Following three days of hard training in Johannesburg, it was decided to give the players some time to recuperate and adjust to the new time zone – they will have a flush out session in the gym on Monday before going back to the training field on Tuesday.
"The challenge that lies ahead is a massive one," said Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer.
"We've not beaten Australia in our last four matches and have won only one out of our last seven encounters against them.
"I have a lot of respect for Robbie Deans' coaching and they have a very good squad.
"We also realise we were not good enough against Argentina in Mendoza and we have to improve a lot if we are going to be competitive on Saturday, but we are excited and looking forward to the Test."
