Dragons ready to fire at RFK

368
Warren Gatland

Wales and South Africa meet in the RFK Stadium in Washington on Saturday evening and both sides have plenty of reasons to hope for a positive result.

Wales enjoyed a decent Six Nations campaign as they finished second behind Grand Slam champions Ireland, winning three of their five matches.

Wales to win – 39/20

Head coach Warren Gatland may have a much-changed and youthful line-up out for the clash with the Springboks, but there is still plenty of talent on display and the Dragons have enjoyed victories in three of their last four meetings with South Africa.

The Springboks are 4/11 to claim victory themselves and that may prove to be a bit skinny to go for as they are also a side in transition, with the last game they played a 24-22 defeat to Wales in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in early December.

South Africa to score first – 20/29

The first score of the game can have a major impact on the flow of the game and the two teams have shared that honour across their last four meetings, with Wales racing into a 14-0 lead the last time the sides faced each other.

However, the Springboks are the more likely to settle for an opening penalty rather than push for a try, so it makes more sense to opt to go with them when it comes to the first score market.

Wales to win by 1-10 points – 33/10

With the Dragons having claimed the bragging rights three times out of four in recent meetings, they may just have a little too much for the Springboks, but it seems unlikely that either side will be able to run away with the game.

So expect a close encounter and if you are not sure which way to go, South Africa are also decent value at 41/20 to win by 1-10 points.
