Wallabies William Hill Offer Persuading Patriotic Punters to back the Aussie Underdogs
October 28, 2015
After 46 games and nearly and a month half of thrilling rugby only two nations are left to fight for the Web Ellis Cup. The All Blacks or the Wallabies will be world Champions for a record third time but who will it be? Can the Kiwis become the first side to defend their title or will Australia win the World Cup for first time since 1999. One thing’s for sure, the battle at Twickenham is a mouth-watering prospect.
William Hill’s Odds and Offer
Australia are underdogs but William Hill have an offer for those patriotic punters willing to wager on the Wallabies. Back the Aussies to beat New Zealand on William Hill’s head to head market and if they lose by under 8 points, you’ll get your money back up to $50. Only your first head to head wager on Australia qualifies for a refund but if they come up short by a converted try or less, your cash will be returned to your account. New Zealand are firm favourites to win the final; though at just over $1.40 they’re now paying their highest head to head price all tournament. Australia are outsiders, at around $3 to cause an upset.
Head to Head at World Cups and Ahead of this World Cup
Perhaps surprisingly this will be the first time the two teams have met in a rugby World Cup Final. Australia hold a 2-1 advantage in World Cup fixtures though the All Blacks won their most recent clash at the tournament in the 2011 semi final. New Zealand also won the last battle between the two great rivals retaining the Bledisloe Cup with a comprehensive 41-13 victory at Eden Park in August. But Australia also boast a win over their opposition this year having beaten the number one ranked team in the world 27-19 on their way to winning the Rugby Championships.
The Wallabies are aiming to remain the only nation unbeaten in World Cup matches in the United Kingdom, a run that stretches back to 1991. New Zealand though are on their own streak, having won their last 13 world Cup games. (That number though is unlucky for some). Twickenham’s been Australia’s second home at this World Cup with the Wallabies winning four matches at the home of rugby already. Another triumph would be the highest of fives!
