I think he could play against them, I'd imagine they'll go with O'Connor and Ioane on the wings. He is so versatile that he could be benched for the big games and play the smaller ones.

Maybe. With only 3 wingers in the squad he's likely to play there a bit. The other issue is Mitchell. I think he's played a bit of club rugby since his return but I doubt he can have done enough to get his starting spot back. But he could easily be starting come the knockout stages.

Oz were a minimum of 10/1 a year ago in most places.

Leinster +3 are Dragons +12 are my bets in the Celtic Magners Rabo Direct Pro12 for the weekend.

How soon before we can just call it the Pro12?

I hope he is. I think Mitchell is a cracking player, often under rated but he's like Keith Earls with a brain.

Am I missing something (is he injured) or are they actually crazy odds?
those odds are mad, i backed him last month for same bet he and was 50/1 ??
have heard nothing about him being injured

Ireland to reach the final @9/1

Will have a few more before next Friday, wouldn't be a world cup without a top scorer and tryscorer bet!

very like me i have a fairly large amount on soma to reach q/fs at 7/1 , was very upset to see wales playing well recently and SA playing crap.

Also went for ireland 25/1 frogs 16/1 and aussies at 5/1

only a week to go

I threw a fiver each way on it @ 500/1. If he's injured so be it but couldn't refuse those odds!

On PP so odds could be better elsewhere.


Name the 8 quarter finalists.

New Zealand, France, England, Argentina, Australia, Ireland, South Africa & Wales @ 13/8


Name the quarter finals.

Australia vs Wales, England vs France, South Africa vs Ireland, & New Zealand vs Argentina @ 9/2


Be very surprised the quarters looked any different than that.

Leinster to win - evens. 27-3 FT
Leinster to win by more than 8 @ 11/4
Isa Nacewa a try @ 16/5
Fionn Carr a try @ 23/10

God loves a tryer!

Now what odds on finding a pub that will be showing the Leinster game instead of 'dirt' football as my local barman refers to it.
Plus I had to abandon my usual local for the 'dirt' football just before half time and the #2 pub only had BBC NI - Ulster vs Glasgow - which was obviously a damn sight more exciting than the Leinster debacle. Only €4 down and there's tomorrow to come.
