    Are Under 18s allowed on this thread?

    Congratulations James. My old man had a quaddie on yesterday, and missed out. Oh well.

    Bangladesh were 16-1 at the start of play, and Australia 100-1 on.

    And Stuart MacGill will have to cop it on the chin. He gave Bangas so little credit throughout the whole telecast. Bad luck son, fell at the first hurdle. Diplomacy.

    James you were quite lucky with Souths v.s. St George.

    Souths gave them a run for their money for the first 65 minutes or so

    My biggest recent coup was getting Man U for the English Prem @ 8/1 with Stan James. I stuck the bet on early in the season when they'd won something like 2 of their first 8 games.

    Now, I know they finished third, but the good people @ Stan James play one-fifth odds on a top three finish! So my £50 stake won me £80, plus the stake back of course!

    Just wish I'd had the testes to stick £500 on now!

    Poor you broncoman, always next week

    Yeah I know Blaze, switched off the TV after 65 minutes when Souths made is 10-12. Checked 20 minutes later and someone they'd won by 18 points! Goodness know's how!

    What do you guys reckon about the Confederation Cup game between Greece and Japan?

    Half Time/Full Time double for Draw/Greece is paying $4.50. A fiver on that would return $22.50

    I also think placing $5 on a 1-0 result would be worth it. It's going to be 1-0 or 2-0 if that first bet is correct.

    I dunno what odds you'd get, but 1-0 Greece sounds v attractive.

    The 1-0 on Greece is paying $8!! That's quite surprising to say the least!

    You did post AndyC but I deleted it. What Craig mentioned has been discussed before and it turned ugly fast so I choose to remove it.
