Rugby World Cup 2019 Top Scorer Tips & Preview

History demonstrates that it is worth it to follow full-backs and New Zealand wingers when backing in the top tryscorer industry. The All Blacks have supplied the best tryscorer on five occasions (Craig Green/John Kirwan 1987, Jonah Lomu 1995 & 1999, Doug Howlett/Mils Muliaina 2003 and also Julian Savea at 2015).
It’s a mark of their talent and depth in the New Zealand back three that a player having less than a handful of test begins heads the market, that man is Sevu Reece. The 22-year-old exploded onto the scene in his debut season, scoring 15 tries (a league high) as the Crusaders secured another Super Rugby title.
Reece pushed his way to the team of Steve Hansen and scored his first All Blacks attempt. With question marks surrounding usual starter Rieko Ioane, Reece seems set to find a whole lot of game time where fittings against Canada, Italy and Namibia provide ample opportunity to stand up the attempts.
Reece in the squad’s addition feels like that of Joe Rokocoko who scored 6 tries at five appearances and burst onto the scene in 2003. So while it is my way to go with a favorite in this market, Reece looks too obvious to overlook.
My second choice in the top tryscorer market is Australia’s Marika Koroibete, just another winger. Codes were switched by the former rugby league star and can be set for a breakout tournament. Now while his tally of 5 tries in 18 looks may not jump off the page, however that may have been a product of the group around him.
Australia seem to have seen a much better balance today in their backline with James O’Connor from the centers providing guile together with the battering ram Samu Kerevi’s return. With Kurtley Beale set to meet the boots of Israel Folau Koroibete ought to be given plenty of chances to add to his international tally.
Add to his matches against Georgia Fiji and Uruguay in the groups needs to be open, grand affairs along with tries a plenty — in 66/1 he is well worth chancing.
After strong performances in the warm-up games and one man who is crucial to their hopes is Manu Tuilagi england head to Japan filled with confidence.
The ball center is placing a run of games together having featured in every England fixture at 2019. He caused chaos against Ireland at Twickenham a couple of weeks past scoring a try as England cruised into a 57-15 victory.
Crucially that performance came with Tuilagi lining up at outside centre (he played at inside centre throughout the Six Nations) — playing in that excess space actually simplifies the 28-year-olds skills where he could strike the outside channels and doesn’t always face a few man tackles.
With fitness doubts encompassing Henry Slade and Jonathan Joseph, Tuilagi is sure to play 13 alongside Owen Farrell and George Ford — together with all the talent around him that the Leicester man can truly shine at this World Cup and seems a good each-way bet to direct the effort scoring charts to his nation.
South African fly-half Handre Pollard appreciated a sensational World Cup debut in 2015 scoring 93 points (ending second to Nicolas Sanchez in scoring graphs ) as the Boks claimed third spot. Even the 25-year-old is a target kicker but offers a threat in ball in hand, scoring 6 tries at 41 games.
The Boks face a group stage that is simple if you fancy them to move deep into the tournament as I do and where points should flow especially against Namibia Pollard will be the guy kicking conversions and the penalties.
Out of the marketplace principles he appears the most solid and given his evaluation document, his cost of 5/1 will not last long.
