Kevin the Tipster - Australia vs Ireland, Wales vs Samoa

There's a big weekend of Rugby World Cup matches ahead, starting early tomorrow so rugby's answer to Paul the Octopus is back with his insightful predictions. He's had a pretty good run of form so far, so let's see how well he does this time around.

Tomorrow's action kicks off with Argentina up against Romania, and then South Africa vs Fiji, but it's the Australia vs Ireland game that caught Kevin the Tipster's attention. Last week he correctly predicted that England would beat Argentina, and South Africa would beat Wales.

Ireland will go into the game as 4/1 underdogs, while the Tri Nations champs, the Wallabies, are at 1/5, with a draw sitting at 25/1. Kevin the sheep clearly takes it all into account when choosing.

He also has a go at one of Sunday's matches, Wales vs Samoa, which you can see after the first vid. Feel free to leave your thoughts and predictions on all the matches as a comment below.

You can follow Kevin's tips and place some bets with RD partners Paddy Power now

Well, now we have concrete evidence. Sheep have limited rugby knowledge.

Can we re-open the NH v SH debate again today?

I suppose it's quite simple really, there is now a fair chance of an NH/SH final. Each hemisphere fighting its own kin. Unless Samoa starts wreaking havoc, which is a strong possibility, unless France actually plays to win against the ABs (which they now logically shouldn't), unless Scotland beat Argentina ... etc etc

of course, lets complain about the ref, the lack of tries etc....

I think the Aussies are potentially better of course, but it goes to show that when executed well the dogged possession and territory game will win out.

Ok, I am an Irish fan, I should admit though that the absence of Pocock, Ioane and Coopers brain did help us today...but hey, a win's a win!!! WHU HUUU!
