Any rugby fans or big sports followers know that the Rugby World Cup kicked off in Japan last Friday, 20 September. For anyone taking part in Rugby World Cup betting, it’s been a big weekend to get your initial wagers into the bookies, whether that’s online (our personal preference, we like the convenience) or in person.
In the first match on Friday, the host nation Japan took to the field and beat their rival Russia. On Saturday, there were a trio of matches. Australia triumphed over Fiji, then France secured a narrow victory over Argentina and New Zealand had a confident victory against South Africa.
Then on Sunday, three more matches took place. First up was Italy versus Namibia, which saw the European team take the top score. Then Ireland had a big win against Scotland. The final game of the weekend saw England beat Tonga decisively.
At the time of writing, Wales versus Georgia is taking place. We know anything can happen in the world of sport, but at a score of 22 to 0 at 36 minutes in, we’re guessing it’ll be Wales who take the top spot in this competition.
So if you want to get in on the Rugby World Cup betting action this week, there are plenty more opportunities for that. Whether you go for your home team or you place a wager based on odds, there’s plenty of choice out there with these matches.
