History shows that when backing in the best tryscorer marketplace, it pays to follow full-backs and New Zealand wingers. The All Blacks have provided the top tryscorer on five occasions (Craig Green/John Kirwan 1987, Jonah Lomu 1995 & 1999, Doug Howlett/Mils Muliaina 2003 along with Julian Savea at 2015).
It’s a mark of their talent and depth in the New Zealand rear three that the player with less than a couple of test starts heads the current market, that man is Sevu Reece. The 22-year-old exploded on the scene in his debut season, scoring 15 attempts (a league high) since the Crusaders secured another Super Rugby title.
Reece forced his way and then scored his first All Blacks attempt. With question marks surrounding starter Rieko Ioane, Reece seems set to obtain a lot of game time in the group stages where fixtures from Canada, Italy and Namibia provide considerable chance to stand up the attempts.
Reece from the squad’s addition feels like the Joe Rokocoko who burst onto the scene in 2003 and scored 6 tries. So while it isn’t generally my strategy to go with a favorite in this market, Reece looks too clear to overlook.
My next choice in the top tryscorer marketplace is Australia’s Marika Koroibete, another winger. Codes were switched by the former rugby league star in 2017 and might be set for a breakout tournament. While his tally of 5 international tries in 18 looks may not leap off the page, however may have been a product of the group around him.
Australia seem to have discovered a balance that is much better in their backline with the return of James O’Connor from the centers providing guile alongside the battering ram Samu Kerevi. With Kurtley Beale set to satisfy the boots of Israel Folau Koroibete should be given plenty of opportunities to improve his tally.
Add to his matches against Fiji, Georgia and Uruguay in the groups must be open, a plenty attempts — in 66/1 he is worth chancing.
England head to Japan filled with confidence after strong performances in the warm-up matches and one individual who is critical to their own hopes is Manu Tuilagi.
The wrecking ball center is putting a series of games having showcased in 2019 in every England fixture. He caused havoc against Ireland at Twickenham a few weeks.
Crucially that performance came with Tuilagi lining up at outside center (he played at inside centre during the Seven Countries ) — playing in that extra space actually utilises the 28-year-olds skills where he could attack the external channels and does not constantly face a couple of man tackles.
With fitness doubts enclosing Henry Slade and Jonathan Joseph, Tuilagi is guaranteed to play at 13 along with Owen Farrell and George Ford — with all the talent around him the Leicester guy can actually excel at this World Cup and looks a good each-way bet to lead the effort scoring charts to his nation.
South African fly-half Handre Pollard enjoyed a sensational World Cup debut in 2015 scoring 93 points (finishing second to Nicolas Sanchez in scoring graphs ) since the Boks claimed third spot. Even the 25-year-old is a target kicker but in addition supplies a danger in ball in hand, scoring 6 tries at 41 games.
That the Boks face a simple group stage should you fancy them to move deeply into the tournament as I do and where things should flow against Namibia Pollard is going to be the man kicking against the penalties and conversions.
Out of the market fundamentals he appears the most solid in my eyes and awarded his evaluation document, his cost of 5/1 won’t survive long.
