RLWC Tips – Papua New Guinea v Wales – Pool D

The final pool game takes place from Doncaster where the popular Papua New Guinea team take on the plucky Wales in a game that will determine who advances from Pool D to the knockout stages.

Best Bet

Papua New Guinea -26.5

The final round of pool games has seen the blowouts escalate. England and Tonga both posted 90-plus points. Lebanon, Australia and Samoa all won by 58 or more points. Northern Hemisphere teams were on the receiving end of four of those defeats.

This all bodes poorly for Wales. The Dragons have covered both games this tournament but have yet to taste success and we have seen minnows really struggling with their third clash.

The Kumuls have been very good in their two clashes. They pushed Tonga to the brink and covered against the Cook Islands. Naming close to their strongest team, they should have too much firepower for Wales.

Value Bet

Edwin Ipape
To Score A Try

Edwin Ipape has remarkably not scored this World Cup despite being across the line twice and setting up numerous tries. He was a tryscoring wizard in the Championship this year and that is a level above most of his Welsh opposition here.
