Deans inspires Australia to victory over world champions

Robbie Deans masterminded a stunning Australian win over South Africa in the Tri-Nations at the weekend, and now look forward to the arrival of the All Blacks.

The Wallabies played with width and intention, eventually breaking down the strong Springbok defence and playing the game away from the forward battle that Peter de Villiers had had in mind.

The visitors stuck to their usual gameplan that won them the Webb Ellis Cup, reducing the match to a pretty dull affair, but Australia had enough weapons in the armoury to eventually cross the line twice, through Lote Tuquiri and Stirling Mortlock.

Few people would have predicted the result (I certainly won no points in the SuperBru prediction game), but the prospect of next week’s match between Australia and New Zealand is now very appealing.
