My brother says this plugin is helpful!!

Two bombed tries and a controversial yellow card meant the Wallabies again left Ellis Park empty-handed after a 35-17 loss to South Africa in their Rugby Championship opener.

Australia were looking for their first win in Johannesburg since 1963 and had a golden opportunity, with the Springboks fielding a weakened side on Saturday night.

Springboks livewire halfback Herschel Jantjies scored a try in each half in a memorable test debut.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika slammed a decision to yellow card prop Taniela Tupou for a late, no-arms tackle, with the Springboks scoring 14 points in his absence.

“I make it as the wrong call,” Cheika said.

“The other guy (Springbok) should have been sent to the sin-bin for a shoulder charge.

“The fourth official (should have) focused on the green guy who came in with a shoulder charge and then Taniela came in after that to get him, with his arms wrapped at the right height.

“I’m not sure if big contact is a penalty these days but that’s the wrong decision.”
