Cape Town - The All Blacks remain favourites for next year's Rugby World Cup, despite their defeat to the Springboks at Ellis Park on Saturday.

The Boks drew tremendous confidence from their last-gasp 27-25 victory, but SA bookies sportingbet remain convinced it won't be enough to topple the All Blacks at next year's spectacle in England.

The All Blacks are on offer at 7/5, while England can be backed at 7/2.

The Springboks are next best at 4/1 while Australia are listed at 8/1, followed by Ireland (12/1), Wales (14/1) and France (18/1).

The Springboks are 1/10 favourites to top Pool B - from Samoa, Scotland, USA and Japan - and progress as group winners to the quarter-finals.
