Rugby World Cup 2019 Outright Tips & Preview

As is always true New Zealand mind the betting for the World Cup, but after an extremely indifferent Rugby Championship effort (that comprised a draw with South Africa and uninspiring victory over Argentina) they have drifted to a ideal cost of 11/8 was as short as evens just a few weeks ago.
If they deliver their they are the best side in the world, but I do not believe the difference between the All Blacks and the chasing bunch is as big as it’s been in decades.
Is South Africa, that got two World Cup wins and appear ready to join New Zealand as the only side to win world titles.
Since taking control of the Springboks in 2018 head coach Rassie Erasmus has turned into a side who looked to be moving. They finished second a tournament announced the Boks were back. They beat the All Blacks 36-34 in Wellington before a loss that is narrow to the facet in Pretoria.
2019 saw South Africa claim their first Rugby Championship title. An experimental group dismantled Australia in round one, before drawing 16-16 with all New Zealand thanks to Herschel Jantjies last gasp try (search for him to earn a significant impact at this championship ). The title was secured by the Boks.
As you would expect the Boks boast the most powerful and damaging pack in the world. Everywhere you look you see celebrity names and bodily players. Although the loss of Aphiwe Dyantyi to a failed drug evaluation is a significant blow to proceed with this power they have an explosive back-line with none but three game changers in scrum-half.
They open their tournament with against New Zealand. A triumph on September 21st would visit South Africa top the pool and face Japan, Scotland or even Ireland from the quarter-finals. However, having looked at the permutations a loss wouldn’t be the end of the planet, given the draw may collapse.
To sum-up this looks to become South Africa’s best chance at World Cup glory since 2007. They’ve a bunch that strikes fear a world class half-back combination with environments that are electric and Handre Pollard and Faf De Klerk. They’re well coached and maybe most crucially they have no fear of playing New Zealand (which maybe can’t be said of other areas ).
They would be my selection that is straight.
I had been critical of the French during the Six Nations, they were minute only. Average France.
And in typically fashion I have been suckered by them into thinking they could once more be contenders in the World Cup, in which they have played above expectations. Following England, Les Bleus have almost any northern hemisphere side’s World Cup pedigree, having finished runners-up on three events.
There is not any doubting that on newspaper Jacques Brunel has one of the very talented squads at the championship, similar to South Africa they can subject a ferociously strong pack together with electric backs — no matter how much they get I anticipate winger Damian Penaud to be one of the celebrities of the competition.
It’s merely a case of whether they have the structure and savvy to put it together and get out of a group which includes England and Argentina (but at the second Los Pumas look a shadow of the former self).
If they could negotiate the group point (and potentially win the group) then nobody is going to want to face a confident and totally firing French side.
So with 2 locations on offer at 40/1, they are well worth taking a opportunity.
As I have tipped France and South Africa it would be dumb not to have a punt to meet in the final, which can be cost of 100/1 and value a little nibble.
