Here is another example of how the Springboks lost the battle at the breakdowns. We get rucked off the ball but it is again the Aussie tackling technique which causes this.
Flip v/d Merwe takes the ball up with the first Aussie defender again tackling in and upwards on his chest lifting and turning him at the same time. The second tackler is a bit late but Flip falls awkward with the ball under his hip. Springboks can't get their hands on the ball and the Aussies counter ruck force the bridger (Kruger) off the ball mostly because Kruger is to upright in his bridge position.
