Cape Town - Sport24 readers seem supremely confident of a convincing win this weekend for the Springboks against Scotland in Edinburgh.

Despite the a string of unconvincing recent results against the world's ninth ranked team (a 31-17 victory in Nelspruit earlier this year, a 21-10 victory in Edinburgh on last year's end of year tour and a 21-17 loss at Murrayfield in 2010), most Sport24 readers believe the Boks will take the match at a canter in what is widely regarded as the Springboks' easiest November fixture.

According to the poll on the Sport24 homepage, almost 90% of readers predicted a win of 'more than 7 points' for the Springboks.

The Test kicks off at 17:00 on Sunday.

Sport24 asked:

After South Africa's 24-15 win over Wales, how do you see them doing against Scotland in Edinburgh next weekend?

These were the results:

89% - Boks by more than 7
5% - Boks by 7 or less
3% - Scotland by more than 7
2% - Too close to call because we sometimes struggle at Murrayfield!
1% - Scotland by 7 or less



The 31-17 scoreline against Scotland earlier this year in Nelspruit flattered the Springboks. (Gallo Images)
