Australia currently trail behind New Zealand with a chance to be the winning 2019 Super Rugby nation on Unibet Sportsbook. They’re the 2nd best Super Rugby nation with 4 wins thanks to the Brumbies, Reds and Waratahs. The nation is New Zealand toughest competitor this season and with odds at 7.50, they could end their dominance.

Last time an Australian team claimed a Super Rugby win was in 2014 with the Waratahs claiming a 4th win for Australia. However, you should still consider to bet on 2019 Super Rugby winner nation hopefuls Australia.

This means that they’ll most likely progress to the final rounds of the competition and contest for the 2019 Super Rugby title. Fortunately, if the Brumbies fail to impress, Australia can still depend on the Reds to bring pride to the nation.

South Africa could be level with Australia on wins by national by winning the 2019 Super Rugby title

According to Unibet Sportsbook, there’s a small chance that the 2019 Super Rugby will be won by a South African team. Their 2019 Super Rugby winning odds stand at 8.50 so there’s still hope for South Africa. They’ve won the rugby union competition 3 times with the Bulls and winning this year will make them joint nation winners with Australia.

Argentina look to their defy odds of being the 2019 Super Rugby winning nationally with limited options

This year, it’s highly unlikely that the Super Rugby title will be won by an Argentinian team. Argentina currently have the worst odds at 13.00 making them a risky bet on 2019 Super Rugby winner nationality. Additionally, they also only have one Argentinian team playing further minimizing their title chances. Consequently, the South American nation will have to depend solely on the Jaguares.

However, with 14 games played, they currently top the South African conference with 9 wins and 5 losses. Additionally, they’re 2nd in the overall Super Rugby standings keeping Argentina’s winning nation hopes alive. Since their debut season in 2016, they’ve shown strong signs of improving. In the 2016 season they finished 13th, 10th in 2017 and 7th last year. However, being the winning nation might be a long shot considering the strength, record and options of the top hopefuls.

Japan will likely miss out on the winning Super Rugby nationality title this year

Similarly to Argentina, Japan also stand a low chance on Unibet Sportsbook of winning the 2019 Super Rugby. Japan (13.00) will also be limited to one team, the Sunwolves in the race to be this year’s winning nation. Unfortunately, the Sunwolves are the lowest-performing 2019 team overall with 2 wins and 12 losses from 14 games. As a result, they will most likely fail to make the quarterfinals.

Additionally, they have a poor record in the competition making them an unfavorable option to bet on 2019 Super Rugby winner nation. Since joining Super Rugby in 2016, the Sunflowers have never finished above 15th place in the overall standings.
