Match Betting

Bet on your selection to win the match. There will be a draw option but this rarely happens in Rugby Union. Make sure you check out all the latest team news and form before placing your bet so you can make an informed decision that will hopefully win.

Handicap Betting

Handicap betting on Rugby Union is a popular alternative to just simple match betting. The bookmaker will put up a price based on a handicap line, giving one of the teams a handicap, minus points depending on how much better they think they are than the opposition. The idea being that with the handicap the odds are much more even.

Tryscorer Bets

You can bet on a player to score a try in the match, whether it's first, last or anytime. This is a popular side bet to have, especially if you are watching the match in question.

Rugby Union Betting Live In-Running

All of the bets above are featured by the bookmakers on the Betting Directory to back live in-running, with the odds changing according to what is happening in the match. Another popular bet in-running is the method of the next points scored, whether it'll be a try, penalty or drop goal.
