I want to keep opposing England because I feel Eddie Jones' tenure has reached the point of no return....not sure about the Boks though. The handicap of -3 doesn't exactly get me excited. Will look forward to the options put out here in the coming week....there must be some value out there...

Liking most of the preview picks, in particular Arg -3.5.
Wales have picked a very green front 5, including Dillon Lewis at tighthead. He's not able to hold down a spot at Cardiff Blues, so can see the Welsh pack getting a bit of a roasting. Argentina not the place to blood front 5 forwards if you have serious aspirations of winning the test match.
There is some experience on the bench however.

Happy to oppose England, they were just awful in their last 3 6N games, I also think Eddie is doomed. Will wait for teams however.

Was pretty strong on the Irish, so took some evens to win a few days ago. Partly on the basis they'd field their strongest line-up dominated by Leinster players.
Apparently however Schmidt looking to rest a number of key players, including Jonny Sexpest, so awaiting teams for this one too before getting any more involved.

French team actually looks pretty decent, on paper, but can only see a comfortable NZ win.
Not sure I'll have a bet on this one however.

The French team looks Ok-ish but the bench is extremely weak – especially the 9/10 combination. Baille is the player I m looking forward to see.
On the starting line, Priso will be the player to watch but I m really worried about Atonio and hope Chat will have learn how to throw a line-out.
Second row alright but question mark on Meastri despite doing one of his best season for a while
3rd row is alright but a bit scared for Sanconnie with his lack of experience at this level.
Parra is a very scrum half but Belleau is a bit of a coin flip – could be very good or could play like a 10 years old boy – but Plisson has a backup is no better :( - this is and has been the problem of the French rugby for almost a decade now.
On the back row, wingers are good, Bastareaud has grown up but not sure about Doumayrou and Medard.
There are too many players missing once again after a long season (some injured, some rested, some asked to stay in France) and this will be very hard. I could see France trying their best for 40 min and then… well we all know what will happen :D
Highest Scoring Half – second half seems like a decent bet and the Abs caps at HT could be good as well. However, France to score first @ 3.50 is a bit too high I reckon.

I am also taking Argentina on the board @ 1.61 and the -3 @1.91

Am I the only person who thinks that South Africa won't beat England?

The Springbok team hasn't been announced yet but it looks like it'll be a team without any existing combinations. Plus untested wings who will probably be peppered with high balls. If the team is picked that I think will be picked then I just see so many vulnerabilities that can be exploited.

Ellis Park may be a factor but it doesn't look like a lot of highveld players will be picked.

England may have had a poor Six Nations and they have injury problems but they still have a more settled look to them.

I'll keep an eye out on the team announcements but for now I'm in the England camp.

I prefer the SH sides this time of year - mid season, quite fresh, whereas NH players crying out for a break.

Boks win @ 8/10 my main bet tomorrow.

Also like Aussies 21/20 outright.

Will add double 27/10.

Japan -2.5 @ 15/20 to start the morning.

Josephs picked 13 of the Sunwolves which have been in good touch at home.

I'm not going to over complicate things....The performances of late of the Sunwolves and the Jaguares are going to replicate themselves into the national sides. I just like them both. Japan and Argentina.

I think the French will run the ABS a lot closer than the 24.5 point line would suggest. I don't think this will be an open running game and looking at the players selected by the ABS and the comments made by Hansen tempering expectations they do not expect it either. I see a tough tight forward orientated traditional test match. Case and point would be the omission of a specialist wing in Naholo whose skill set probably wont be optimal in this sort of game.

The French are used to a grind and that's what they will turn this game into. If it was rain on the cards here in Auckland I would be even more confident but looks like clear night. But that may play into the hands of anybody playing unders getting a better line.

I've gone +24.5 and Abs by 11-20 @ $4. I'm tempted by the 1-12 but I feel the game will be tight all the way with the ABS scoring in the final minutes making the score look a little more comfortable than it was. ABs by 16

Under 56.5 points in ABs vs France

And Time of first penalty before 22min30. France will certainly take an early shot if they get the chance and ABs may even too.

Also think abs will hit top gear in second half so will be looking at half time minus

Following on the penalty - Parra is a very good kicker and adding for fun a penalty scored before 10" @ 3.50

How can this be a yellow card for the french second row (not sure where the ref saw a high tackle) while there is just a simple penalty for the double high tackle - ABs don't need to have the ref in their pocket on top of the quality game they re playing... makes me sick....

Yeah that yellow was not good, ref obviously thought he saw more than he did but should've gone upstairs

Was so close on the unders and ALB try scorer, was a good result but could've been much better

Can't trust the Aussies, Ireland win @1.90

Australia time of first penalty before 22mins

Under 50.5

Good win by the Aussies, they were well up for it.

Now have the double onto Boks and Boks outright. Going to add:

1st tryscorer Pollard 33/1 ew. Feels big, Faf tends to make space for his 10's.

Man of Match Faf de Klerk 16/1

Last week I cashed in opposing a poor team particularly the inclusion of Chilliboy at hooker.

Play it again Sam. I dont like the look of this SA team. Rookie wingers, exposed at Super Rugby level both extremely suspect under the high ball and defensively. Like that 9/10 combo/. Like the loosies. Locks so so. Front row serious questions to be answered. Bongi Mbonambi? A level above Chilli and in my opinion these Boks are going to be hit hard in the opening forty.

Have taken 28/10 England -4.5 First half because of this. I cant see anything but a Pom victory.

If there are odds offered, I'm interested

This is one unbelievable game. After England scored 3 quick tries I made a big bet that they will score more than 5. Now I just don't know anymore.

Great stuff by the Bokke to come back like that. I expected England to walk all over them.

It did arrive mackem, watched him get the award and interview after game. :) Although bookie still showing bet as open but am sure will be settled soon.

Been a very good day and no real feel for final game, but for an interest, old war-dog Creevy to bundle over for 1st try @ 16/1.
