Cape Town - The Springboks have two Rugby Championship matches left and, with just a single home win against Argentina to show for their efforts thus far, are desperate to turn things around. 

In their favour is that both their remaining matches are on home soil.

Loftus Versfeld is the venue for Saturday's clash (17:05) against the Wallabies before the Boks move to Durban to take on the mighty All Blacks. 

But, according to a Sport24 poll, the majority of Bok supporters feel that there could be more disappointment on the cards. 

Over 10 000 people took part in the poll, which asked "How the Boks will fare in their last two matches".

A staggering 6 041 voters (56%) believed that South Africa would lose both of their matches. 

3 977 (37%) believe the Boks will beat Australia but lose to the All Blacks, while just 129 (1%) think the Boks will do the business in Durban, but lose to the Wallabies. 

Then there the 643 (6%) die-hard fans who think that coach Allister Coetzee will guide the Springboks to back-to-back victories. 

Here's hoping those 6% are right!
