Who are we kidding? Our Tipster just loves a good old gloat. He now has it as a magnificent seven on the bounce for wins on the board.

Last weekend's double success in terms of the Banker [Australia by more than 4] and Worth a shot [Canterbury by 6-10 points] is pretty good in anyone's book, but have no fear, our version of 'The Stig' isn't resting on his laurels.

Once again rugby is blessed with a bumper schedule of international fixtures that all kicks off this Friday in Cardiff and Toulouse. The Samoans and Springboks will be in those respective venues before England v Argentina, Italy v New Zealand, Scotland v Fiji keep us busy on Saturday.

Not sufficient? Well, a Sunday sitting in front of Grand Slam champions Ireland taking on Australia must surely be the pudding to what is a filling three days of action, which is of course backed up by more LV=Cup action.

It all looks rather exciting so let us see if our anonymous man can continue his run as Planet Rugby's advice compliments Sky Bet's plethora of rugby markets!

Banker of the week

We all know the record between Italy and New Zealand but that will be as alien as the sport set to take to the sold-out San Siro turf this Saturday.

Graham Henry has opted for as second-string as he possibly can and while the talent coming in are stand-out performers from 2009's Air NZ Cup, playing in front of a partisan crowd could force out the odd mistake and/or slip-up.

Italy meanwhile have a full-strength XV on show and I feel that captain Sergio Parisse and pivot Craig Gower can keep them within their generous handicap.

Get on the Italians (+21) against New Zealand!

Worth a shot

Sky Bet are offering some intriguing treble options this weekend and I've plumped for England to cruise against injury-hit Argentina, Wales to run away with things against Samoa and the strong-looking French to take South Africa very close.

Have a punt on the enhanced treble of England (-10), Wales (-14) and France (+3)!

Hail Mary

Our fourth and long has been given a little extra meat through the LV= Cup.

France, Wales, England, New Zealand, Scotland, Sale

Anything take your fancy?
