October 20, 2015
Sportsbet members who backed Wales to upset South Africa in the first rugby World Cup quarter final got their money back after the Springboks stole victory despite trailing at half time. And if a similar scenario happens in South Africa’s Semi final with the All Blacks, more money will go back to punters.

Awesome All Blacks are Firm Favourites
New Zealand may have meandered through their Pool but boy didn’t they turn it up a notch in their first knockout match… The All Blacks were simply scintillating against France racking up 9 tries in the biggest world cup victory during the finals stages. The 62-13 win has seen the tournament favourites firm even more and their now under $1.60 to lift the Web Ellis Trophy for a third time. The defending champions are paying around $1.25 with Sportsbet to beat the Boks and book their place in the decider.
New Zealand aiming to even up World Cup Ledger
The All Blacks beat South Africa in Johannesburg in the pair’s only clash this year. The Kiwis 27-20 victory was their fourth win in the past five games against the Springboks. The underdogs have the edge when it comes to World Cup clashes however, with South Africa winning two of their three encounters. The most famous victory being their triumph in the 1995 final in Johannesburg. That contest is also the last time the pair faced off against one another in the competition.
The Springboks are still Stinging from their embarrassing opening loss to Japan but they’ll surely be forgivepn if they return home as World Cup Champions. But before they can play off for that honour, they must cause their own upset this weekend.
