It is four battles between northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere nations in the quarter finals of the Rugby World Cup 2015. It’s interesting how it has all panned out like that and there are some mouth-watering clashes to come, although it looks as if the southern hemisphere is most likely going to come out on top.
So what kind of challenge can the remaining northern hemisphere nations, namely Wales, Scotland, Ireland and France put up in their quarter final matches?
Wales will need to dig deep and battle through more selection problems to take on the rapidly improving South Africa, while the low-scoring France have drawn the short straw in having to face New Zealand.
Scotland face an uphill battle against the impressive Australia (although they Scots have won their last two against the Wallabies), while Ireland carry the highest hopes of the northern hemisphere sides as they take on Argentina in their quarter final battle.
If a northern hemisphere side scores first (try, penalty try, drop goal, or penalty) in their respective Rugby World Cup quarter final match, then Ladbrokes will refund losing First Tryscorer and Anytime Try scorer bets on that match up to £25 as a Free Bet..!
