Gimme some big tournaments and markets

Can do sir! Well first you've got a decisions to make straight off the bat; do you go Rugby League or Rugby Union? Markets and odds are available for both but with some subtle tweaks in the rules of both knowing the difference between League and Union, with the former seen as a more free-flowing version of rugby.

If you're going Union the big one is the Six Nations - where Europe's top six rugby sides come together to work out who's the best each year. Current champions are Ireland.

In club competititons, there is the Aviva Premiership, which is the top flight of English club rugby union. Northampton are the current champions after an extra-time defeat of Saracens at Twickenham and thanks to the constant games there are plenty of options to use your rugby union free bets.

There are also plenty of European competitions, including, funilly enough, the Euro Champions Cup, which has replaced the Heineken Cup as Europe's elite club rugby union competition 

There is also The Super 15 (for teams from South Africa, Australia and New Zealand), The Guiness Pro 12 (Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales) and the Top 14 (France).

If you're plumping for League, there is the Super League, the Challenge Cup, the NRL and the State of Origin, amongst others. Both League and Union also have plenty of specials markets as well as international tournaments.

The sort of markets you can expect to bet for free on pretty much any Rugby Union or League game include the outright winner, points over-unders, first try scorers and loads more, like:

  • Half-time winning margin
  • First scoring play
  • Race to 10 points
  • Position to score first try
  • First team booking
  • Team to score first try
  • Team to score last try
  • Total cards
  • And loads more
