Take a bow, Samu Kerevi.
The star centre has been Australiaâ€™s most dangerous player through the first 15 minutes, and he was the man that made the break and threw a perfect cutout pass to Andrew Kellaway, who added the finishing touch to a sensational play.
The Wallabies are in front.
AUS 13-6 RSA after 18 minutes
The South African captain will spend the next 10 minutes in the sin bin.
He lifted Tom Banks above horizontal and while the fullback landed on his arm, it was a clear yellow card.
Itâ€™s been a penalty-a-thon through the opening 15 minutes.
A clever Quade Cooper kick was chased well by his teammates and after forcing a penalty, the playmaker locked the scoreboard up at 6-all.
Thatâ€™s not the start the Waratahs prop was after in his first start for the Wallabies.
Springboks tighthead Frans Malherbe folded Bell at a scrum inside the Wallabiesâ€™ 22 and Pollard did as he does, adding three more points.
RSA 6-3 AUS after 11 minutes
Two Springboks were penalised for not rolling away at the base of an Australian breakdown and Cooper punished them with a penalty goal from about 40 metres out.
Itâ€™s 3-all after eight minutes.
Three points to Handre Pollard start the night.
The Springboks are already kicking the Wallabies into oblivion.
Theyâ€™ve won the battle for three consecutive contestable high balls, followed that with a clever Faf de Klerk kick and eventually forced a penalty right in front of the Wallabiesâ€™ posts.
It will be a long night if the Wallabies get caught playing this style of game.
RSA 3-0 AUS after five minutes
