Thumbs down for Lomu...Thumbs up for Hewitt


Thumbs down for Lomu...Thumbs up for Hewitt

Centrebet has lengthened its odds on Jonah Lomu representing New Zealand at the next Rugby World Cup but promoted another former All Blacks star to Dancing with the Stars favouritism.

Lomu is 5.00 (from 2.40) to play for New Zealand at the 2007 tournament after dislocating his shoulder in Martin Johnson's testimonial match. He is 1.14 (from 1.50) not to realise his dream.

Norm Hewitt is Centrebet's favourite at 2.20 (from 2.25) to win the Television New Zealand show, with Shane Cortese (unchanged at 2.25) and Tim Shadbolt (4.50 from 6.00) completing the field.

The All Blacks are 2.45 (from 2.80) to beat the British and Irish Lions 3-0 in the Test series, New South Wales is 1.50 (Queensland 2.55) to win State of Origin II at Telstra Stadium and Newcastle is 12.00 (from 13.00) not to register a victory in any of its National Rugby League games this year.
