I will start off by saying that the Waratahs have absolutely ZERO chance of winning this one, I may be bold enough to say they have almost no chance of staying within twenty.
The Waratahs had an amazing comeback last week, I did call the win, but at HT I felt they were gone, so that part I benefitted, but certainly did not expect. Waratahs have played fourteen matches in SA since the conference system started and have won only four times, only one of those was a victory in the city of gold, but it was in In the Lions beat the Reds away, the Brumbies at home, lost to all of the SA teams, bar the Cheetahs who finished last, and only won four games, the force thumped them by forty one, they beat the Highlanders by five, who as it happened finished one spot up on the Super Rugby ladder by a solitary point also winning four games.
Todd Clever became the first American to play Super Rugby, my eldest son was only six and without too much maths that was nine years ago, the Lions as we know are a different animal to those old days!! This year the Lions went to Sydney and thrashed the Tahs by twenty nine, last year the Lions had not played any NZ opposition and again pulverised the Waratahs by nineteen. Waratahs are not much better than they were two years ago, if anything the Brumbies have worsened and the Waratahs have played an average season, sure they broke the forty odd losing streak to the kiwi sides, but they are up against it this weekend, in fact they are so far out of their depth they will not know what hit them.
If the Crusaders win this weekend the Lions will make the long haul trip over to Christchurch and whilst they will be double digit plus outsiders, I feel they may just have a chance. Sadly the final will not be in Sydney, it has an eighty percent chance of being in Christchurch, but small puntable chance of being in Joburg, if I am correct here and the Lions do in fact murder the Waratahs, and the Canes do the Lions a favour in Christchurch, I would be again bold enough to say that this Lions team will win the trophy at their third attempt.
They were again for the third year in a row head and shoulders above any other SA team. My call is an aggressive play at a reasonable price, just giving back two extra points than last week, but against weaker opposition in my opinion!! Normally I go plus when to NZ teams go head to head, but this week I feel the right way to go is with the winning habit team, winning as they say is a habit. Hurricanes have only won one of their last four, against the Blues, and we know how crap they are, the Chiefs on the other hand have won three of their last four including an outsider win v the Canes.
I will not play around here, the value is undoubtedly with the visitors and that is where I will go with a reasonable amount of confidence. Although they lost they showed that any team can go over the ocean and win, come back and win. The way I see it, if the Crusaders win this week they may well have another NZ team in the Chiefs or Hurricanes the following week.
Then they will play the Lions. So from a mathematical point of view I see this:. Anyway back to the game, so the Crusaders are priced up at a ridiculous The Bulls lost by nineteen and the Sharks are way better than the Bulls, and are way better at traveling. Sure the Hurricanes smashed them two years in a row, but this Sharks team has performed above expectations v NZ opposition this year. That is indeed where my money will go this year. Waratahs v Highlanders was my big play a while ago, the Waratahs could not get up and allowed the Highlanders to dictate matters.
Waratahs have been dished a home game against a team I liked pre-tournament, not sure why, but the last three weeks the Highlanders have played rubbish rugby. They have lost two of their last three and almost got embarrassed last week against an equally rubbish Rebels outfit. Four weeks ago they smashed the Hurricanes but when they arrived in Fiji they got done properly and their run ended. Unfortunately there are currently no active tips in this category.

Competitions, domestic and international run pretty much all-year round, which keeps the markets busy, with more and more Rugby Union tipsters taking advantage of live in-play odds, tournament outrights etc. However, it seems that more often than not there are a lot of shorter priced favourites, so outright winners might not be where the real money is. It's probably worth checking out rugby union handicap betting , where your chances of winning more cash is greatly increased, because the Rugby Union odds are predominantly offered to level up the market normally the 'smaller' teams don't win so often.
Thus a selection deemed inferior to the opposition team has a greater chance of winning the said rugby match. Each side in the yearly tournament plays each other once over seven gruelling weeks, with home games rotated on a yearly basis.
A shift in power over the last decade has made the tournament more difficult to call than ever before, with England and Ireland sharing the last four tournaments. England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland contest their own Triple Crown series during the Six Nations, which offers an alternative betting market.
Triple Crown success can only be achieved with a victory against the other three nations from the British Iles competing in the tournament. The Rugby Union World Cup is contested every four years between 20 teams and is hosted by winning bid nations in the north and southern hemisphere.
The first rugby world cup was hosted in and the winning team every time since is awarded the coveted William Webb Ellis Cup. Few would argue that the southern hemisphere rugby showpiece is the leading tournament after the Rugby World Cup. Due to the favourably dry conditions the pace of the game is substantially quicker and lends itself to an abundance of try scoring opportunities and more often than not fixtures end up as high scoring affairs. New Zealand have dominated the competition since that inclusion, winning three consecutive championships and losing just once in 18 matches.
The All Blacks now lead the way with 10 titles if you factor in Tri-Nations results dating back to , with South Africa and Australia lagging behind on three wins apiece. An invitation series of matches steeped in history, which sees a Lions select team made up of players from the British Isles travel to play New Zealand, South Africa or Australia. The Lions have toured a Southern Hemisphere nation to play a three-match series once roughly every four years since , although success has proved difficult to come by since the turn of the century.
A sole victory in the last 15 years came in Australia. That success in came against Australia, coached by Warren Gatland and aided by the trusty boot of Welshman Leigh Halfpenny. The next Lions Tour will represent the ultimate challenge when they head down south to take on the mightly All Blacks. The Tour will consist of three internationals however prior to these Tests they face the daunting prospect of taking on New Zealand's finest in their Super XV franchises and the Maori All Blacks.
With ten matches on this iconic tour, betting opportunities will be plenty alongside many points that will be expected. Topping the table is no longer a guarantee for championship success, with four teams qualifying for the post-season showdown. The format has helped create welcome unpredictability, with Saracens, Northampton Saints, Leicester Tigers and Harlequins all winning the Twickenham Grand Final in the last four seasons.
