Punters betting on Lomu's fairytale coming true

Punters betting on Lomu's fairytale coming true

Centrebet punters are betting on Jonah Lomu representing New Zealand at the next World Cup.

Lomu is 2.40 (from 6.00 when Centrebet opened its book ten months ago) to play for the All Blacks in the 2007 tournament as punters think that he can accomplish his stated ambition.

Rugby union's first global superstar returns to action tomorrow after two years on the sidelines. He is the captain of his own team in former England skipper Martin Johnson's testimonial.

"Bets on Jonah realising his World Cup dream outnumber those on him not making the grade by ten to one," says Centrebet's Gerard Daffy. "Punters believe that he is rugby's superman."

With or without Lomu, New Zealand is Centrebet's favourite to win the World Cup at 3.50.

The All Blacks are 1.43 to beat the British and Irish Lions and 2.80 to win all three Tests.
