What bookies say about SA vs Wales

2014-11-29 00:00

CAPE TOWN — The Springboks will beat Wales in a tight encounter in Cardiff today, if local bookmakers are to be believed.

Sportsbet.co.za has predicted a six-point victory for the Springboks in the clash at the Millennium Stadium.

Wales have failed to beat any of the southern hemisphere’s “Big Three” in their last 22 attempts and have only won once in 27 games since Warren Gatland took over as coach in January 2008. Their only victory came six years ago against Australia and following defeats against the Wallabies and All Blacks this month, they are desperate to beat South Africa.

Wales were unlucky to lose 31-30 to the Springboks in Nelspruit earlier this year, while they also came close to beating the Wallabies a few weeks ago, losing 33-28. During last week’s match against the All Blacks in Cardiff, Wales led 16-15 late in the game, before the All Blacks ran riot with three tries in the last 10 minutes to win 34-16.

The Springboks and Wales have faced each other on 29 occasions, with the Boks winning 27 of those. Wales’s only victory came in Cardiff in 1999, while there was also a draw in 1970.
