Wales v Tonga
Wales too to Filed a Weaker Team?
Wales v Tonga, an interesting one by all accounts. Like their English counterparts, Wales are set to field a weaker team. Wales have been known to stumble on the proverbial ‘Banana Peel’ with a well set handicap, or should I say expected handicap, I suspect Wales could come unstuck here.
Tier 1 v Tier 2
Wales are in interesting team, they are a Tier 1 team, but sometimes don’t play like one.
I like Tonga here. I honestly do not know any of the players, but at +17.5 I am interested.
Wales have played this Tonga team eight times before and only once beaten the 17pt start the Bookies give them. Also interestingly, you have to go back to 2001 for the last time Wales scored more than 25pts v Tonga.
I have to say, if Wales do not score more than 25pts this weekend, there is no chance they beat this minus.
My Call here is a conservative one, but I do believe it has the value
