SA fans back Springboks to pummel Ireland in upcoming series


Ireland and South Africa are set to battle it out next month in one of the most highly anticipated series in recent memory.

The two sides have built up a huge rivalry over the last few years with the addition of the four South African franchises to the URC adding further spice.

Ireland defeated the world champions during the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup last year but crashed out at the quarter-final stages despite being backed to go all the way.

There has been plenty of spice in recent weeks from both players and coaches but not the fans themselves have chimed in and they reckon the Boks will make light work of Ireland next month.

A poll run by asked readers to predict the upcoming series and an overwhelming 66% backed the Springboks to whitewash Ireland in the series.

What do you think? Who will come out on top next month?
