Did you take maths at one of the schools operating at present. How do you get to a 60% of supporters thinking the Irish would win?
If I look at the figures provided above - 78% of the people polled think that the Springboks will win - of which 40% believe in a biggish win and 38% apparently think it is going to be a nailbiter
The Irish is supported by 22% of the voters.
I do not take much cognisance of polls of this nature - they are normally way out, as happened in the case of the CC Final. I think most supportrs do not really consider the potentila game itself - they vote out of loyaalty - nothing else.
I still think it is going to be touch and go - with a faint suspucion that the Irish will win. Meyer's weird squad really inspires no confidence and the Irish has home ground advantage.
