We take the Springboks to win by more than 10 points
Which team will make significant advances on what they did in Durban last Saturday? Both teams claim to have learnt from that match and both claim that they will be better. Will they be? Which one will be better enough to win this time?
England will claim that they now know what to expect from the Springboks - as if they could not have known before, except, of course, that now they may know the size of the physical force to expect - the reality after only a mental idea. They may also take heart from their injury-time try and wonder why they had waited till injury time to bring speed and verve into their game.
South Africa base their claim on a longer time to prepare and to bond. They will take heart from the improved performance of the second half when suddenly they lifted the tempo of their game.
The two teams were close enough in Durban to suggest that either could win - a 22-17 winning score is not convincing. But then if those kicks had gone over, if those chances had become points...
England will hope to scrum better; South Africa will hope to consolidate the breakdown. They may even want to get the ball in action more quickly - as happened after Ruan Pienaar came on. François Hougaard's delaying tactics were stultifying.
The England forwards will have to improve greatly to achieve parity.
Behind the scrum, England have two excellent runners with the ball in Ben Foden who has the greater freedom of fullback and Chris Ashton who can break a game open. How much ball will get to them beyond their centres remains to be seen for, if Manu Tuilagi again relies on muscle, the clever backs may have a lean time of it and England will lose.
Goal-kicking always counts. South Africa's goalkicking in Durban was wasteful but Morné Steyn is back in the surety of the Highveld and he has accurate Patrick Lambie with him. They are both probably more reliable kickers than Toby Flood who may not get close enough often enough to have an effect on the game.
Both sides have had injuries from last week. England have lost their excellent fullback, Mike Brown, and their rugged centre Brad Barrett who had to stay at home in Durban to have his eye repaired. South Africa have lost their fullback Zane Kirchner and prop Coenie Oosthuizen with a worrying neck injury. Oosthuizen came off the bench last week but immediately showed the value of his strength and unusual skills.
Players to Watch:
From South Africa: Bryan Habana, the best back on the field in Durban on attack and defence. If he again turns on the electricity and team-mates can get to him they could be rewarded with tries. Jean de Villiers had an excellent game last weekend and this weekend he is up against newboy Jonathan Joseph. Then there are two questions: Will Willem Alberts be rampaging again this week? Will François Hougaard get a move on? And, oh, you will see Bismarck du Plessis whose force in the team is growing.
For England: Those clever, effective runners Ben Foden and Chris Ashton have the ability to change a game. You will take notice of Manu Tuilagi of the might frame.
Head to Head: The scrumhalf squabble - François Hougaard v Ben Youngs - small men who are unafraid of confrontation. Big François Steyn vs big Manu Tuilagi - with the possibility of the most powerful centre conflict in international rugby. The battle between two strong front rows with their short fuses.

Prediction: It will again be physical with South Africa looking better equipped to be physical. They may well be more confident this week than they were last week, but without reason to fall for the self destructive wiles of overconfidence. We take the Springboks to win by more than 10 points.
