SCOTLAND are boosted by the availability of Jonny Gray and Ross Ford today but still look set for a walloping from the Wallabies.
The duo will lined up in the World Cup quarter-final against Australia after having their three-week bans overturned and the whole Scots team will need to have the game of their lives if they’re to defy odds of 8-1 at Skybet for a dark blues win.
The Aussies – who have already beaten England and Wales – are just 1-8 at bet365. They are far too strong for Vern Cotter’s side and I’ll be on Australia -15 points at 11-10 with William Hill.
Ireland’s injury absentees include fly-half Johnny Sexton but they should still have enough quality to see off Argentina at odds of 4-6 with bet365 in the day’s second quarter-final.
At the Shanghai Masters tennis Novak Djokovic thrashed Andy Murray yesterday to set up today’s final showdown with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who edged out Rafa Nadal in three sets.
Tsonga won the last meeting with Djokovic a year ago but a repeat looks highly unlikely and Djokovic to win in straight sets is 1-3 at Boylesports.
