8.05am: New Zealand v Ireland

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action

Ireland (+9)

These Tests have been good, I thought last week caught a lot of people by surprise as New Zealand won fairly handily in the first game and it was good to see Ireland come back and level up this series. It’s going to make for an exciting Saturday.

NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?

Currently the handicap is at (-9). New Zealand, to me, that looks a bit big for them. I think it will be tighter than that. I think New Zealand will probably have too much overall but I can see it being quite a tight affair so I think New Zealand to Win but I’ll take Ireland (+9) on the handicap.

Ardie Savea Anytime Tryscorer

I’m going to go for Ardie Savea Anytime Tryscorer. He got two in the first Test and he unforunately had to go off as a result of the red card last week. I think he was really missed and that showed as they lost so Ardie Savea to Score Anytime looks a good bet to me.

11.10am: Australia v England

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action

Australia To Win

We’re currently at Australia (-3) on the handicap and I think that looks about right to me. Again, I think this one is going to be very tight. England, unfortunately for them, have a couple of injury issues with Maro Itoje and Sam Underhill in particular.

They’re big losses there. I think that does swing things in Australia’s favour and they showed they have the game plan to beat England in the first game. If they can back up that performance and put last week behind them I’ll take Australia to Win but I think it will be a tight game.

Taniela Tupou Anytime Tryscorer

I’m going to go with the Australia prop Taniela Tupou. Last week he came back into the side and he scored. He’s really dangerous when he gets close to the line as Australia are contantly looking to feed him the ball. He is a big man to try and take down so I think if he gets a sniff he’ll score. Taniela Tupou Anytime Tryscorer would be my tip there.
