Great Betting Opportunities on the Heineken Cup

This coming weekend will see some great rugby action in the Heineken Cup and a fantastic opportunity to place some exciting bets. Last season’s runners up Northampton will be taking on Munster and Gloucester will be taking on the formidable Toulouse.

This weekend will see some exciting action in the Heineken Cup and with a great offer from Bet365 there’s no reason not to back your favourite team.

Northampton Saints are expected to be full of motivation after their defeat in last year’s final but Munster are not to be dismissed. Munster has a lot of fresh young players, they have good early season form and playing at Thomond Park could give them the edge. Northampton’s front row has been in excellent form so far this season and is expected to deliver in the upcoming match. At Bet365 you’ll find odds of 8/15 on Munster to win and 6/4 on Northampton, the tie is at 20/1.
Gloucester is facing four time winners Toulouse but the team are looking forward to the challenge. Rory Lawson, the scrum-half, said that the team “have got to look at the challenge in front of us and say ‘Well that guy’s rated as world class, I’ll go out and see if I can better him”.

Toulouse is full of international players which Lawson describes as “a great challenge”. Whilst Gloucester’s on the road form hasn’t been great so far this season, they did win at Exeter last week which is likely to put them in good spirits.
Toulouse are in excellent form, leading the Top 14 in France they most recently won 21-17 over Perpignan. However, the two sides have never met before so there is an element of the unknown going into the match.

This weekend Bet365 are running an excellent promotion allowing you £200 of free bets to spend on any sport including all Heineken Cup games. Don’t miss out on this great value offer, visit them today and back your favourite team to win.
