Tournament dark horses Tonga have had their price slashed to 10/11 to reach the World Cup Final after Saturday’s thrilling win over New Zealand .
Topping Group B sees them avoid clear tournament favourites Australia in the semi finals if they can get past Lebanon on Saturday . A win in Christchurch will set up a semi final against Papua New Guinea or most probably England and bookies odds suggest Tonga would be slight favourites in a semi final against Wayne Bennett’s side .
Tonga were 5/1 to reach the final at the start of the tournament but are now seen as the most likely opponents for the Green n Gold in Brisbane on December 2nd .
Defeat against Tonga has seen the Kiwis odds drift to 5/1 to reach the final as they will now likely have to face Australia in their semi , with England now around 6/5 . All 3 sides are available at around 10/1 to win the tournament with Australia clear 3/10 favourites .
