Cape Town - With the international season over and with the Cape Town Sevens providing a much-needed distraction, Springbok coach Allister Coetzee has had an easier time of late. 

The knives were out for the Bok mentor when his side returned from their recent northern hemisphere tour with two wins from four Tests.

It left the Boks with seven wins from 13 matches this year while Coetzee now has 11 wins from 25 since taking over as national coach last year. 

Record 57-0 losses to the All Blacks and 38-3 at the hands of Ireland were the low points of South Africa's year, and those results were reason enough for the vast majority of fans to give up on the former Stormers mentor. 

SA Rugby is yet to make a decision on Coetzee's future - those discussions are set to take place this week - but it has been widely reported that he will lose his job. 

According to a poll conducted on Sport24, that would be a popular decision. 

We asked Bok fans the simple question: Should Coetzee stay or go? 

The results were overwhelming!

Over 8 000 people took part in the vote and, of those, a staggering 92% believed that Coetzee couldn't be fired fast enough. 

There were 8% who believed that Coetzee needed time and that he was the man to take the Boks to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.
