Online Betting On the Rugby World Cup
And Australia is unbackable favourites. The competition look pretty even. Originally Posted by rocketassist View Post.

Rugby League could be a great game, but there's just too few nations that play it.
Australia will most probably ease to victory as per usual, England have their best side in many years but I doubt it'll be enough. Will hopefully run them close at least. Scotland have managed to beat Australia twice in recent tour matches, in and , but overall the Wallabies have won 19 of 28 meetings, and it would be a brave man who bets against them making it 20 from 29 on Sunday.
The Green and Gold are expected to be too strong and hold too many questions for Scotland to answer, and it would be no surprise to see them put a flattering slant on the scoreline towards the end of the game as they exploit Scottish desperation, much as they did against England.
The Irish have made their way to the quarters in fine fashion, winning all four matches to top Pool D with 18 points. Their progress has come at a cost though, with several key players ruled out through injury or suspension. The missing players will be a loss to Ireland, but they have a squad ready to step up to the mark, with the likes of Chris Henry, Jordi Murphy and Iain Henderson in contention for starting berths.
After running New Zealand fairly close in their opening game, the Argentinians scored three impressive victories over Georgia, Tonga and Namibia to cruise into second place. None of those three rivals put up much of a fight however, and it will be interesting to see how they fare against a better side. Ireland have won the last five meetings, and 10 of 15 overall, so they definitely have the psychological edge going into the game.
Australia to beat Scotland Sunday 18th October, I played either prop or second line so neither position translates well into 7s. We were good one year. It was fun but a shit ton of running. These 7s are sadly way more fun to watch. Much quicker than regular rugby. It was still a newer thing back when I was playing but could definitely see how this is more fun to watch and play!!! Every time I watch any type of rugby I'm always amazed there aren't more injuries Except womens' rugby.
I caught a glimpse of some of that in this tourney. Some sports like tennis don't lose much in translation from males to females but that womens' rugby looked pretty bad. There is Rugby Union and Rugby League. Sevens is a shorten form of Rugby Union. This post was nominated 1 time.
