Cape Town - New Zealand, despite the injury to talisman flyhalf Dan Carter, are still favourites to win the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

With Carter out, several of the remaining quarter-finals will fancy causing a major upset over the tournament hosts, but bookies still have the All Blacks listed as 7/10 favourites to win the tournament, with Australia and South Africa the next best at 7/1.

England are at 9/1 to win the event, while Australia’s conquerors in the group stage, Ireland, look to be good value at 14/1 to lift the Webb Ellis Cup.

The unpredictable French are installed at 16/1 along with Wales, while Argentina are at a whopping 200/1, with the bookies not expecting them to cause a major upset over New Zealand in the quarter-finals.
