2015 Rugby World Cup

There are just four teams left as we head into the semi-finals of the 2015 Rugby World Cup and all four will be dreaming to be part of the Rugby World Cup Final on the 31st October. There is no representation from the Northern hemisphere as New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Argentina battle it out for the final two positions. We preview the semi-finals, which promise to be very exciting.

South Africa vs New Zealand – Twickenham, Sunday 2:00am AEDST

When the Springboks lost their opening game to Japan, the critics were circling against them. Most of them doubted if South Africa would even progress through the Pool stage, let alone reach the Semi-Finals. But, here they are, having picked up their game and one win away from a chance at the trophy. Their 23-19 win against Wales in the Quarter-Finals was a well-deserved victory. But, the task is now huge with a dominating New Zealand team waiting for them.

The All Blacks have not been in ominous form in the tournament but there is no denying the fact that they are the best side so far. Their 62-13 victory over France must have set the alarm bells ringing for the other nations. The All Blacks are expected to win the trophy, no less, and are playing like champion material.

It won’t be easy but New Zealand should win well so happy to take them at the line of -8.5 at $1.90 at Sportsbet.

Tip: New Zealand at the line (-8.5) – $1.90 at Sportsbet

Argentina vs Australia – Twickenham, Monday 3:00am AEDST

Argentina provided the shock of the Quarters as they ran wild against Ireland. Their 43-20 win was not just a crushing display but also one of the performances of the tournament. The Pumas in this form should be difficult to handle for the Australians, but will they be able to summon their best game for two matches in a row is the big question.

In contrast, Australia just scraped past Scotland to earn their spot in the Semi-Finals. Their 35-34 victory was somewhat contentious but Michael Cheika was hugely relieved to put it past an average Scottish side. The Wallabies must have taken note of the rampaging Pumas and will have their strategy ready for the Semis. Their experience should carry them past the touch line in this vital clash.

Again Australia will start short-priced favourites so a line bet on Australia -6.5 at $1.90 at Sportsbet looks the best betting play.

For the trans-Tasman neighbours, this is another chance to move into a Final though South Africa and Argentina will be aiming to spoil the party. Get ready for another engaging performance from these nations.

Tip: Australia at the line (-6.5) – $1.90 at Sportsbet
