Rugby Spread Betting: Lowe to stay with Harlequins until 2016
By Andrew Scott Monday, 9 September 2013 08:55
Rugby spread betting fans were delighted to learn that George Lowe, Harlequins centre, signed a two-year contract extension, committing him to the club until 2016.
Lowe is a Quins academy graduate, and price per head services saw that ever since he made his debut in 2009 against Wasps, the player made over 100 senior appearances and scored 24 tries.
Price per head services and rugby betting UK services were impressed to see how much the player accomplished so far, as the following season the 23-year-old established himself as a first-team regular before having a starring role last year in Quins’ Aviva Premiership title win, starting in the victory over Leicester in the grand final.
The centre who is a huge favourite with rugby spread betting fans also started in 2011 in the Amlin Challenge Cup final victory, and pay per head services saw that last season he added an LV= Cup winners medal, and was part of the England side that toured South Africa last summer.
Rugby Union Betting: Robshawm insists that there will be intense competition for places

Rugby union betting fans learned that Chris Robshawm, Harlequins captain, insisted that there will be plenty of competition for places this season in their bid to get back their Aviva Premiership title.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that last season, the 2011-12 champions gave up their crown after a play-off semi-final loss to Grand Final winners Leicester over the summer, and director of rugby Conor O’Shea added strength to his side, which should make good improvements on their overall performance and rugby odds.
In the off-season, rugby union betting fans saw that O’Shea recruited experienced trio Nick Kennedy, Paul Doran Jones, and Paul Sackey. England skipper Robshaw and price per head services believe that the amount of talent at Qiuns means that no player has a first-team place guaranteed.
“You always have to look over your shoulder for new guys but that’s what’s great for the squad, it makes you a better player. If you start to coast you potentially get a bit lazy,” said Robshaw.
“We use the A League and the LV= Cup in particular for a lot of those young guys and they showed exactly what they can do, to win both those tournaments was incredible and great for the club, it really shows the youth coming through.

Many rugby spread betting fans were relieved to learn that Israel Folau put an end to lingering talks about returning to rugby league when he signed a new two-year contract with the Australian Rugby Union.
Pay per head services saw that Folau, who in June made a huge impact with two tries on his international debut against the British and Irish Lions, was courted by several NRL teams.
The 24-year-old winger, who started his career in rugby league, and who made his Test debut when he was 18-years-old, won many State Of Origin series with Queensland before making a move to Aussie Rules with the GWS Giants, and was always a favorite with rugby spread betting fans.
Pay per head services and rugby betting UK services saw that at the end of 2012, Folau joined rugby union’s New South Wales Waratahs, and his impact in the sport was so big, that the player earned an international call for the Lions series.
