Sportsbet's Super Rugby State of Origin Special
March 05, 2015
The Super Rugby’s State of Origin will take centre stage at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night when Queensland and New South Wales face off in round 4. While the fierce rivalry should provide plenty of entertainment Sportsbet’s adding extra excitement with its Opening Tryscorer money back special. Punters who place a first tryscorer bet on the encounter will be refunded up to $100 if their selection scores a try that isn’t the opener. So even if your man doesn’t make his mark early in the game as long as he crosses the white line at least once in the 80 minutes you’ll get your cash back.
Reds Finding Five Pointers Hard to Find
The pair have scored eight tries between them from five matches in the 2015 campaign. It’s no secret the Reds have struggled to score tries this season. In fact the Queenslanders have managed just three in three matches so far. Not surprisingly they’ve only been the first to grab a five pointer once. That was in an 18-6 win over the Western Force in Round 2; Fullback Lachie Turner with the honours. The Waratahs are averaging two and a half tries per outing with five from their two matches; none of which though have been the opener. So will the Waratahs be first to touch down for the first time this year, can Queensland start strong at home or will we end up with a penalty shootout?
First Tryscorer Favourites
Wallabies Star Israel Folau is favorutie be the first tryscorer. The barnstorming back is the only man under double figures on Sportsbet’s market despite being yet to register a five pointer in this season. Rob Horne has scored 2 tries for the victors this year he’s the next best at $10. The man who’s already scored an opening try in 2015 is at $14.00, Lachie Turner is the shortest priced Reds player. At the other end of the market you’ll find Queensland Captain James Slipper at more than 50 bucks to be first over the line. Could the powerful prop pull a surprise?
If you fancy a first tryscorer flutter, then take advantage of Sportsbet’s fantastic First Tryscorer Offer. You’ll just get the one crack though with only your first bet on the market eligible for a refund if your selection scores any other time during the match.
