"The Springboks at home are very tough and I think it's going to be one hell of a game next week," he told AAP.
"They'll take a lot of confidence out of that (victory over New Zealand). They'll be cock-a-hoop."
"It will be a huge injection of confidence and the nation will be behind them."
South African fans are some of the most intimidating in the world, posing as much a hurdle off the field as the Springboks will be on.
"It'll build up. The whole focus of the country's been on the All Blacks-Springboks," he said.
"That (Wallabies-Springboks) battle goes back a long time."
"The history of these battles is very deep in the psyche of both countries."
