NZ vs Fiji
Old rivals NZ and Fiji lock horns in the first semi final of the Commonwealth Games and it promises to be a titanic battle as Fiji are chasing their first gold medal at this event. NZ on the other hand are looking for a record extending seventh gold medal.
TIP: The bookies have Fiji as favorites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.55, Playabets 1.52
HEAD TO HEAD STATS
- Fiji have won three of the last five matches between these sides
- NZ won the last match between the sides 22-19
Latest results for both teams
NZ beat Kenya 31-0 in their last match while Fiji beat Scotland 34-7 in their last match
The All Blacks sevens team have won an incredible 38 out of 39 matches at the Commonwealth games but will be facing their sternest test when they face the Olympic champions Fiji in this match. This match will come down to the defence of NZ against the flair of the Fijians. I am predicting Fiji to win this match by 8 points.

Sports crazy fan that follows all major sport but the game with the oval ball is my real passion. Was an age level rugby coach and a huge supporter of the Springboks and diehard Liverpool man. I’m an experienced punter and sports writer whose predictions/tips are sure to stir up the emotions. I love the occasional wager on the underdog.
