    Not an insightful bet mate. I back most league games, NRL included, for the draw. I've backed every World Cup game and it's paid off. But could have easily seen me a couple of hundred down by the end of the tournament.

    It's a bit like how Fantasy adds that extra interest, well backing the draw adds extra interest on top of that.

    Those fingers look awfully familiar. You don't have a spare Sizzler receipt laying around by any chance?

    Shitposting

    Seriously nice win there though. I recall you also bet on the draw throughout finals over the years.

    This weeks RLWC specials.

    Australia on the line over Samoa. Islanders generally don't like doing the hard work and being their last game, once they see there is no return they will lay down and it will be a white wash.

    Lebanon on the line over Tonga. Fittler has this side well drilled and full of pride, plus Tonga played their grand final last week and they need a better coach than they have to get them back up for this week.
    If you're ahead from the Aussie game, throw a half bet on Lebanon for the win. There's worse bets out there.

    I'll take that. The line bets got up and if you invested your Aussie winnings on the Lebanon win, when a 15:1 shot gets beaten by 2 there was worst bets out there.

    Was that possibly the worst Kiwi's performance ever? That first half was disgraceful.

    Good on Fiji, they played well and deserved to win, but to be honest they weren't great. The kiwis were simply terrible.

    Yeah, Fiji haven't been impressive at all. Even the USA would have given the Kiwi's a shake today.

    Just goes to show how deep the ethics problem is. SJ may rack up the fantasy points but it's only because every other cunt is on the bongs except Mannering. Most over rated player ever.

    Saw someone else on another page got $27 for the Fiji/PNG double. Who was your first leg?

    The co-ordinated reaction (Blair, Johnson, and Kidwell) to blame the NZ fans i.e. "youz got what you wanted", shawn Johnson yesterday is the bit that's even more mind blowing.

    The idiocy is just out of this world. How on earth could they think that is the best response given the on-field performance. Not only is it dumb, but its highly unproductive for the team moving forward.

    I am absolutely gobsmacked at the whole post match reaction from the Kiwis to be honest. IMO they are all complete idiots with not even half a brain between them.

    I heard a stat that all up Fiji have only scored 10 points in internationals against Australia. So I went looking and found that it's true.

    Year Date Team Score Opposition
    1995 Oct 14th Australia W 66 -  0
    2000 Nov 1st Australia W 66 -  8
    2008 Nov 16th Australia W 52 -  0
    2013 Nov 2nd Australia W 34 -  2
    2013 Nov 23rd Australia W 64 -  0

    Then I find an exotic on Crownbet paying $7 for any team to score less than 6.5 points, but it's a tri bet. What's that ?

    Here's my bet



    This is the Crownbet link (under main markets)

    Scrap that.

    It would be the winning margin mate. Hence the odds. Not likely.

    Thanks, now that I look at the odds, that makes sense. 40% loss is better than 100%. Early cash out it is.
