Luxbet free bet bonus on Super Rugby Round 1
February 21, 2012
Super Rugby kicks off on Friday 24th February when the Blues and Crusaders meet at Eden
Park in Auckland to get the new season underway.
Australia’s favourite online bookmaker Luxbet is ramping up interest with a first round bonus in the head to head
market this weekend. Bet on a team in any of the seven Super Rugby fixtures at the weekend and if your team score three tries
but get beat, Luxbet will give you a free bet bonus equal to your stake.
Punters are entitled to one free bet bonus
on each game, up to a maximum $100 free bet per game.
Super Rugby is unique in that it’s the only tournament
in the world that is played across so many different time zones with clubs from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa
competing in the fifteen team tournament. While New Zealand’s top two sides go head to head in Auckland at 19:35 local
time (17:35 EDT), Brumbies entertain the visit of Western Force at 19:35 EDT in Canberra Stadium then in South Africa, Bulls
and Sharks clash at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria at 19:10 local time (Saturday 04:10 EDT). The multi time zone format makes it
difficult for Super Rugby fans to follow every game, but as it is the elite Rugby Union club tournament in the world, the fan
base is global.
Last year’s Super Rugby champions Queensland Reds go to New South Wales to renew a 130-
year-old rivalry against the Waratahs. With home advantage, Waratahs are bookies favourite for the Saturday night blockbuster
but will be without their new captain Rocky Elsom plus a couple of other key players.
The line up of round 1 games
is completed by Chiefs at home to Highlanders at Waikato Stadium while in South Africa Stormers welcome Hurricane to Newlands
Stadium in Cape Town and Lions entertain Cheetahs at Coca-Cola Park, Johannesburg.
