On Friday, September 9 this year, the 2011 Rugby World Cup kicks off in
Auckland, New Zealand, which means rugby union fans from all over the globe will
tune in to watch game 1 of the world’s premier rugby competition.

And due to the prevalence of safe, secure and user-friendly online sportsbooks,
it is expected that more rugby fans than ever before will bet on their favorite
teams to win the Webb Ellis Cup and be crowned the new rugby world champions.

The 2011 Rugby World Cup will see 20 of the world’s best national rugby sides
compete in a group and knock-out format. The teams are split into four pools,
A,B,C and D. In the group stage, they play every other team in their group.

2011 Rugby World Cup pools:

Pool A Pool B Pool C Pool D
Canada Argentina Australia Fiji
France England Ireland Namibia
Japan Georgia Italy Samoa
New Zealand Romania Russia South Africa
Tonga Scotland United States Wales

A point system based on victories and scorelines will determine the winner and
runner-up of each pool, who will progress to the knock-out stage of the
competition consisting of four quarter final matches, two semi-final matches and
the final.

In terms of 2011 Rugby World Cup betting, most land and online
sportsbooks are already offering a wide variety of bet types, including
ever-popular outrights, which is where fans can bet on the team they believe
will win the World Cup.

For instance, leading online sportsbook Paddy Power has published its 2011 Rugby
World Cup outrights which has the home team (the All Blacks) as the 4/7
favorites, then Australia at 10/3, then defending champions South Africa at 8/1.

In game 1 of the 2011 Rugby World Cup, the All Blacks face Tonga at Eden Park,
and Paddy Power has laid the All Blacks as the overwhelming 1/900 betting
favourites to win the match, and Tongo 40/1 odds to pull off an upset victory.
