South Africa Lifts Ban on Hosting Sporting Event, Places Rugby World Cup Bid

Last year, the South African department of Sports and Recreation had imposed a ban on rugby, cricket, athletics and netball from hosting sporting events because these clubs did not meet its “diversity” targets.

These diversity targets were created to give more opportunities to black athletes.  Of the five biggest sports, only football was able to meet the diversity criteria.

Today, rugby, cricket and netball were able to meet the diversity goals and once again, they are able to host sporting events with the exception of athletics.  The news came out this morning after a meeting in Pretoria where government officials and representatives from those organizations reviewed the 2015/16 Eminent Persons Group (EPG) report on transformation.

Thulas Nxesi, the newly appointed  sports minister of South Africa was very happy about lifting the sanction saying “I would like to congratulate rugby, cricket and netball on their improved scores, you were clearly willing to walk the extra mile.”  Nxesi expects sporting federations to provide leadership on racial diversity at school and club levels.

Many paris virtuels websites were eagerly awaiting the news and some sports betting software companies even announced that some of their clients had even taken bets on the outcome of the press conference.

Mark Alexander the SA Rugby president was also very happy with the news  saying  it is a “tribute to the work that the sport has been doing in recent years to stay in tune and relevant to modern South Africa.”

Now that the ban is lifted on rugby, South Africa is placing a bid to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup.  The final decision on which country will host the Rugby World Cup will be made this November. South Africa will be competing against France and Ireland for the host country position.

2015-wimbledon-handicapping-previewSummer is tennis time the Wimbledon tennis tournament is right around the corner starting the 29th of June 2015 until July 12, 2015.

As tennis professional players and tennis bettors around the world all know, Wimbledon is an important part of the Tennis Grand Slam which is touted as the tennis tournament with the arguably the most prestige where the best players on this earth gather at the English Club hoping to win this tournament.

Tennis fans and especially fans who like to bet on tennis are all eagerly waiting to bet on the Wimbledon. This year, the Wimbledon the tournament has the best players participating, the big event, is the Men’s Single’s and with plenty of anxious players, like N. Djokovic who comes off a disappointing outing in the finals of the French Open, and is one of this year’s Wimbledon favorites.

Then another of the top favorites is A. Murray who is seeking his 2nd Wimbledon Trophy.  In addition watch for the sleepers who are capable of pulling off an upset in this 2015 Wimbledon.

If you Bet on Tennis and are looking for Early Odds, they are several websites where you can get them and take advantage of their brisk and favorable tennis odds.

Novak Djokovic Looking at some of the favorites to win like Murray and Djokovic we know that Djokovic failed in the finals at the French Open and lost to S. Wawrinka. But being the World’s No. 1 he has to come off the loss and try to win is 3rd Wimbledon Title.

It will be interesting, as Murray has the talent to beat the No. 1, since he is strong defensively and can play with baseline patience, and that’s what’s needed to be Djokovic and his serve, with which he has won some 43% of the time this year on return points to date.

To top it off Murray has been playing in top form to date, as he played in the semifinals or better in the last 2 Grand Slams and winning 11 of the 13 slams this 2015 season.  N. Djokovic is listed at +125 while A. Murray is on the boards at + 300.

The tennis handicapping experts are predicting that Djokovic will win the 2015 Wimbledon Title but despite this prediction, Wimbledon is known for having it’s share of upsets.
