Drew Mitchell says the Wallabies will have a point to prove against the Springboks on Saturday.
After heavy losses to the All Blacks in Sydney and Auckland, the Wallabies are under pressure to beat the Boks in Brisbane.
Mitchell said it would be up to the players to respond.
‘That’s not anyone’s issue other than the person themselves. When you’re in a hole, you have a voice telling you to go hard and another saying go easy … you have a choice.
‘When they see themselves taking the easier option in the review … you want to make sure you don’t sit in the same situation [after Saturday’s game] and look at the same decision twice.’
The former Wallabies wing also defended under-fire coach Michael Cheika.
‘I would hope there’s no idea of him not being the coach at that World Cup next year. He’s a genuine planner, he’d have some things in the pipeline he’ll start to execute over the next 12 months and it’d be a damn shame if he wasn’t able to go through with them.’
