Re: Autumn Rugby Internationals

I will probably have a go on the AB's game, nothing like abit of early morning degenerate action just before the NFL starts.

Just waiting on a few pieces of info, If I take anything will post it.

Re: Autumn Rugby Internationals

Australia v Wales starts in 3 hours, books can't split the two teams at the moment, pretty much at evens.

Just checking to make sure Latham is starting for Australia as he apparently pulled up in the team's run yesterday

Arbers would have be out in force on this game....earlier in the week I saw Wales 2.20 now a couple of UK books have Australia around the even money mark.

Pass for me on this one, GL BG hope u win.

Re: Autumn Rugby Internationals

All the big guns are back for Wales - guys like Henson, Ryan Jones, Shanklin after over a year out of International rugby.

Tip my hatoff to Connolly for trying something different, basically rejigged the Wallabies whole backline for this with most of the players playing out of position. Australia has always had the class in the backs, just been looking stale recently with a lot of players being wasted like Lote. On paper if the backline get it right they have the potential to be one of the most potent in the world as basically they all are ball runners.

But think this match is a little too early for the new combination to click. Peel is easily the best scrum half in the world and I'm sure he will exploit the fact that player are playing out of position so defensively won't be as sound. Should be a attacking game of rugby, both sides should throw the pill around but going to back the full strength home team - however think this is the only game Australia will drop on the tour...

Wales to beat Australia - $2.00


good luck

Draw so refunded bet

What a cracking game, running and attacking rugby for the full 80min. VEry happy with how the Wallaby backline fared and I think Connolly is on to something with the setup of Giteau at 9, Rogers at 10 and Bernie at 12

Now if only we can find a front row Dave how about you guys lending us Hayman and Woodcock for a little while?

I don't see why the two countries can't do a trade for the development in areas where they are weak......Hayman and Woodcock for Brett Lee and Punter Ponting

Re: Autumn Rugby Internationals

If you stack the two teams together on paper Kiwis should annihlate them - but as we saw on Saturday night in the league, not won on paper

GL mate hope the Poms get within the number.

Re: Autumn Rugby Internationals

Hitting this now, this line is a joke, Italians won't win but they'll keep it close - game is on Saturday

Italy to cover +24 v Australia - $1.90

good luck

Re: Autumn Rugby Internationals

But once again the Australian game wil be a sideshow to the main event - France v AB's

What a cracking game that has the potential to be

21 is right on 3 converted tries, still believe it's a solid number - I had this game at around +/- 16.5

Bottom line the 6 Nations this year showed Italy are not the pushovers (they went 5-0 ATS in the tournament) as they used to be and all their players now play for big European club sides. They also faced and held out far superior tight 5's then the one Australia will put out on Saturday afternoon.

Last 20min of this game is going to be key IMO in terms of cover.
