The Rugby World Cup is the biggest event in the Rugby Union calendar and arguably the most important rugby tournament. Similar to other major sporting events of this kind, it is held every four years, with the next event to be held in 2023 in France.
The Rugby World Cup became one of the most important tournaments in its respective sport in a fairly short time. In fact, the tournament became so popular that in 1999, 20 teams were allowed to participate instead of the original 16, creating an even tougher and more energetic competition the likes of which is hardly seen in other sports.
Whilst the Rugby World Cup already offers an amazing spectacle of sportsmanship, UK players can additionally find a wide range of rugby betting options, available at Betiton Bookmakers UK. What’s more is that we provide players with the ability to place bets on live matches, as well as placing bets from their mobile devices.
When it comes to betting, it’s very important to make sure that you know all the terms and understand what they all mean, specifically when it comes to the odds. This applies equally for all sports and all sporting tournaments; so whether you are betting on the Rugby World Cup or betting on the 6 Nations Championship, read the following for an explanation.
Odds are the numbers that will help you to decide which team is likely to win in a match, for example. Simply put, the higher the odds, the less likely they are to potentially succeed. It’s also important to remember that odds also indicate how much you stand to potentially gain.
Odds come in a few different formats, namely: fractions, decimals, and American. The most common odds format in the UK is the fraction which works like this: 1/3 are rather low odds which indicate that the event has a 75% chance of happening, which is rather likely to happen.
As is the case with every other sport that you can place your bets on at Betiton UK, the Rugby World Cup offers a good number of different betting markets. These markets depend on different conditions for bets to be successful, so it’s recommended that punters read up on what the markets are before placing any bets.
In the meantime, we’ll be explaining 4 of the most popular Rugby World Cup markets that we offer on Betiton:
You might have already guessed what this bet means, but betting on the outright winner means that you’re betting on the winner of a match or a tournament.
When placing this sort of bet, it’s best to do some research to understand which teams have won the most games and scored the most points; this way, you’ll understand which teams stand the most chance of winning.
This bet, which is short for “betting without the favourite,” eliminates the favourite team from being considered in the bet, giving you better odds for a team which you might prefer but which don’t happen to be the strongest.
So, say you want to play on Wales, but New Zealand are stomping the competition; betting without bets will not consider New Zealand when giving the bookmaker gives you odds on Wales.
Since there are teams participating from all over the world, you can choose to back those that hail from the Southern hemisphere or the Northern hemisphere, which is what this bet does.
Betting on teams from the Southern hemisphere will see you supporting teams like South Africa and New Zealand; the Northern hemisphere, on the other hand, includes teams like England, Scotland, and France.
This bet pretty much does what it says on the tin, and that’s having to guess which teams will make it to the finals. Unlike outright winner bets, you don’t need to guess who will win the tournament to win this bet.
Betting tips are kind of like suggestions or pieces of advice that tell you which team to play on, which odds to take on which match, etc. Tips are given by tipsters, sports enthusiasts that spend a lot of time analysing team dynamics, player stats, and so on, to give punters better chances of understanding their bets.
Whilst tips are great for new bettors who are still learning the ropes of sports betting, tips should not substitute for the research that you should do whenever you think of placing a bet on any sport. Unsurprisingly, a simple Google search is actually all you need to find a slew of betting tips by a number of tipsters.

Just because England only won the Rugby World Cup once doesn’t mean that it hasn’t produced some rather fine players! Whilst none of these players play professional rugby anymore, they’re still considered the amongst the finest and best rugby players that played for England.
So, in no particular order, here are the 5 top rugby players that played for England:
The Rugby World Cup sees 20 teams compete with each other for the top spot. Qualification for the event is relatively simple. The top three teams in each group from the previous World Cup, all automatically qualify for the next one.
This leaves eight spaces up for grabs and these are taken by teams from within each region who have to undergo qualifying processes to this end. The very last qualifier isn’t actually determined until the year before the World Cup.
Once at the best rugby tournament in the world, the teams are split into four groups of five teams who play each other once, scoring points for wins and draws. The top two teams in each group move forward to the knockout stages.
These consist of the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and then eventually the final. There is also a third-place playoff for the bronze medal.
In 2023, France is once again hosting the World Cup. They hosted the event back in 2007 and are, again, taking on the responsibility alongside their hosting of the Olympics 2024.
The 2023 World Cup is also notable for it being the 200th anniversary of the invention of the sport, making this an exciting event, as well as it being the 10th World Cup.
The various matches will take place at stadiums throughout France, with fans being able to travel about the country as they follow their team and its progress through the competition.
The final though, will take place in France’s main rugby stadium – the Stade de France – in the centre of Paris.
