Rugby has been played for almost 200 years, and is beloved by players, spectators and bettors around the world. The sport has 2 international codes, and you can wager and win on both of them here at Spin Sports. Learn more about the Union and League codes, games and markets, before you take advantage of our lucrative sports betting offers.
This is the older version of the sport, and it is played in more than 100 countries including South Africa, France, Australia, New Zealand, China and England, where it originated. That gives you plenty of wagering opportunities for the 80-minute games, where anything can happen. Depending on the league and the specific event, teams have between 13 and 15 players on the field at a time.
Tries (where the ball is grounded in the in-goal area) and Penalty Tries (awarded by the referee where a try would have been scored but for an opponent’s foul play) earn 5 points, and after scoring a Try or a Penalty Try, sides are allowed to attempt a Conversion. This means they attempt to kick the ball over the goalposts, scoring 2 extra points if they are able to do so.
With such a broad international reach these games are played all year, and you can always find sports betting opportunities for Rugby Union. Underdogs often emerge victorious, and watching to see who will win is always exciting. You can bet on the overall winners, total score and several Propositions on the Challenge Cup, the Guinness Premiership, the Six Nations, the World Cup and several other local and international events.
This variation arose in 1895, splitting from the Union over disputes on how to pay players. A firm favourite in Australia and New Zealand, it is predominantly played by European, Pacific Island and Australasian countries. The wagers that you can place are similar to your options in a Union match, and in both variations pre-game and live bets are possible. Points are also scored with tries, but there are several differences in the rules of League and Union competitions.
League games always feature 13 teammates a side, and the 2 major competitions are the State of Origin (between Queensland and New South Wales) and the National Rugby League (here 16 clubs from New Zealand and Australia vie for the Premiership title). Australia are the current World Cup champions, and other events include Super League matches in England and France. Though not as widespread as Union, League remains very popular and offers some excellent sports betting markets, all of which you’ll find at our sportsbook.
