Bookies tip Boks to top Pool D
Peter de Villiers
Cape Town – Whilst Peter de Villiers’ men prepare for their opening Rugby World Cup match against Wales on Sunday, the Springboks are being backed by South African betting site Bet.co.za
to beat Warren Gatland’s men and ultimately progress to the quarterfinals of the Rugby World Cup as the top team from Pool D.
South Africa’s possible semi-final opponents, New Zealand are the clear favourites to top Pool A, ahead of their rivals France, whilst in Pool C, Australia are odds on favourites to pip Ireland to the top position.
It's in Pool B however that things might get interesting.
With this group being dubbed the so-called 'group of death', England are favourites to top the pool, but both Argentina and Scotland will fancy their chances against Martin Johnson's men, especially early on the tournament, so at 4.5/1 and 5/1 respectively, it's definitely worth a few bucks.Pool A winner:
