Being the 2007 defending champions, the Springboks beat England in 2007 Rugby World Cup with a 15-6 score. To become the champion 2 straight times is not an easy task, as they are assigned in a Pool D with Fiji, Wales, and Samoa.
Australia won the Tri Nations 2011, so they have their confidence up. They beat New Zealand in a rematch for that tourney, and won with a 25-20 score.
