Cape Town - While former Springbok legend Naas Botha reckons the Wallabies v Springboks Rugby Championship Test in Brisbane on Saturday is too close to call, bookmakers are predicting another defeat for the beleaguered Boks.
Boks put in a forgettable performance in going down 26-24 to Argentina
in Salta in their last match, setting another unwanted "record" in being the
first side to ever lose in Argentina.
In mid-year, in new coach
Allister Coetzee's first Test in charge at Newlands, the Boks lost the
first ever Test to Ireland in South Africa.
The Wallabies are coming off consecutive losses to New Zealand.
Kick-off is at 12:05 (SA time).
The Wallabies have in fact lost six Tests on the trot, but are still considered by SA bookies Sportingbet to be 3-point favourites heading into the clash.
Earlier in the day, the All Blacks host Argentina in Hamilton at 09:35 (SA time).
The All Blacks are 22-point favourites to win that match and extend their Rugby Championship lead.
