Rugby Betting: Sexton over the moon after series win over the Aussies

Sexton, Ireland fly-half who’s a very big favourite with many fans that enjoy making a rugby bet, scored the second of the four tries made by the tourists as they defeated Australia 41-16.
After a disappointing loss in the second Test, the fly-half said that the players were keen to make history in Sydney, and many rugby betting fans were delighted to see this happen.
“We knew we had it in us,” he said. “We didn’t really get the ball off first phase in the first couple of tests, which didn’t give us a chance to attack, but we got a bit more tonight.
“The scrum was dominant and that gave us a lot of penalties. Scrum time is always important when Romain Poite is refereeing. That’s where we built our foundations. We let them back into it, which was disappointing, but the way we bounced back was outstanding.
“We wanted to attack with the ball. Rob (Howley) said before the first Test that if we scored two tries we’d win the game, and we said the same again here.”
Sexton and many of his rugby betting fans were just as disappointed as Brian O’Driscoll when he was left out of the squad for the third Test, and he dedicated the win to his Leinster and Ireland teammate, as well as Paul O’Connell.
“We wanted to do it for Paul, who missed out through injury, and for Brian,” he said.” I was so disappointed for him to miss out, I felt like I’d been dropped myself. We wanted to send him off in the best way possible.”
Rugby betting fans remember that the last time that the Lions won a series was back in 1997 in South Africa, and Sexton felt very proud to be a part of the side that broke the losing streak.

“You remember these scenes from ’97 and to be a part of the next team to win a series is a dream come true,” he said.
Fans everywhere that follow the British and Irish Lions and enjoy making a rugby bet were very happy with the win, and would like to see them continue this way.
