I put a sizeable chunk of money (for me) on New Zealand pre tournament. 6/5 odds are quite generous considering their elitism in the sport.
Can cash out if they are shakey at the quarters/semi's for a profit if need be. But i fully expect them to make the final.

Also PP top tryscorer seemed a great deal. Bet 25 and every time your try scorer gets a try you get 5 euro free bet.
Without knowing much i stuck it on New Zealands top man for tries, Julian Savea (who got 2 tonight!). So at 4/1 its looking quite a decent bet.

The overs/unders just confuse me so happy enough to have these two bets to keep my interest.

yeah i don't know shit about the players, so knowing that there are a hell of a lot of whippings in teh group stage is about as far as my knowledge will take me.
9 tries wasn't enough for me yesterday though

No fuss for Ireland. Looks like Bowe picked up an injury though

Another brilliant game. Aussies have been unreal with 13 men. Come on Wales. Possibility of Meeting them in the semis would be great

Australia to win it outright at 11/4 is great odds.

Some performance.

We look pretty, but we're not really going anywhere. Dangerous from the line out, but that's about it so far

French lads putting in some crunching tackles. We'll be down to waterboys in the quarters.

Disastrous first half for us, Sexton and O'Connell probably done for the tournament

Looks like it'll be Denmark in the playoffs rather than Albania. Further incentive.

i'm going to take a guess that you posed this in the wrong thread :lol:

massive second half from the players. with the 3 injuries to key players it was amazing they kept their heads up and won the game. i'd be terrified if we had to play the all blacks if we played like we did in the first half/against italy. we should beat Argentina handy enough.

there'll be no Sean o Brien in the quarters on top of the injuries. Some hit though

Tell you what though. Ireland's Call is one of the most detestable pieces of music in history.

It's a bit bland but don't get the hate for it
