Planes, Trains and a bit of Rugby!
This week has been a bit of a ‘mare. Not on the tipping front as I came right with most of my bets, but rather on the travelling front. I’ve spent more time in Dubai airport than most of the workers there. The worst thing about being stuck in an airport, especially one in the middle of an oil-rich country – is the absurd mark up on crap beer. I mean, it literally cost me 150 Rand for a bottle of Heineken and a 250 Ml thing of water. At prices like that, I’m considering packing in my writing gig and going and building an airport in the Karroo. There won’t be much traffic but all I need is three or four thirsty customers and I’ll be in the money.
Anyway, it’s quarter-finals time in the Super Rugby sphere and here are my tips for the games.
Kieran Read – Anytime Try Scorer v Sharks
Waratahs Win v Chiefs
Lions v Jaguares – Over 52.5 Points
