Wallabies send home trio to prepare for end of season tour

"It made me more hungry, knowing I had to earn my spot in the team and work hard", Koroibete said.

As it is, it's one win in five games and Micheal Cheika's much talked about win ratio as Wallabies boss continues to sit at an uncomfortably low number.

"They have all got National Rugby Championship games next weekend and the week after before we come back in for the Bledisloe camp", Cheika said.

Rugby is a amusing game, now five games into a six-game tournament, we still don't know if the Springboks are good or bad.

He continued: 'I've seen the footage, they've been going pretty good and I know how that New Zealand game can go against you.

But their fitness held up and so did their defence, repelling all the Springboks' early attacks. Folau is having the best year of his rugby career since he first burst on to the scene in 2013.

It ensured another frustrating Rugby Championship result for the two sides for the second time in less than a month, after they fought out a 23-23 draw in Perth.

On the occasion that Foley did find touch on the full with a kick, it was after the Wallabies had taken the ball back into the 22 and needed to keep the ball in play.

The coach was impressed by the variety in play from his backline. Australia were 13-10 ahead at the break.

The Wallabies of recent times may have wilted at that moment, but fly-half Bernard Foley took it upon himself to lift the visitors.

Foley runs at the line.

That was a whirlwind 10 minutes and it was that Foley-Koroibete combination that linked up again to score the Wallabies' next, the flyhalf hitting the flying Fijian in front with a slick cutout pass on the left wing.

But he was left incensed when a penalty was awarded to the Springboks with less than two minutes remaining on yesterday morning, with referee Ben O'Keeffe ruling Marika Koroibete illegally used his hands in the ruck. "It was fair play", Beale said.

Jantjies tied the score with a penalty nine minutes from time, but could not convert from a hard angle to win the game late on.

"What makes a good game is that there's a lot to play for and it seems that every Test match these days, there is a lot to play for, particularly between these two teams", Hooper said.
