Cape Town - The Springboks have settled in Brisbane and are hard at work preparing for Saturday's Rugby Championship clash against the Wallabies.

It is a massive clash for both sides. 

While the Springboks are desperate to bounce back from their poor display against Argentina in Mendoza two weekends ago, the Wallabies are under their own pressure having been thrashed home and away by the world champion All Blacks. 

Defeat at home to South Africa would not be acceptable for Australian rugby lovers, while the Boks need this win to convince their own supporters that they are on the right track under coach Rassie Erasmus. 

It promises to be an intriguing affair, and Erasmus is expected to make a few changes to his starting line-up. 

The side was hard at work on Tuesday morning, and our friends over at Gallo Images were there to capture the action.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 12:00
