The 2011 Four Nations continues this weekend as host nation England go head-to-head with Australia.
Having scored 42 points against Wales last weekend, England find themselves 16 point underdogs against the Australians and are 9/2 to win the match. Australia are 1/8 to win the match and, following their victory against New Zealand last weekend, are 2/7 to win the Four Nations.
spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com: “Our punters were all over England this time last week, but all the money for Steve McNamara’s men has dried up as they face the formidable force of the Aussies.”
Sam Tomkins scored four tries in England’s last match against Wales and while there are no punters backing him to do the same against tournament favourites, they are coming in for him to score anytime at 2/1. On the other side of the pitch, Billy Slater (Australia) has just won International Rugby League Player of the Year and he is 8/1 to score the first try of the match.
Wales’ task in the Four Nations does not get any easier as they come face-to-face with New Zealand. The Kiwis are 1/250 to win in 80 minutes, while the handicap gives Wales a 44 point head start at 10/11.
