The golden boys of English rugby and football look set to be centre stage this weekend when the football team play Montenegro and the Rugby boys take on France in their World Cup quarter final.
Jonny Wilkinson has been in poor kicking form by his high standards during this World Cup and Ladbrokes are offering money back on losing match bets if he misses his last place kick during their game with France this Saturday morning.
It looks like an extremely tempting offer with Wilkinson missing 11 of his 20 attempts at goal during the World Cup so far.
With Toby Flood available to step in and take over kicking duties should Wilkinson’s poor form continue, there is every chance his last kick could drift wide of the uprights.
While Wilkinson is having a difficult time of things on the pitch, things couldn’t be much different for Wayne Rooney.
The Manchester United striker has been in brilliant form this season and has found the net nine times already in the Premier League.
He scored two goals on England’s last European Championship away game against Bulgaria and has already scored 28 goals for the Three Lions – just two shy of England legend Alan Shearer.
With Rooney in such sparkling goalscoring form, taking advantage of Ladbrokes’ offer to refund all losing first scorer bets if Rooney finds the net at any time against Montenegro looks extremely tempting.
