Apologies to all regarding the Australia result and a losing Max Bet. I haven’t seen the Aussie’s function so poorly as a unit in a very long time. Conditions didn’t help but they were inept and yet still won by 19 points. They really should have been capable of winning by a much greater margin!!
An intriguing weekend, unfortunately we have already lost two big games due to the weather, we may yet lose more gametime, so we will steer clear of the weather and I offer you 2 matches that are on, one game you wouldn’t normally look twice at
Ireland vs Samoa 12/10/19 11:45am BST
Samoa have been a let down for me this tournament, I know this has turned out to be an ultra competitive pool, but they haven’t been at the standard I expected of them. I don’t expect any different from them Saturday, as with other sides already out of the tournament, they will already have one foot on the plane home
Ireland are a different proposition. They have picked a really strong team to ensure no mistakes are made. They want 5 points and a dominant win to give them a big boost going into the quarters where they are likely to meet the biggest test in rugby union, the All Blacks at a world cup
Big game for Ireland and a very one sided result
Ireland -28 handicap 10/11 (most major bookies) – WON
Namibia vs Canada 13/10/19 4:15am BST (Game Cancelled)
A game most people wouldn’t take a second look at, but I think a Namibia win here is a great bet. Just looking at their performances in this World Cup, I take both teams results against South Africa and New Zealand with a pinch of salt, as the gulf in class is huge. But the Italians are an easier marker. Namibia scored 3 good tries against them and offer so much more going forwards than the Canadians.
Namibia win EVS (skybet, other 10/11)
Play them both as singles. And if it goes ahead on sunday, enjoy what could be a very special match between Japan and Scotland. No money on it so you are able to watch without any bias and enjoy the spectacle
