Rugby World Cup Predictions & Betting Tips

The Rugby World Cup is the pinnacle of the game of rugby. All of the best nations in the world look to lift the trophy at the end of the tournament, but few have ever come through on this dream. 

The southern-hemisphere sides have dominated the tournament since its inception, with New Zealand, South Africa and Australia the major players. England remain the only side from the northern-hemisphere to win the competition, and they came close to repeating that trick in 2019, only to be outclassed by South Africa in the final.

In 2023, South Africa were able to defend their crown as they secured the glory by downing New Zealand and lifting the trophy again in France. 

Across the tournament, our team of expert tipsters will be covering every single match with tips and predictions. Keep an eye out on for the best Rugby World Cup betting tips.
