Sportsbet's Rugby Refund as World Cup Reaches Sudden Death Stage
October 13, 2015

There are 8 finals games and Sportsbet have a rugby refund on every remaining match.

Quarter Final Odds
South Africa and Wales will get the quarter finals underway at Twickenham! After an embarrassing loss to Japan in their opening match, the Springboks bounced back in style to easily top their Pool. They’re $1.30 favourites against a Welsh side who beat the odds to get out of the Group of death. Wales are around $3.60 to send South Africa home!
New Zealand face France in a replay of the 2011 World Cup Final. While the reigning champions beat Les Bleus on that occasion the French have a habit of upsetting the All Blacks in this competition. The Kiwis cruised through their pool without playing anywhere near their best; while France finished second in their group after a losing to Ireland in the top of the table clash. They’re $5 outsiders to stun New Zealand yet again… can they do it once more?
Ireland and Argentina will battle it out at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. The unbeaten Irish are around $1.50 favourites to get past the Pumas and advance to their first ever semi final. Ireland’s odds almost certainly would be smaller had they not suffered injuries to key players in their victory over the French. Argentina have been one of the most exciting sides at the tournament and the South American underdogs will believe they can beat their more fancied opponents. Argentina are paying $2.65.
Australia are the shortest priced quarter final favourites at just $1.10 to beat Scotland. The Wallabies were wonderful in the Pool stage and look like they could go all the way. The Scots though have beaten Australia twice in their past 3 encounters but they’re $7 to do so this time around.
