Springboks unlikely to get within 15 points of All Blacks side, says analyst

The New Zealand All Blacks will face the Springboks for the Rugby Championship clash at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Saturday.

The All Blacks have been on a winning streak.

It's reported that the side has won 11 of its last 12 encounters, including the last six by an average margin of 23 points.

Meanwhile, the Springboks have lost their last two matches in the competition.

It's predicted that the All Blacks are on the verge of clinching their third successive title with two games remaining.

Rugby writer Mark Keohane says it's unrealistic to expect a victory from the Bokke.

Watch if you enjoy watching a good rugby team play. The All Blacks are particularly good.

Mark Keohane, Rugby Writer

It would be unrealistic to expect them [Springboks] to get within 15 points of this All Blacks side, in this Rugby Championship, in this Wellington.

Mark Keohane, Rugby Writer

The All Blacks have been exceptional for the last decade, and we [Springboks] have probably been going through one of our worst spells in a 100-year history.

Mark Keohane, Rugby Writer

To expect anything other than a fairly comfortable New Zealand win would be madness.
