Betting Tips

Australia vs Fiji – September 21st

Tip – Two strong Pacific Nations open their respective Rugby World Cup campaigns with a rollicking clash at Hokkaido’s Sapporo Dome. Both the Aussies and the Fijians will be looking to start well and get points on the board in order to lock down a quarter final spot.

Despite being put to the sword by the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup decider at Eden Park, the 47-26 victory over New Zealand and a strong win over Argentina will have given the Aussies confidence to defeat the Rugby Sevens’ specialists of Fiji.

New Zealand vs South Africa – September 21st

Tip – Despite an historic 36-0 over the Wallabies at Eden Park, New Zealand have looked very beatable in 2019 and not up to their usual high standards.

After being smashed by the Wallabies in Perth, narrowly defeating Argentina and a draw against the Springboks sees the once-invincible All Blacks prone to be upset. With South Africa over the odds here, these great odds can’t be ignored for an upset win by the Springboks.
