Rugby World Cup Betting Tips
It’s England v New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup Semi Finals this weekend. It’s by far England’s biggest test of the World Cup so far, after strolling through the Pools and the knockout stages so far. Eddie Jones’ side have won 4 from 4 so far and were hugely impressive in their win over Australia in the quarters. In New Zealand however, they face the pre season favourites and rugby union’s biggest nation. The All Blacks are also 4 from 4 in their games so far. Last time out, they came up against Ireland, the current number 1 side in the world. The end result looked far from that though with New Zealand coming out as 46-14 winners to set up Saturday’s match.
A lot of England’s hopes will rest on the shoulders of Leicester Tigers winger Jonny May. May has 3 tries from 4 games so far in Japan, and in total has managed to score in 6 of his last 10 games for England. His pace will be a vital asset against the brute strength of the All Blacks, so expect England to use it frequently. At Bet UK’s online betting, we’ve boosted England To Win and Jonny May To Score A Try from 7/1 to 10/1.
