Despite Tonga being 57 point underdogs, New Zealand far from blew the opposition away and as such also trim likely opponents South Africa from 9′s to 8/1 and France to 12/1.Ladbrokes refunded all stakes on first try-scorer favourite Richard Kahui after he grabbed the second try of the game in a cashback offer that is in operation throughout the entire tournament.
“Turnover for the match was decent and thankfully punters were of the opinion the All Blacks would dominate the game. We’ve just nudged them out and have trimmed the market principals who may be less daunted at the prospect of facing them later on” said Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes.
He also told us: “Once again we’ve given a decent sum back to punters after favourite Kahui grabbed the second of the match. The concession will be in place during the entire tournament and if today is anything to go by could prove costly.”
