Cape Town - The Springboks should have no trouble securing a 3-0 series win over France on Saturday, if local bookmakers are to be believed.

The sides meet at Ellis Park for the third and final Test of the series, and bookies Sportingbet believe the Boks will come away with a 13 point win in front of their home fans at the 1995 Rugby World Cup final venue. 

The Boks are overwhelming 1/7 favourites to win the match while the French are outsiders at 9/2. The draw is on offer at 28/1.

Springbok wing Courtnall Skosan, meanwhile, is the favourite to score the first try of the match and he can be backed at 8/1

Kick-off on Saturday is at 17:05.
