In his interview, Heyneke Meyer refused to blame the ref after the Boks' loss.

Cape Town - Despite the setback of losing to the All Blacks at Eden Park, Springbok fans remain confident of overall Rugby Championship victory.

Following the Springboks' highly controversial loss in Auckland last Saturday, Springbok fans have not read too much into the result, and have backed the Boks to bounce back and beat the Wallabies and the All Blacks at home.

The All Blacks currently lead the Rugby Championship table by four points, with the second-placed Springboks on 14 points.

The Springboks tackle the Wallabies at Newlands on September 28, and then play the All Blacks in what could well be the title decided a week later at Ellis Park.

Sport24 asked:

"Putting the Auckland result behind us, do you think the Boks still have a chance clinch the Rugby Championship title?"

These were the results:

66% - We'll win the lot! Champions!
28% - We'll beat the Wallabies, but fall short at Ellis Park against the All Blacks
6% - Mmm, afraid not. Not even sure we'll beat the Wallabies at Newlands
