RLWC Tips – Fiji v Scotland – Pool B

Fiji will only need a win to advance to the knockout stages but they will not get a free run against a Scotland team looking to reclaim some pride after two underwhelming showings.

Best Bet

Scotland +40.5

There is no question Fiji will win this game but with a tough finals matchup awaiting them they are likely to rest some players, particularly with six of their squad yet to play a game. All are expected to play against Scotland with a likely matchup against New Zealand looming this week.

The Bati have not been overly impressive to the eye but they have covered both games and their 60-4 win over Italy virtually assured Fiji a finals spot.

Scotland have not fired a shot this World Cup. They were beaten as double digit favourites by Italy and then lost 84-0 to a rampaging Australian team. They showed enough in patches against the Kangaroos though to suggest they can hang around with Fiji.

The Bravehearts probably have more on the line here and with pride at stake they can cover the 40.5 start.

Same Game Multi

Kaylen Miller Try/Sitiveni Moceidreke Try
Same Game Multi

Kaylen Miller is a hard-running edge backrower who is yet to feature at the World Cup but should matchup well against Scotland.

Moceidreke has six tries in 24 games for the London Broncos this year and should get plenty of the ball.

Value Bet

James Bell
To Score A Try

St Helens forward James Bell has been among Scotland’s most impressive players this World Cup. He has 11 tries in 63 games during his English career and has 12 in 54 starts throughout his top grade career. He can find the tryline.
