THE MONEY MAN looks back on the league stage of Vodacom Super Rugby, which saw him quadruple his money, and ahead to the World Cup.
Discipline, discipline, discipline! Those were the key words I preached to those out there who wanted to follow my advice.
The Super Rugby regular season has come and gone in a flash. I started with R5,000, given to me by SARugbymag.co.za, and turned it into R25,050, which is a return on investment of 401%.
I had a lot of fun advising people, despite the negative comments from overly sentimental regional fans who obviously still bet with their hearts. For those more open-minded I want to thank you for all your support; there are some knowledgeable punters in South Africa and I am happy if I helped you in any way.
In a year of shock results and parity brought about by a mass player exodus to Europe and Japan, I think we did pretty well.
Don’t read too much into the Super Rugby results as a form guide to the World Cup, a tournament which SARugbymag.co.za has also asked me to give advice on.
Right now, the All Blacks are the clear favourites, but I don't think they will raise the trophy. I think the Springboks will have the best chance to lift the cup for a third time when all the dust settles later in the year.
I will continue to give my thoughts on the remainder of Super Rugby, but it's going to take a huge upset to defeat the Hurricanes. They are by far the best all-round team in the competition. If you can get better than even odds, take it.
Finally, Highbury Safika Media and SARugbymag.co.za recently launched a new game called Dash4Cash. They are giving away R50,000 cash per month and it's a great way to punt and learn about various sports while doing so. The beauty is that it costs nothing!
For those who think they know more about sport than me please register at www.dash4cash.com. I'd love to be proven wrong.
Thanks again, people.
