this team and improve in everything we do as a team.
The All Black test was a huge improvement from the two losses against the Pumas and Aussies, but such a high can have a negative effect on a team as well.
So what will be seen as progress against the Aussies this week?
To improving from the last test is simple, we must hammer the Aussies in PE. We are playing at home and against an Aussie side that have been struggling even more than us this year.
This does not mean that we need to take this test lightly. The Aussies are fighting for survival, not just the players but also their coach Cheika who has come under a lot of pressure.
We talk many times about momentum, and that momentum is definitely with the and this Springboks for this test so we need to make sure that we keep it.
The Aussies have not won in South Africa since 2011which gives the Springboks the edge.
At this moment only Ireland and England have shown that they may be able to challenge the All Blacks.
Facing the All Blacks in our first pool match at the World Cup next year we need to be with the English and Irish which we are not at the moment.
The only way to achieve that will be for the Springboks to be ruthless. This cannot be a test were we scrape through a win or even loose to Australia.
The team must now start showing consistency, you cannot come away with a hard fought win over the All Blacks in New Zealand the one week and struggle the next against Australia.
The Springboks have shown some enterprising play this year but that can only be achieve with a solid base and the correct decision being made by players.
Game management will be very important which will start with our nine and ten.
Upfront we should be dominating but there are still some worrying aspects in our lineout play.
The team must show the same commitment and effort in defence as what they shown us in the All Black test, we cannot go one step forward and then one step back in the regard.
There is a worry that we will again see a new midfield combination this weekend which is worrying aspect this year. We need to start seeing Erasmus settling on his starting midfield so that we can have consistency in the backline.
We have Australia, New Zealand, England, France, Scotland and Wales left this year and we need to see a ruthless Springboks side in all of these test.
