Ireland v New Zealand, Saturday, 7pm

The All Blacks have had a few slow starts this year already and as England showed last week they are liable to be caught off-guard in the early stages. For that reason Ireland/New Zealand in the Half Time/Full Time market is worth a bet at 9/2.

If you are looking for a tryscorer bet in this game we wouldn’t put you off some bigger prices here as if Ireland start quickly as expected they could see themselves picking and going around the New Zealand line. Cian Healy  at 40/1 and James Ryan at 50/1 would be likely candidates in this case for First Tryscorer.

And if you are looking for a bet to keep your interest all game the Man of the Match market is worth looking at. The standout bet for me here is Peter O’Mahony at 10/1 – he’s sure to have some standout moments at the lineout and breakdown.

Best of the Rest

England v Japan: Jamie George First and Anytime Tryscorer at 6/1 & 1/2 – He’s likely to be at the back of a dominant English maul.

Wales v TongaTonga +17 at 10/11 – Wales’ history in the November Internationals against the lowest ranked team they play is appalling and nothing from the squad they have named suggests this will be any different.

Scotland v South Africa: Scotland Win at 13/10 – South Africa have played two tough games already in the last two weeks v England and France. Scotland had a light run-out v Fiji last week, and the Springboks are also missing their best player in Faf de Klerk.
