New Zealand were one of the standout teams in the Rugby League World Cup group stages but face their biggest test so far in their quarter-final against Fiji.

We have picked out two bets to consider for the clash at MKM Stadium in Hull on Saturday evening.

New Zealand vs Fiji Betting Tips

  • New Zealand -32 handicap 3-way – 11/10
  • Jordan Rapana & Kenneth Bromwich To Score A Try Anytime with #PickYourPunt – 7/2

New Zealand cruised their way through the group stages, as they scored 150 points across their three games against the likes of Lebanon, Jamaica and Ireland.

Fiji suffered a 42-8 defeat against Australia in their opening game of the tournament but responded well to secure second place in Pool B with wins over Italy and Scotland.

A win for Fiji in Hull this weekend is available at 14/1, with a tie at 25/1 and a victory for the Kiwis at 1/100.

Team news

New Zealand will have to do without prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves who received a one-match ban after he was sin-binned in the first half against Ireland last time out.

Kiwi half-back Jahrome Hughes looked like he was also in potential hot water with the disciplinary panel but in the end just received a caution for other contrary behaviour and dangerous contact.

After securing a 30-14 win over Scotland in their final group game, Fiji don’t have any serious injury concerns before the clash with the former world champions.

Rugby League Betting Odds

New Zealand -32 handicap 3-way – 11/10

Remarkably these sides have only played each other on one previous occasion, with Fiji winning an attritional contest 4-2 at the last World Cup in 2017.

Much has changed in the playing squads since then and this should be a much more one-sided affair in favour of New Zealand on Saturday.

The Kiwis have hit the ground running in the tournament and have the ability to pile on the scoreboard in quick bursts with accurate attacking play.

New Zealand will look to take inspiration from their rivals Australia, after the Kangaroos comprehensive win over the Fijians on the opening day of the competition.

Scoring on average 50 points a game themselves in their three group outings, New Zealand have the quality to fall on the right side of the -32 handicap.

Jordan Rapana & Kenneth Bromwich To Score A Try Anytime with #PickYourPunt – 7/2

Both Jordan Rapana and Kenneth Bromwich have enjoyed strong starts to the World Cup on English soil.

Canberra Raiders winger Rapana has scored three tries in his first two appearances through the group stages, while powerful forward Bromwich has crossed over for two himself.

In what could well be a high-scoring affair at MKM Stadium, backing Rapana and Bromwich to go over for tries at 7/2 with #PickYourPunt is worthy of consideration.
