Springboks are doing better despite a Wallabies draw - Xola Ntshinga

South Africa and Australia drew 27 all on Saturday, their second draw in this year’s Rugby Championship after a 23 all stalemate in Perth on 9 September.

The team was looking to bounce back after a record defeat against world champions New Zealand.

Rugby commentator Xola Ntshinga says while the latest match signaled an improvement from the Boks, there is something lacking.

They certainly are playing with a lot more verve, if you will. They are starting to show a little bit of attack and a bit of flare. The only problem is I don't think they have got enough X-factor players to pull it off.

Xola Ntshinga, rugby commentator

It was an incredible test match to watch, but then the final pass or the second last pass or the one that would really put try scorer away didn't come, I think that is where we lack at the moment, is making the crucial decisions at the key moment.
