Springboks 2017: By the numbers

2017-12-04 10:19

Cape Town - The Springboks have finished 2017 with 7 wins, 4 losses and 2 draws from their 13 Tests. 

While that may be a significant improvement from their 4 wins and 8 defeats in 2016, it might not be enough to save coach Allister Coetzee from getting the sack when SA Rugby meets in mid-December to discuss his performance. 

The year started with a lot of hope after five straight wins - three against France and two against Argentina - but a 57-0 loss against the All Blacks in Albany quickly brought the Boks crashing back down to earth. 

Here, we take a look at the Springbok year in numbers:

3 - How many teams the Boks beat this year; Argentina, Italy and France

5 - Most tries scored by a Bok player; Jesse Kriel

12 - Springbok debuts handed out this year

32 - Tries conceded

35 - How many points the Boks lost by against Ireland in their 38-3 hammering

39 - Tries scored

41 - The number of Springboks used by Coetzee this year

44 - South Africa's overall win percentage under Coetzee

53.8 - South Africa's win percentage in 2017

57 - The infamous number of points the Boks shipped in Albany; their biggest loss ever

123 - Most points by a Bok player; Elton Jantjies

296 - Points conceded

336 - Points scored
