Coral’s Four of the best Ruby League specials for 2015
It’s getting to that time in the calendar again that excites every rugby league fan, and has them looking forward to the start of the new season. With not long to go, Coral present a number of specials for 2015 to get your teeth into. Which ones do you fancy?
Any team to win the treble
Winning the Challenge Cup, League Leaders Shield and Grand Final is considered a clean sweep in rugby league, and Coral are offering odds of 10/1 for any team to do this. The strongest teams for next season are again expected to be Wigan and St Helens, though Leeds Rhinos, who are holders of the Challenge Cup.
Any team to win the Super League regular season and the Challenge Cup
An interesting scenario and Castleford nearly managed it last season, reaching the final of the latter, and pushing St Helens all the way in the league. Odds for this event to occur are 5/1 and it would usually be a team that is consistent throughout and can put results together and not get affected by a cup run. Castleford were a good shout last season, though Warrington could be an interesting option.
Warrington, Wigan and St Helens to win World Club Series matches
This event is completely new to this year, and encompasses three teams each from the Super League and the NRL. The English contingent will go up against St George Illawara Dragons, South Sydney Rabbitohs and Brisbane Broncos, in what is expected to be a highly charged two-day tournament. For the sides in that M62 corridor all to win matches in this competition, take odds of 11/2.
St Helens clean sweep
For Grand Final winners St Helens to win everything will be a tough task, reflected by 100/1 odds, the first one of which starts in February. Saints take on South Sydney Rabbitohs in the the World Club Challenge, before embarking on their mission to defend their Grand Final crown, in what will be a long, hard season.
