February 25, 2015
The Super Rugby season has provided super entertainment so far and Sportsbet’s rugby refund will make round three’s all Australian affair between the Brumbies and Rebels really exciting! Place a first tryscorer bet on Saturday night’s match in Melbourne and get up to 100 bucks back if your selection scores a try that isn’t the opener. The special will keep you alive if your selection isn’t first across the line let’s just hope he gets there in the 80 minutes.
The Try Scorers So Far
Despite losing to the Warratahs 28-38 in round 2 the Rebels claimed a bonus point after scoring 4 tries in the encounter. Scott Higginbotham had the home crowd on its feet early grabbing the game’s opener in the 12th minute while Luke Burgess, Sefanaia Naivalu and Lopeti Timani, also crossed for what turned out to be consolations. The latter scored the first try of the season when the Rebels upset the Crusaders in New Zealand in the first game of the year. Nic Stirzaker also got a 5 pointer as Melbourne won on foreign soil for the first time in their history.
Six tries in two games isn’t a bad effort by the Rebels, though the Brumbies managed that number in their opening match, routing the Reds 47-3. The Brumbies backs benefited. Robbie Coleman kicked proceedings off in Canberra while wingers Joseph Tomane and James Dargaville also touched down. Outside centre Tevita Kuridrani was another to get over the white line, so did scrumhalf Nic White and flyhalf Matt Toomua. The Brumbies only managed one try in their last match. Powerhouse Ita Vaea became the club’s seventh individual tryscorer of the season in a heart breaking loss to the Chiefs.
The Brumbies head into this weekend as Australia’s top team having collected a win and two bonus points so far; while the Rebels are second in the Australian Division just a point behind. The Brumbies were seconds away from beating the Chiefs in New Zealand in round 2 before the hosts kicked a penalty goal on the full time siren to snatch a dramatic 19-17 victory. So can the visitors win away for the first time this season or will the Rebels register a home success to go with their triumph across the ditch.
