The break in Super Rugby does not mean that there is nothing to bet on this weekend, with three exciting International matches to keep you entertained, while there is also a few other things on the brew in the round ball variation.

The All Blacks get us underway this weekend, hosting Ireland in Auckland. This will be coach Steve Hansen’s first match in charge, and I think he might just get himself off to a winning start. Ireland did not look that great earlier in the year in the Six Nations, succumbing to a horrible defeat to England on the final weekend. The All Blacks will be too strong, and you can banker this game in your multiples.

New Zealand – 1/10
Ireland – 9/1

Probably the toughest game of the weekend to call, the Wallabies host the Six Nations champions Wales, and after the Aussies’ poor performance against Scotland in the week, one gets the feeling that the Welsh will think they have a chance. The Wallabies struggled on Tuesday, but I cannot see the Wallabies losing two in a row to Northern Hemisphere opposition.

Australia – 5/10
Wales – 18/10

The big one for the weekend is the Springboks hosting the English in Durban, a new era under coach Heyneke Meyer getting under way. I am of the opinion that the Boks will be too strong for the English, and even though they have had less time to prepare as a team for this match, the Boks will have too much in the tank, and win this match comfortably in the end.

South Africa – 1/3
England – 3/1
