The 2015 Rugby Championship is underway (which is the old Tri Nations contest) and New Zealand are expected to continue their dominance in the tournament after winning it for the last three seasons running.
The All Blacks are heavy 4/6 favourites at bookmaker Bet365 to walk away with the Championship title, with South Africa following at 9/4, Australia at 9/2 and Argentina as the usual underdogs at a whopping 150/1. The All Blacks crushed Argentina in their opening match of the tournament, running off five tries in the match.
They will only get better as the tournament progresses as well which is a scary thought and some dominant performances here will only see them harden as favourites to win the World Cup in England later in the year (11/8).
It is worth following the Rugby Championship live in-play throughout the tournament, so you can pounce on the highly value try scoring markets which are available. Bet365 offer superb live in-play betting for rugby, rolling out a host of new markets after kick off!
Can the Wallabies or the Springboks get close to the All Blacks who have lost just one of their last 18 Rugby Championship matches (winning 16)?
