International Rugby, Betting Preview 9 July
July 8, 2022

We take a look at 3 of the Rugby Internationals taking place on Saturday and suggest a bet in each of them.

The South Africa v Wales 2nd Test has its own Preview and you can click here to read it



This game takes place under the roof in Dunedin so we know conditions will be absolutely  perfect and with South African referee, Peyper in possession of the whistle the points could well flow in this one.

Going back to last week, Ireland started superbly scoring first again New Zealand and the 10 point handicap looked a long way from arriving for New Zealand punters. The All Blacks then turned it on in typical style running in 4 first-half tries before eventually closing out the game 42-19.  Ireland will look back on the game and feel that they made errors at key times and should not have lost the game by over 20 points.

New Zealand 1/7

Draw 30/1

Ireland 11/2

Handicap:  New Zealand -13.5


Suggested Bet:  New Zealand win by under 12.5 points at 17/10

This should be another thrilling test match and I am expecting Ireland to have learnt from their mistakes from last week and to keep it much closer so I am looking for a home win, but by 12 points or less.



This match takes place in Brisbane and England will be looking to level the series with one game to play. They were very popular with punters last week with the handicap moving in from (+5.5) to (+1.5), but despite the Australians getting a red card in the first-half, the English were unable to deliver the victory and in fact it turned out to be a very impressive Australian performance with only two late English tries making the score line look respectable, 30-28 to the home team.

The pressure is certainly on English coach, Eddie Jones heading into this one and looking at the two squads I do feel that Australia are stronger than last week and should be able to put this England side away.

Australia 4/6

Draw 25/1

England 29/20

Handicap:  Australia -2.5


Suggested Bet:  Half-time/Full-time, Australia/Australia at 12/10

I am looking for the Wallabies to burst out of the blocks and grab an early lead which they will hold when heading into the sheds at half-time before ultimately kicking on to win the match.


Argentina started 5 point favourites at home to Scotland last week and they narrowly beat that handicap with a late penalty getting them to an 8 point win.

Scotland were very good in patches on the night and can perhaps feel hard done by, by some of the decisions that went against them.

Looking at the teams, Scotland have strengthened their squad a bit and I think we are in for another titanic and close struggle.

Argentina 40/85

Draw 22/1

Scotland 2/1

Handicap:  Argentina -5.5


Suggested Bet:  First Try Scorer, Darcy Graham at 12/1

I think the handicap for this game is well set and if forced I would back Scotland to stay within the 5.5 points.  For now just an interest for me on the First Try Scorer I am going for Scottish winger, Darcy Graham.
