Our predictions for the 2022 Rugby League World Cup have progressed to the semi-final stage, and we are currently seeking a handicap double payout of 14/5 on both of the results.
With the championship game scheduled to take place at Old Trafford on November 19, the remaining four teams will give it their all in an effort to advance to the next round.
A deficit of 12 points for Australia compared to New Zealand
With a ruthless 48-4 victory over Lebanon, the Kangaroos made it abundantly clear that they intend to make a clear statement of intent as they boosted their hopes of completing a hat trick of title triumphs.
Flying winger Josh Addo-Carr brought his total to 11 tries in just three matches by scoring five of them in the first quarter-final match, which took place at Huddersfield.
The star player for the Canterbury Bulldogs said, “At the moment, I’m really enjoying my football.” “I feel as though we’ve got something special coming into camp, and I’ve felt the bond between us,” she said. “And I’m just loving every minute of it.”
In their first game of the group stage, Lebanon gave New Zealand a respectable workout but ultimately lost by a score of 34-12; therefore, the formbook favors Australia when they play at Elland Road in Leeds.
The New Zealand national rugby union team has been the least convincing of the big three nations throughout this competition. They didn’t pull away from Fiji until the very end of their quarterfinal match in Hull, where they won 24-18.
Michael Maguire, the head coach of the losing team, acknowledged at halftime that his team “needs to be better in certain aspects of our game, you could see that.”
“They got a head start on us and put us under pressure right from the beginning. We cannot afford to give away free ball or penalties to the other team. This will serve as a valuable lesson for us going into the following week.
We are going to stick with the current champions on Friday night in our predictions for the 2022 Rugby League World Cup. New Zealand shocked Australia in the 2008 final, but they failed to live up to expectations five years ago and again appear to be off the pace this time.
England is in a -8 point deficit when playing Samoa at 10/11.
It is without a shadow of a doubt that Samoa will be a great deal more competitive than they were when they were routed 60-6 in Newcastle at the beginning of the group stage, but England is still the favorite to win the match.
Matt Parish has never wavered from his conviction that his team will perform better at St. James’ Park and continue to get better as the tournament progresses.
They validated that faith with victories of significant margins against Greece and France, and they were deserving winners when they edged out Tonga 20-18 in a quarter-final showdown that was intense.
According to Parish, “the tournament has never been about the first game; it has always been about the last game.”
It was never going to matter if we were at our best because the focus was always on getting better as the tournament progressed. We were pretty average that day, but we’ve improved since then. England were unbelievable that day.
However, we do have some reservations about Samoa’s performance because they had a large amount of possession against Tonga and were in advantageous positions, but they still managed to win by the skin of their teeth despite the fact that the battle was brutal and exhausting.
The progression that England has made up to this point has been relatively painless, and they were absolutely incredible in the first half of their match against Papua New Guinea, scoring seven tries in the first thirty minutes of play.
After that, Tommy Makinson went on to score five tries all by himself, and the final score was 46-6. Powerful prop Tom Burgess issued a threatening warning, saying, “We can definitely keep getting better.”
“I don’t think they were able to get out of their half in the first few sets, and I believe that played a significant role in why we got off to such a good start.”
At Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on Saturday, England’s formidable pack laid the foundation for a 38-0 lead after 24 minutes, and the hosts can be too athletic for Samoa up front. Burgess was almost unstoppable as England’s formidable pack laid the platform.
