Cash in on the Kangaroos and Kiwis clash

As was widely expected, red-hot favourites Australia will take their place in the World Cup final in Brisbane's Suncorp stadium on Saturday morning, where they face near-neighbours New Zealand.

The Kiwis have nothing to lose (and anything is possible in a one-off final) but Aussie captain Darren Lockyer won't want to give up the trophy his country have held since 1975, before the outstanding stand-off was even born, without a fight

The hosts offensive and defensive play thus far suggests they can cover an 18-point handicap quite comfortably, and continue their dominance of the tournament's history; priced at 10/11, this could be a great value bet.

Melbourne Storm's Billy Slater, the new kid on the block, has been in scintillating form - the 25-year-old's already scored two hat-tricks.  At 16/1 he's well worth a wager to score another.

David "Wolfman" Williams marked his Test debut with a hat-trick himself against Papua New Guinea, including the first try of the match, and could easily have scored one or two more.  He's one of five players priced at 10/1 to get the first of this match - have a punt, and you'll be quids in if the bearded flyer repeats his heroics.

With all these tries the Kangaroos have been scoring, it's hardly surprising to learn they've racked up a massive 180 points in their four games up to this stage, while conceding only 16; that's an average score of 45-4 per game.  If the final follows the same pattern, a winning margin bet of Australia to win by 41-45 points looks very generous at 22/1.
