What did the coaches say?
South Africa coach Jacques Nienaver: “We have been monitoring the progress of the injured players every day, so we knew we were in a position to start most of the injured players in this match.
“Australia poses a strong threat to running rugby and they like to keep playing the ball. They will also play in front of a charged home crowd, so it would be good to know what these experienced players know. It must be done in the match.
“Unfortunately we lost Cheslin to an injury, but we were lucky to have Sbu intervene. He worked hard in training and he is eager to return to the field.”
Australia’s manager Dave Rennie: “I am very happy that Quad has another chance to win the gold medal of his country.
“He had a really positive impact after joining the group, he put pressure on us as selectors and we are happy to go out and perform on a Sunday night.
“This match is a great opportunity for our leader Michael Hooper as well. He has phenomenal form and setting the same record as the most tested George Gregans as Australia captain is a testament to his leadership and resilience.
“We also cannot overlook Allan and Reece, who will present 50 tests for their homeland. This is another outstanding achievement by the two ultimate pros who leave everything on the pitch every time they wear their jerseys.”
