Cape Town - Sport24 readers say the Springboks will have to eradicate their aimless kicking if they are to beat the Wallabies in their Rugby Championship match on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 12:05 SA time.

Many believed that aimless kicks - gifting possession to dangerous players like Wallabies wing Israel Folau - could have disastrous consequences, and that the Springboks needed to tighten up their tactical kicking.

While coach Heyneke Meyer has shown a commitment towards playing more attacking rugby by picking exciting players like Willie le Roux and JJ Engelbrecht, silly mistake crept into the Springbok's game in their win against Argentina in Mendoza, and the Boks will need to up their game if they are to beat the Wallabies in Brisbane, where they have never won before.

Ruan Pienaar in particular came under criticism for his performance against Argentina, and the Springbok halfbacks will be under pressure to ensure they improve the accuracy of their kicking.

In our online poll Sport24 asked:

"What is the most pressing concern for the Springboks ahead of their game against the Wallabies?"

These were the results:

46% - Aimless kicks gifting the enemy possession
28% - The pack not providing clean ball from the ruck
14% - An inability to convert clear-cut chances
12% - The defensive vulnerabilities of the outside backs
