Cape Town - The Springboks will coast to victory against the Wallabies in their Rugby Championship clash at Newlands on Saturday - according to the bookmakers.
Kick-off is at 17:00.
Leading SA bookies SportsBet
have installed Heyneke Meyer's men as 12-point
favourites to 'do the double' over Ewen McKenzie's under fire Australian team.
The Boks thrashed the Wallabies 38-12 in their clash in Brisbane early this month.
The Boks are quoted as 17/100 favourites to win the match, while the Wallabies can be backed at 5/1. The draw is on offer at 28/1.
The Boks are currently second in the Rugby Championship standings
, four points adrift of the table-topping All Blacks who play Argentina at 00:40 on Sunday morning SA time.
Defeat against the Wallabies could spell the end of the Boks' title challenge, while victory for Meyer's troops and the All Blacks will set up a mouth-watering decider at Ellis Park on Saturday, October 5.Teams:South Africa
