South Africa v British and Irish Lions

This sports betting tip was written by Sandy on June 20th, 2009 at 11:14


Its judgement day for the Lions as they real stuff begins with the 1st match against the mighty South Africa. In the past they would be seen as probably the weakest of the 3 nations down under but that has been the case in recent years with plenty of well deserved wins in the 3 nations tournaments against the Aussies and Nz.

The Lions have been superb at times in the warm up games and scored some fantastic trys. Ok there has also been some bit part performances where they really didnt get going. But i am going to put that down to the amount of changes to the side and the fact its impossible to hit top form in every game when one eye is always looking forward to the big test, which comes today.

I have a feeling we are going to see a famous win for the British and Irish lads. South Africa are a class side but there has been a fair few weeks break since the super 12 finished over there, while the Lions have been ticking over nicely in the warm ups.

Ofcourse the heat and humidity is a problem but they have had plenty of time to get ready for that. There will as always be fantastic backing from the travelling support which should give them a big lift and if the Lions start this well i think they can win. Odrisscol is on fire at the moment and we know Ian McGheenen is one of the most experienced and respected coaches in world rugby, he will get the tactics spot on.

It is sure to be very tight and possibly quite low scoring but with a massive 8 point start the Lions have to be the bet.
