Wallabies Still Second in Rugby World Cup Odds

Australia at attractive RWC 2011 odds after shock loss to Ireland in group stage.

The Wallabies might have already suffered a shock loss in the group stages to Ireland, but our boys remain well and truly the second favourite in sports betting odds, behind only New Zealand.

Get behind the boys

With one game to go in the group stage, 888 Sport is offering tempting 8/1 odds on Australia to win the World Cup. This puts the Wallabies behind only arch-rivals and tournaments hosts New Zealand, 8/15, and ahead of South Africa and England, 9/1, and France, 12/1.

Unless Ireland loses to Italy on the weekend, Australia looks set to play South Africa in the quarters and then New Zealand in the semis. The odds of a southern hemisphere team winning RWC 2011 are 1/5. The northern hemisphere is 7/2.

Free bet back offer

To celebrate the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, 888sport is offering you an exclusive bet back offer.

Place a single bet of at least $5 on either first or last try scorer in any match, and if the first try in the match is scored by a number 8 then 888sport will match your original stake on all losing bets, crediting you with a free bet up of $50.
