Rugby Betting: Tom Court called up as cover for Alex

Rugby betting fans saw that Corbisiero, England star, made an excellent performance in the scrum in Saturday’s 23-21 first Test win in Brisbane over Australia before he suffered a calf injury and had his spot taken by Mako Vunipola.
The doubts surrounding his availability for the second Test in Melbourne on Saturday prompted Gatland to feature the 32-year-old Court – and Cian Healy, his international team-mate who is a favourite with many rugby betting fans, is already ruled out due to injury.
Lock Paul O’Connell, another Irishman, is also a fitness concern as he injured his arm at Suncorp Stadium during a very tough series opener that saw three Wallabies carried out from the field wearing neck braces.
With O’Connell being doubtful, England giant Geoff Parling may deputise at the weekend in the second Test even though he was named as captain for the clash on Tuesday with Melbourne Rebels, and many fans that follow the club and enjoy making a rugby bet would like to see what will happen during this match gets underway.
But rugby betting fans found out that Gatland received better news, as there is a possible return of three key men – in centres Manu Tuilagi (shoulder) and Jamie Roberts (hamstring), as well as wing Tommy Bowe (hand).
Gatland said of the players: “To have Tommy and Manu fit and back is a great compliment to the medical staff. Tommy is fit for Saturday, he’s running, but the more time he has to heal the better.
“The surgeon said that that injury is normally a six to eight-week injury, so to be fit in three weeks is magnificent. It’s important not to risk him on Tuesday.
“We don’t think Jamie is too far away, he’s up and running and is potentially available for next weekend.”

The Wallabies’ reaction to their rising injury list was to bring three players to their squad – amongst them will be veteran flanker George Smith, and many fans that enjoy making a rugby bet now hope to see a stronger squad.
