Mitre 10 Cup

Discussion in 'Rugby Union Discussion' started by Rego, Aug 18, 2016.

  1. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Starts tonight with North Harbour v Counties.

    Expecting nothing more than Welly to promote, no excuses not to, our squad is immense.

    I think I'm going to do a $30 bet challenge for it - start with $30 and see how much I can turn it into by the end. Can get some really good value in odds if you keep up with the action, quite often things are over/ under valued. Can be a bit harder at the start of the season with lots of new players but can also be the best profiting time.

    Anyway discuss the Comp etc.

    Whats with the change of sponser?
  4. Rego RS Hutchinson

    ITM decided not to renew

    So for tonight:

    Counties to win - $5 @ $1.90

    I hear North Harbour have been the goods in pre season which probably explains this 50/50 game in terms of the odds, they definitely have some good backs in there this year but then so do Counties and I reckon Counties forward pack just outclasses Harbour's so have gone for Counties to win.

    First impressions of the new breakdown laws: I'm liking them, has enabled some really good running rugby already.

    Was about to say if Harbour went onto lose there, it'd be back to typical Harbour ways. Not so sure about that Harbour try but a very good first game. I managed to cover my bet - Counties +9.5 $15 @1.33 so broke even for the first game. If Harbour continue to play like that, they very well could be in play off contention.

    Off to the Toll Stadium with the kids tonight to see Northland v Manawatu.

  9. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Good ol' Manawatu, like making things hard on themselves.

    Great game of rugby actually.
  11. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Successfully tipped all games except that Counties one (wasn't any upsets) - made for a good betting weekend.
  12. Fiery GR Smith

    Thought Waikato would beat Tasman :down:
  13. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Nah, they did a lot better than I thought they would though.
  14. Fiery GR Smith

    It was a truly awful game of rugby anyway. In stark contrast to the Taniwha v Turbos game.

    Otago v Welly tonight, should be a fast paced game. Some mass value in the odds (Welly paying $1.80) - think bookies think Welly are shitter than they actually are since they're 2nd div. Same thing happened with the HB v Welly game last week ($1.90 odds each way) made a nice profit from that one too.

    I have my Turbos membership again this year, so will be at all their home games (will be there tomorrow night) obviously I support Welly but rugby's rugby and just wanna see good games really.

    My tips for the round:

    Waikato (Harbour could fight Waikato quite hard in this one if they play like they did last week)
    Taranaki (this will be close)

    Some really tough games to call already.

    Was gonna say it last week but didn't want it to be a one off but what this game has symbolised is an inequality with the new breakdown laws. These new laws have been in effect all club season for some regions but not others. Basically the teams that know these laws in and out are just pounding these other teams that haven't been exposed as a result. We saw it last week when Canterbury absolutely smashed Auckland and we're seeing it again tonight. I'm not saying Wellington was necessarily good tonight (they were a lot better in the 2nd half notably) but these new breakdown laws fucked them in the first. We were in Otago's 22 many times in the first, close to scoring a try and bang new breakdown laws catch them off guard and it's a penalty and therefore a turnover - just no chance.

    Until these teams grasp these new laws, the players that have been using them all season will shit over the others and they don't even have to do anything in most cases, as we're seeing the team in possession get penalised. I was positive at first but I'm seeing these new laws as a shit buzz on the comp, it's just been a penalty fest.

    Another 6/7 based on tips - 12/14 so far. Easy money so far. Balance is up just past $200 now.
  18. Rego RS Hutchinson

    This week I'll say:

    Hawkes Bay
  19. Rego RS Hutchinson

    HB have been hopeless so far this season for the squad they have.
  20. Rego RS Hutchinson

    7/8 -----> 19/22 for the season so far.
