As we head towards Super Rugby 2019 we take in the latest betting in the outright markets, to win the tournament and each of the conferences.
The first round of fixtures in Super Rugby 2019 gets underway on Friday 15th February. The Crusaders will begin their defence of the title they won last year away at the Blues on Saturday 16th whilst the South African interest sees the Sharks travel to meet the Sunwolves, the first derby of the season will be contested between the Bulls and the Stormers and the Lions begin overseas at Jaguares.
The Saders won 14 and lost 2 of their matches in the round robin last season to finish well clear and they went on to progress through the play offs before beating the Lions in the final.
We will of course be providing our trademark betting previews for every match of the tournament with weather forecasts, team line ups, officials, form and head to head history.
Watch out for our weekly rugby betting show “The Handicap” which is streamed live on our youtube channel. You can subscribe to the channel for free so you can receive notifications of when each show is about to go on air and a recording is available on Goodforthegme immediately afterwards.
Remember you can also have your own say on our discussion forum where a group of the sharpest rugby punting brains congregate to add their thoughts on the outrights and each round of matches as soon as the markets are available.
Let’s move on to the outright betting.

Conference Betting (last update 10th February 09:00, prices from GGGaimng)
The Waratahs fared the best of the Australian sides in 2018 with a round robin record of 9 wins, 1 draw and 6 defeats. The Tahs were Australia’s only representatives in the play offs and they made it to the semi finals where they lost to the Lions in Joburg. The Rebels were second best in Australia running out of steam after a very promising start to finish 8 points adrift of the Tahs. The Brumbies came in third 10 points off top spot and the Reds filled fourth poition with the Sunwolves cut adrift after winning just 3 matches.
New Zealand Conference:
The Crusaders finished 12 points clear of the Hurricanes in the NZ Conference last season and the Chiefs were third a further 2 points in arrears. The Highlanders points tally in finishing fourth in this division was still plenty to earn a play off place and the Blues finished bottom in NZ with just 4 wins from 16 matches.
South African Conference:
In 2018 the Lions topped the SA Conference with 46 points and a record of 9 wins and 7 defeats. They finished 8 points clear of Jaguares and 10 in front of the Sharks whilst the Stormers and the Bulls were further back with both sides earning 29 log points. The Sharks did squeeze into the play offs before falling at the first hurdle in Christchurch.
