    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.
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    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.
