Rugby League World Cup 2013

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 Sunday previews: 4pts Cook Islands to beat Wales 13/10 Boylesports I’ve seen nothing to suggest Wales are significantly better than the Cook Islands in this tournament and while being out of the event could free them up to give the ball some air and play their best rugby the same thing could be said for the Cooks. They are a proud nation and if they can repeat their performance against Tonga earlier in the week that could well be enough to grab a consolation win before they head home. Full preview here: http://www.punterslounge.com/wales-vs-cook-islands-betting-cook-islands-can-leave-the-competition-with-a-win-in-wales 3pts Tonga (-4) to beat Italy 10/11 Coral A lot of this match will depend on the attitude of the Tongans. If they are up for going out with a win I think they’ll get it but if they don’t care then Italy have enough to turn them over. This tournament has all been about showcasing their talents and their country for the minnows in this tournament so I expect a decent performance from the Tongans and with their power all over the field that should be enough to win here.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 Monday preview: 4pts Samoa (-12) to beat France 10/11 Ladbrokes I’ve been very disappointed with France so far in this tournament. They’ve looked like a side who are scared to break out and something is going to have to give here. Their forwards are offering little platform for the backs who aren’t exactly breaking the line or looking like doing so. Samoa have no such issues. They have tons of power but the backs have the necessary skill and I would expect a comfortable Samoan win here.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 Any chance anyone could put my mind at rest on a bet settlement query? I backed Waqa to score a try for Fiji v England on Saturday and the bet has been voided on the basis of him taking no part in the game. I believe that to be correct but this site shows him playing and scoring the 2nd try. http://www.scoresway.com/?sport=rugby&page=match&id=15486 Every other site attributes that try to Semi Radrada or Waqavatu, which I assume is 2 different names for the same person (some sites list him one way in the team line ups and the other in the try scorers section)! Leaving aside the Radrada/Waqavatu conundrum (so good they named him twice, with 2 different names), I'd appreciate any confirmation that Waqa didn't participate in the game and my bet was, therefore, correctly voided.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013

That site is wrong mate. Their 3/4 line was Koroibete, D Millard, W Naiqama and Semi Radradra :ok.
Thanks for that. I didn't really doubt it but, when there's a potential winning bet at stake, I thought it was worth double checking. Also had to nudge Fred today to refund 2 non-runners that they'd settled as losers! Good luck with your bet tonight, a different France will need to show up if you're going to be disappointed.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 Friday night preview: 4pts New Zealand vs France - Over 59.5pts 5/6 Ladbrokes One thing we can guarantee with Scotland is they will leave nothing on the field in this match. Anyone who has seen that video doing the rounds of them cheering on the Tongans against Italy on Sunday will see how up for this the Scots are. They stood up well to the physical battle that Tonga provided which bodes well although New Zealand offer more quality and more support than Tonga did. Scotland have threats going the other way though so there should be plenty of points in this quarter final.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 Quarter final 2 preview: 3pts USA (+56) to beat Australia 10/11 Ladbrokes You’d need to be a real sporting romantic to believe USA have a chance in this match. While they’ll talk well ahead of the game if they can just keep it competitive that would be like a win for them. The USA have shown they can defend their line but they’ll need to be at their best against some stars in this Australian side. Nevertheless they get a 56 point start which could be a touch big with Australia likely to ease up in the second half to preserve energy for next week.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 QF 3 preview: 4pts England (-36) to beat France 10/11 Ladbrokes England walked all over France twice last year in the three nations and I see nothing that makes me think this will be any different. Although England haven’t impressed for a full 80 minutes in the tournament yet I do think they have built up for this match. Everyone has seen game time and they should be looking to put their attacking combinations together. Steve McNamara says England won’t go easy on the French but even if they do I still think they’ll be at least 36pts too good for the French.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 Sunday preview: 4pts Samoa (-2) to beat Fiji 10/11 Paddy Power Samoa have looked a good side right throughout this tournament and while their power may be combated slightly by Fiji the quality in their backs, particularly their halves, won’t be and that can be the end difference for me. I love the way Samoa have played in this tournament. They have been brutal but they’ve given the ball some air and allowed their big players to make plays and I think they’ll have a bit too much for Fiji here.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 SF previews: 4pts England (+8) to beat New Zealand Evs Skybet All through this tournament I’ve expected New Zealand to beat England and I probably still do but Manu Vatuvei’s injury could well make this match a bit closer than it originally looked. I like Gareth Widdop playing for England and I just wonder if McNamara will pull the masterstroke of all masterstrokes and play him at full back and Tompkins in the halves. Whichever way England line up I struggle to believe there will be more than a score between these two in what should be an explosive, high quality semi final.

We’ve seen how proud a nation they are throughout this tournament. Ultimately their efforts will be in vain but they are good enough at both ends of the field to avoid being routed. Australia will win the game but they’ll have to work harder to break the Fijians down than they did the Americans last week and at some point they’ll preserve energy for the final so I’m confident Fiji will stay within 40 here.

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 World cup final preview: New Zealand vs Australia Australia to by 11/15 points 7/1 skybet Jarryd Hayne to score two tries 2/1 skybet Brett Morris to score first 8/1 skybet Sonny Bill Williams to score a try 5/2 skybet Brett Morris to be Man of the match 28/1 skybet i think Australia will win this because they dont want to lose two finals in a row so they are desperate to win this i think it will be close by half time but Australia to edge the second half because of their quality i fancy them to score the first try and Hayne to keep scoring the tries as the the opposition will tire trying to get back into the game i fancy Williams to score as he is a big time player and also has a chance of being man of the match if his team wins but i think they will come up short so maybe Morris might get it

Re: Rugby League World Cup 2013 Final preview: 4pts New Zealand (+10) to beat Australia 10/11 Coral I absolutely can’t wait for this final. This tournament as a whole has been fantastic and this final is set to be the perfect conclusion. These two sides are the best in the world but New Zealand were taken to the trenches by England last week and I think that will have done them no harm. They know what they have to fall back on. Australia don’t but they are driven by revenge. It is all set up to be a classic and just like last week’s semi final I wouldn’t be surprised if it is decided late on. At the worst I expect New Zealand to stay within a score but don’t be surprised if Sonny Bill and co get the job done here.
