NZ to beat Boks, Wallabies can punish Pumas

530

More thrills and spills are expected in the Rugby Championship this weekend but it could be another case of home advantage being key.

The early games sees New Zealand take on South Africa in Albany. The pair currently occupy the top two places in the table and the All Blacks will expect to extend their lead.

Having drawn the series with the Lions, the Kiwis have looked like a team with a point to prove in the current tournament. Having rested some familiar faces against Argentina, Steve Hansen has brought the big guns back for this one and they will be out to smash their opponents.

The Boks appear to be bouncing back after a bad year in 2016 and will have been disappointed by last week’s draw against Australia.

However, they have not won in the Land of the Long White Cloud since 2009 and with the home win an extremely short price, the home win by 1-10 at 7/2 or by 11-20 at 5/2 both seem worth a punt.

Slightly later, Australia and Argentina go looking for their maiden victories of this year’s tournament when they meet each other in Canberra.

The Wallabies were second best to New Zealand in the opening two Bledisloe Cup clashes but have improved and showed some good stuff in their aforementioned draw with the Boks.

Discipline remains an issue for Argentina, with them seemingly reverting to childhood whenever they get a chance to smash someone or see the ball, regardless of it being on the wrong side.

It won’t be as good as the game across the Tasman but a home win is again likely so the Handicap FT for Australia at -13.5 seems decent at 20/21.
