PRESSURE: Russell Domingo.

Bokke and Proteas get ready for new eras.

The Proteas and the Springboks are both hoping for successful new eras.

With the national cricket teams still under review, the Proteas must bring their A-game when they face the West Indies and Australia in a triangular series, starting next Friday.

The Boks face Ireland, who revealed their touring group yesterday, at Newlands next weekend with new coach Allister Coetzee announcing his first squad this Saturday.

Domingo wants to make an impression against Australia, who SA face in three Tests later this year.
