Time to get physical - The Tri Nations

One of the most exciting and eagerly awaited competitions in the Southern Hemisphere the Tri Nations, sees Australia, New Zealand and South Africa take each other on in a round robin style tournament.

The Tri Nations provides fans and punters with a glorious feast of rugby and some extremely competitive betting heats to get punters mouth's watering at the prospect of some tense games.

The team's play each other three times altogether which means there is plenty of time for the pendulum of dominance to swing even if one side wins their first couple of games.

The betting currently has South Africa and New Zealand both at odds of 6/4 in the betting with Australia the outsiders at 9/4 in the betting.

Since the competition started in 1996 New Zealand have been the dominant force in the tournament with nine victories, including the last four renewals, while South Africa and Australia have recorded two victories each in the competition.

Many are this year fancying the chances of the Springboks as they have just come off the back of a gruelling set of matches against the touring British Lions and will therefore be ready to compete at the highest level having already got in to the swing of top level Test rugby.

It is also interesting to note when the Lions toured Australia in 2001 and New Zealand in 2005, both the respective Southern Hemisphere sides went on to win the Tri Nations.
