Australia coach Robbie Deans insists full-back Kurtley Beale won't repeat his error-strewn performance seen in the Rugby Championship opener.
Reeling from two defeats in as many weekends to New Zealand, Deans has recalled out-of-form Beale to the Wallabies starting XV to face South Africa in Perth on Saturday.
Beale was dropped from the line-up after fumbling and bumbling his way through the Wallabies' 27-19 loss to the All Blacks in Sydney, before regaining some confidence coming off the bench in the recent 22-0 loss in Auckland.
And Deans, who is under pressure to turn around the Wallabies' fortunes or face the sack, will hope the utility back can inject some urgency into the side.
"He's in a better space," Deans said of Beale.
"I don't think you'll see a performance like that from Kurtley again.
"He's too good a player for a repeat of that.
"It was just one of those nights really. It goes from bad to worse and just compounds. It's in the past fortunately. I've seen a player that's very keen not to have a repeat."
Beale slots in at fullback, with Adam Ashley-Cooper shifting to outside centre to replace the dropped Rob Horne.
Deans added that 23-year-old Melbourne Rebel had been putting in the hard yards in training to rectify his mistakes.
"He's working hard on and off the field. He's doing his homework, making sure he's around the detail, which helps a lot in terms of positioning. You're less likely to get exposed," said Deans.
Australia, without a point and bottom of the standings after two rounds, must defeat the Springboks to keep their slim title hopes alive in the inaugural Rugby Championship, which sees Argentina debut in the southern hemisphere tournament.
