Cape Town - Rugby lovers in South Africa are not holding out much hope for a Springbok win against England at Twickenham on Saturday. 

According to a Sport24 poll which asked readers for their predictions this week, the Springboks and coach Allister Coetzee are in trouble.

66% of the voters felt that the Boks would lose by 8 points or more while 9% felt that they would lose by 7 points or fewer. 

That means three-quarters of voters (75%) are expecting the Boks to lose. 

Some 17% believe the Boks will win by 7 points or less while just 6% expect South Africa to win "convincingly" - by 8 points or more. 

Just 1% of voters are predicting a draw. 

Kick-off on Saturday is at 16:30 (SA time).
