Cape Town - Allister Coetzee has one match left in 2016 to convince his bosses - and the South African rugby public - that he is still the man for the job. 

SA Rugby have confirmed that they will hold a review of the 2016 season upon completion of the Boks' end of year tour before making any decisions, but it is not looking good for Coetzee right now, regardless of what happens in Cardiff on Saturday. 

Sport24 conducted an poll, asking readers what they would like to see happen to the Bok coach, and the results where overwhelming. 

86% of the over 9 000 participants said that he should "Abso-flipping-lutely" be fired at the end of the year regardless of what happens on Saturday while just 6% thought it a good idea to see how the Boks went against Wales before making any big decisions. 

There were also 8% who said that the Boks should keep Coetzee, based on the fact there was nobody better available. 

A similar poll was conducted on the News24 homepage, and the results there were equally damning of Coetzee. 

85% of those 22 500 participants believed that Coetzee should go, while just 15% believed he should stay. 

Wales v South Africa kicks off at 19:30 (SA time) on Saturday.
