Johannesburg - The Springboks will beat the All Blacks this weekend, BUT
will fail to lift the Rugby Championship trophy, Sport24 readers say.
The Springbok face the All Blacks at Ellis Park hoping to earn their first win against the All Blacks since 2011, when they beat their New Zealand foes 18-5 at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
To win the Rugby Championship the Springboks will have to claim a bonus point by scoring four tries, prevent the All Blacks from doing the same, and make sure that they win by a margin greater than seven points - a tough ask against the No 1-ranked team in the world!
84% of readers were tipping a Springbok win against the All Blacks, but over half of readers said it wouldn't be enough to claim the 2013 Rugby Championship title.
The match kicks off at 17:00 on Saturday.
