Get a $100 Refund With Sportsbet If Australia Fall Short Again
November 28, 2013
Australia will look to right the wrong of five years ago, in this weekend’s Rugby League World Cup Final.
After sailing through to the 2008 Final, the Kangaroos threw away the trophy they’d held since 1975 with a 34-20 loss to New Zealand.
With another straight forward route to the final this time round, Australia will be hoping history doesn’t repeat itself. However, if it does, Sportsbet have you covered.
Simply back Australia to win in their Head-to-Head market and – should New Zealand win by 10 points or less – Sportsbet will refund up to $100 of your bet. For more information on this great offer, click here.
The Kangaroos have not conceded a try since George Burgess ran over for England in the tournament’s opening game and will be confident of being able to see off a Kiwi side with less experience.
The Kiwi’s vice-captain Kieran Foran has even spoke out at the contrast in quality between the two country’s core units.
THe 24-year-old said: “Their spine is the best in the world and has been for many years. They’ll probably finish their careers as greats, if not immortals.
“Our spine is young (and) we’re still learning. We know that if we are to beat Australia, then our spine has got to be better than theirs.”
However, New Zealand are known to up their game on the big occasions – as their 2008 triumph was matched with a Four Nations Final victory against Australia two years later – which could see them edge out the Kangaroos yet again.
With both sides desperate to regain or retain the trophy at Wembley, it could make for a gripping final.
