Rugby Tips - Week Three Review

Week 3 Review


A hugely profitable week for us again and another 19 Points of profit banked taking our 3 weekly total to +48.56 Points and a massive £485.60 for followers betting £10 a point. As you will see we were denied an extra 31 points in the cruellest of circumstances with Wasps conceding late to lose to 13 man Northampton, though I won’t complain at a weekly profit of 19 points and hopefully the ball will continue bouncing our way in future. Here’s a brief recap of the week’s fixtures.


Sale 48 - 10 Harlequins

Sale obliterated Harlequins on Friday night at the AJ Bell Stadium. Harlequins actually took the lead after 5 minutes with a breakaway try but from there on it was one way traffic. With the score at 24-10 to Sale at half time, the second half was even more one sided resulting in a final score of 48-10. This meant our half time full time bets were losers but our multis were in great shape for the weekend.

Leicester 31 - 18 Bristol

Leicester started like a house on fire leading 21-6 at the break as disciplinary problems for Bristol saw them reduced to 13 men briefly in the first half. Leicester only had 6 points before the game for a reason and their fragilities in defence were on full display after half time conceding 2 tries in 2 minutes and Bristol cutting the deficit to 21-18. A Leicester penalty steadied the ship before Jonny May went over in the corner to seal a much needed bonus point win for the Tigers.


Gloucester 29 - 15 Bath

An error strewn first half in which Bath were much more competent than Gloucester saw the visitors lead 9-7 at the break. This left us needing a Gloucester victory to keep all our multiple bets alive for maximum profit on the Sunday and also a 6/1 Bath half time Gloucester full time winner. Gloucester’s sluggishness continued in the second half and despite scoring a try to go ahead 12-7 they conceded 2 quick penalties to again trail 15-12. The introduction of forward Gerbrandt Grobler was influential in turning the game in Gloucester’s favour as he dived over from close range to give Gloucester a 19-15 lead. This was a lead which they never surrendered as they dominated late on for a 29-15 win which could have been much greater than the final score line.

London Irish 28 - 45 Exeter

Victories for Sale, Leicester and Gloucester left us needing what appeared the formality of table topping Exeter beating London Irish to win a large profit. The Chiefs didn’t disappoint and after a fairly even first 25 minutes on the scoreboard at least they put their foot down just before half time to go in 28-7 at the break and all but end the tie as a contest. The second half started with more of the same as Exeter added another try before disciplinary problems saw them reduced to 13 men and London Irish managed to get the margin down to only 14 points at 42-28. However Exeter showed their steel and Gareth Steenson added a penalty to make the score 45-28 and put the game out of reach of the rallying Irish at 45-28 leaving us heavily in profit for the week.

Wasps 31 - 35 Northampton

Exeter’s victory left us needing a Wasps win to turn our 5 fold into a winner and with us having a half time full time option on both sides I was hoping they would lead at the break thus as good as guaranteeing us another 15 points minimum. Despite leading 10-7 after 30 minutes, Wasps defence creaked just before half time and they entered the break trailing 14-10. This meant that should Wasps pull off the victory we would be in line for another 31 points of profit on the Northampton half time Wasps full time bet and the 5 fold being a winner. Things looked bleak when 2 Northampton tries stretched their lead to 28-10 but Wasps raced back with 2 tries of their own to trail 28-24. The game then appeared to have turned in our favour as Tom Collins was red carded for Northants for a tackle in the air of Jacob Umaga. From here Wasps pressure told as Cobus Reinach intentionally knocked down a try scoring pass and Northants were reduced to 13 men, with Wasps awarded a penalty try to lead 31-28. This left us needing Wasps to hang on for 7 minutes to see an absolutely monumental profit, however it wasn’t to be as Northants applied pressure despite their 2 man deficit and with 2 minutes left it told. Off the back of a 5 metre scrum the humongous winger Taqele Naiyaravoro dived over for the game winning try denying us mega profits in the most heart-breaking fashion.
