Lood de Jager was outstanding as his replacement, with him and Eben Etzebeth getting through a mountain of work in carrying and on defence.
The good news is that Matfield’s injury is not believed to be serious, so he will be back in the mix shortly, but the big potential loss for the Boks with the World Cup in mind was the knee injury suffered by Marcell Coetzee in the second half.
If reports that it is a medial injury are true, it could mean that his participation in the World Cup is in doubt.
The Boks missed a few scoring opportunities in the first half and the Wallabies missed some in the second, so both teams will go away knowing they have much work to do.
As the World Cup build-up continues, the Boks will host the All Blacks and the Wallabies will visit Argentina next week.
On Friday, the New Zealand All Blacks beat the visiting Argentina Pumas 39-18 in Christchurch.
