    Top Try Scorer Odds

    From Oddschecker.

    5/1 - Joe Rokocoko
    6/1 - Sitivini Sivivatu
    9/1 - Doug Howlett
    16/1 - Brian Habana
    25/1 - Mils Muliaina
    33/1 - Isaia Toeava, Christophe Dominici, Luke McAllister, Leon MacDonald
    40/1 - Aurelien Rougerie, Vincent Clerc, Cedric Heymans, Lote Tuqiri

    Others:

    66/1 - Stirling Mortlock
    80/1 - Dan Carter, Brian O'Driscoll, Jason Robinson, Chris Latham
    100/1 - Shane Williams, Jean De Villiers
    125/1 - Josh Lewsey, Mark Cueto, Percy Montgomery, Matt Giteau
    150/1 - Gareth Thomas
    200/1 - Julian Huxley, Francois Steyn
    300/1 - Chris Paterson


    7 Kiwis quoted in the first 9, which is no surprised given they're nailed on for 7 games at least, but with the minnows it is a bit of a crap shoot. Josh Lewsey ran in 5 tries v Uruguay last time, as did Latham v Namibia, so it only takes one performance like that to put yourself in contention. If you fancy England to jam the semis there's some decent value on our back 3 who could fill their boots v USA & Tonga.

    Surprised to see Dan Carter so low, he'll score a fair few tries.

    A good bet to win would be Australia, we always give a very good account of ourselves in any sport.

    Habana definitely worth a punt with those odds on try scorer. He looked really good against Samoa today. A tenner on him and you could come away with 160, not bad.

    The best available odds for the winner courtesy of oddschecker:

    http://www.oddschecker.com/rugby-uni...007/win-market

    New Zealand: 1/2
    France: 9/1
    South Africa: 10/1
    Ireland: 16/1
    Australia: 20/1
    England: 39/1
    Wales: 94/1
    Argentina: 99/1
    Scotland: 679/1
    Samoa, Fiji, Italy: 1000/1
    Namibia, Romania, Georgia, Portugal, Tonga, Japan, Canada, USA: 5000/1


    We won't win it, but we're clearly the value bet there. Some bookies are paying 1/3 odds on a final appearance, which is distinctly within our capabilities. NZ practically unbackable, Ireland are terrible value with their group but France, Oz or SA all decent value for each-way punts.
    Oh how I wish I'd had the courage of my convictions.
