Australia’s Will Genia says he will be lining up against the best scrumhalf he’s seen “by far” if, as expected, Fourie du Preez returns to South Africa’s line-up for Saturday’s Tri-Nations test in Durban.
Genia says Du Preez, set to be one of a host of frontline players recalled by the Springboks, makes “a massive difference” to South Africa as he “always makes the right decision and controls a game very, very well”.
Genia also says the Wallabies’ defence in their 30-14 loss in New Zealand last weeked was “pretty poor”.
Australia and South Africa will now both announce their teams on Thursday for the game at King’s Park after a number of injury doubts led the Boks to delay Tuesday’s planned announcement. — Sapa-AP
