Introduction to The World Cup
If you’re a fan of the game with the odd-shaped ball, then no doubt you’re eagerly counting down the days to the 2019 Rugby World Cup. The first one to be held on the Asian continent, the World Cup in Japan is promising to be one of the most tightly contested.
The All Blacks are a team that are always hard to beat, and the bookies certainly fancy their chances. However, could there be another team that walks away with the trophy? Here’s Yesbets’ rugby world cup tips for this year’s tournament.
Ireland are looking like a good value bet right now as bookies are taking into account the fact that they’ve never advanced past a quarter final in the World Cup. Nevertheless, the team in green could be worth a punt as recently they’ve been ripping up the record book with wins over New Zealand.
Having a Kiwi coach in Schmidt will help Ireland, as will Johnny Sexton, World Rugby Player of the Year. Strength in depth is another thing Ireland can boast about, helping to protect them against decimation by injuries.
English coach Eddie Jones has been focussing on the World Cup since his appointment, a fact he made clear during his first press conference back in 2015. The Six Nations was a complete disaster for England but the Australian has refused to allow this setback to dominate preparation.
Since their embarrassing collapse against Scotland, England notched up a win against the Barbarians in June 2019, putting them back on track.
Jones’ record is impressive but Japan 2019 is going to be an uphill struggle with an unfavourable draw. England are in with Argentina and France, two team who perform well in major tournaments. If they manage to make it through, potential opponents en route to the final include New Zealand, Australia and Ireland.
The Springboks have a phenomenal record in the World Cup, reaching at least the quarter-finals every time since they joined in 1995. They’ve also finished in third place twice and won the whole tournament twice too so they’re serious contenders to rival the All Blacks.
They’ve got a proven track record in shaking off defeats and bouncing quickly back, a mental toughness that many say England lack. Their players include flyhalf Handré Pollard, Junior World Championship 2014 victor, and Aphiwe Dyantyi the 2018 World Breakthrough Player of the Year. Meeting New Zealand in the group stages means they won’t have to face them again until the final, if they manage to go all the way. Bet against South Africa at your peril!
After emerging as the victors for the 2019 Six Nations, Wales have risen to third in the world rankings and stand as serious contenders for the World Cup. The experienced Justin Gatland remains at the helm, a fact which will boost the Dragons’ chances further.
Since being beaten by New Zealand in 2011, Wales are out for revenge and fans are confident that they’re going to do well. However, they’ve got a tricky path with potentially England and New Zealand or South Africa ahead of them before what would be their first ever final.
