Rugby World Cup 2019 Top Scorer Tips & Preview


History proves that when financing in the best tryscorer marketplace, it is worth it to follow full-backs and New Zealand wingers. The All Blacks have provided the top tryscorer on five events (Craig Green/John Kirwan 1987, Jonah Lomu 1995 & 1999, Doug Howlett/Mils Muliaina 2003 along with Julian Savea in 2015).
It is a mark of their depth and talent from the New Zealand back three that a player having less than a couple of evaluation begins heads the market, that guy is Sevu Reece. The 22-year-old exploded on the scene in his debut season, scoring 15 tries (a league high) as the Crusaders secured yet another Super Rugby title.
Reece scored his first All Blacks try in Australia’s 36-0 demolition and forced his way to the squad of Steve Hansen. With question marks enclosing starter Rieko Ioane, Reece seems set to get a good deal of game time where fixtures against Canada, Italy and Namibia provide chance to stand up the tries.
The inclusion of Reece from the squad feels like the Joe Rokocoko who burst onto the scene in 2003 and scored 6 tries. So although it isn’t generally my solution to go for a favorite in this market, Reece seems too obvious to miss.
My second selection in the top tryscorer marketplace is Australia’s Marika Koroibete, just another winger. Codes were switched by the former rugby league star and might be set for a breakout tournament. Now while his tally of 5 international tries in 18 looks may not jump off the page, but that may have been a product of the team around him.
Australia seem to have seen a balance that is better in their own backline with James O’Connor in the centers providing guile alongside the battering ram Samu Kerevi’s return. Using Kurtley Beale set to satisfy the boots of Israel Folau Koroibete ought to be given plenty of opportunities to improve his international tally.
Insert to his matches against Uruguay, Georgia and Fiji in the groups must be open, a loads attempts — at 66/1 he is worth chancing.
After strong performances from the warm-up games and a single man who’s critical to their own fantasies is Manu Tuilagi england visit Japan filled with confidence.
The ball center is finally putting a series of games having featured at 2019 in every England fixture. He induced havoc against Ireland at Twickenham a few weeks ago a campaign as England cruised to a 57-15 success.
Crucially that functionality came with Tuilagi lining up at outside centre (he performed at inside center throughout the Seven Nations) — playing in that excess space actually predominate the 28-year-olds skills where he can attack the external channels and does not always face a few man tackles.
With fitness doubts encompassing Henry Slade and Jonathan Joseph, Tuilagi is sure to play 13 alongside Owen Farrell and George Ford — together with all the talent around him that the Leicester man can definitely shine at the World Cup and looks a excellent each-way wager to lead the try scoring charts to his nation.
South African fly-half Handre Pollard enjoyed a stunning World Cup debut in 2015 scoring 93 points (finishing second to Nicolas Sanchez in scoring charts) as the Boks asserted third place. Even the 25-year-old is a goal kicker that is metronomic but supplies a danger scoring 6 tries in 41 games.
With the exception of New Zealand that the Boks face a straightforward group point where points should flow against Namibia and should you fancy them to move deeply into the tournament as I do, then Pollard is going to be the guy kicking the conversions and penalties.
From the market fundamentals he looks the most solid in my own eyes and awarded his evaluation document, his price of 5/1 won’t survive long.
