The Springboks might be sitting pretty at the top of the Rugby Championship log but they would have jetted out of Johannesburg headed for Perth fully aware of the make-or-break factor in their upcoming two-Test tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Not since the 2014 season have the Springboks left for Australasia feeling as confident as they are at the moment after making the perfect start to the competition with two wins against Argentina which included their maiden away win under coach Allister Coetzee.

But the five consecutive wins so far this season, which include the 3-0 series whitewash against France, will be redundant in the Springboks' aspirations for their maiden Rugby Championship title if they don’t at least pick up one win on this away leg before coming home and hosting both the Wallabies and All Blacks.

With the first part of the competition successfully completed with convincing wins against the Pumas in Port Elizabeth and Salta, the Springboks will be salivating at the prospect of returning from Perth and Auckland with one hand already on the trophy.
