    If anyone fancies joining my (free and easy to sign up) Telegraph fantasy RWC league

  • So if you had a free win single £1000 bet at current odds

    • at a guess
      NZ 6/5
      SA & Eng 5/1
      Ire & Wales 10/1
      Aus 16s
      ARG 33/1
      Who would you go for?
  • SA. Saw them a 8-1 a few weeks ago and thought that was a great bet.

  • What odds are France? (Destined to be losing Finalists!)

  • They are looking good.

    Edit: South Africa I mean

  • Just read a bit more about Howley, apperently there will be a press conference tomorrow am (our time) with more details.

    It was the WRU who sent him home, and rule six is pretty clear: if rugby is your profession you can't bet on it. Could be a lifetime ban.

  • Couple of journos suggest he’s been under investigation for up to two months. Why would they take him then?

  • Because they've got the right feathers in their emblem?

  • Yes me too when I saw them at 8s- 1/3 odds top 2 was outstanding value at the time.
    @c00ps France 33/1-40/1 winners would translate to about 9/1 to reach final I reckon

  • Reminds me of when the Tory party starter to do memes

  • Come on let's get some more teams in the league - see my posts a few up the thread (or someone start an LFGSS League)

  • Does anyone know of a pub showing a really early match? I'd like to be pissed before breakfast time, ideally. Under the pretence of watching rugby

  • I appear to have got myself into trouble with Mrs Bobbo.

    She has taken exception to me betting against the country of her birth. I backed Fiji by 5 @ 9/1, Fiji has a very tasty looking lineup, I think they have at least one big performance in them.

  • That is one hell of a team with 2 of the most dynamic forwards in Nakawara and Mata

  • wire fans going berserk on twitter

  • So whilst I have an affinity with Fiji (which rugby player/fan doesn't) and moreso due to the Matavesi family link to Cornish rugby (I've personally played against Sam and Joel within the last 5-6 years) I was chatting with my pal saying what good value Aus-15 are. I haven't bet much in years but at the last world cup won probably 80+% of 10/11 handicap bets blindly backing the outsider ie Romania +65 Vs France. This time, a quick glance (France -1 Wales -27 Eng -39 and Aus -15) make me think they've gone too far the other way...they're obviously still reeling from the fact I took them (the bookies) for the best part of £60 4 years ago!!!

  • Is Tevita Cavubati the son of Big Bill?

  • Yes.

    Squidge rugby reckons that Semi Radradra is the Fijian player to watch but I think that was mostly so he could make lots of comments about him not being a semi but a full blown stiffy.

  • Hard to handle etc.

  • He's torn up the Top 14 looking unplayable at times. Young Damian Penaud (son of French 10/12 Alain) looks a superb old school winger, and barely 20 I believe

  • Just had a look at his highlights reel on YouTube:

    Boy is tasty

  • Penaud is a quality player. Plays 13 in club rugby also.

  • Yes, looked a cut above at u-20s and quite frankly has continued his upward curve into the seniors. Think he'll have a great WC
