Cape Town - The Springboks will beat Ireland to claim the three-Test series 2-1 in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, local bookmakers have predicted.

A 14-man Ireland shocked the Springboks 26-20 in the first Test at Newlands and were on the cusp of claiming a series win at Ellis Park last weekend, only to concede a 26-10 advantage in the final quarter to eventually lose 32-26.

In both Tests, local bookmakers Sportingbet.co.za backed the Boks for comfortable wins - 15 points in Cape Town and 11 in Johannesburg.

Ahead of this weekend’s Test in Port Elizabeth, the bookmakers have tipped the Boks to emerge victorious by 10 points.

Overall, the two nations have faced each other in 24 Tests, with South Africa boasting a 17-6 win-loss ratio, with one match ending in a draw.

Ireland though have won five of the last eight Tests played between the nations.
