About Rugby League

There are two types of mainstream rugby competitions (known as codes) – rugby league, and rugby union. The latter is often considered the more professional of the two, but rugby league is the faster, and more demanding of the two. Rugby league originated after a split in 1895 in the Rugby Football Union.

Today, there are two competitions which stand out from other rugby league tournaments. The first of these is the European Super League (although most of the teams are actually based in England), and the Australasian National Rugby League. There are also international competitions, including the Rugby League World Cup. The European Super League plays their games between February and July, before the top 8 teams enter the play-offs to determine the Grand Final winners. The winners of that competition face the winners of the Australasian champions in the World Club Challenge tournament.

Betting on Rugby League

Just like football, and other team sports, there are many ways you can bet on rugby league matches. The most common way is the bet on an outright winner, which is simply known as an Outright Bet. There are other options open to you, too, though these require a little homework before you can make your bet.

Such options include betting on “Enhanced Specials”. One way to go is to bet on a team to win by 20 or more points, or 10 or more points. You may also choose to bet on the First Try Scorer. Or on a specific player to score a try during the game. Handicap betting is also a possibility in rugby league.

If you wish to play Outright Bets on competitions, you can do that, too. You can bet on the winners of the championship at any stage of the season, and the same is true for the international competitions if you wish.

Betting tips and strategies

The tactics and line-up of teams play an important part in rugby league sports bets. You would do well to consider those into your strategy when placing bets. Another aspect to look at is the time of recuperation between rugby matches. If players are facing tough tests with only a short break in-between games, this can give an advantage to the team which has had more rest.

Generally speaking, the bigger and better rugby sides have won more often than not. This is not like other sports where underdogs can pull of a series of shocks. Sure, underdogs can sometimes triumph, but more often than not, it is the tried and tested teams that will be victorious in rugby league.
