Australia favoured to give Darren Lockyer victorious swansong

England will have a 14 point head start in the handicap coupon according to Apollo Bet ahead of tomorrow’s Four Nations final.

Australia are overwhelming favourites to take their fifth Tri Nations and Four Nations crown since 1999.

In the handicap coupon, England are 5/6 to win with their head start, while Australia are evens to hunt down that lead.

Steve McNarama’s men are a generous 7/2 to win the final outright, while the Aussies are 1/5.

Darren Lockyer is 20/1 to score the first try of the game in his career swansong, while Akuila Uate is the 9/1 favourite.

Uate has already scored in the tournament during his side’s 26-12 win at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in the tournament’s opener, and is 11/10 to score anytime.

Last week’s hat trick try scorer against Wales Cooper Cronk is 9/4 to score anytime during the game, but only 20/1 to open the scoring on the day.

England’s Ryan Hall is 10/1 to score first with Sam Tomkins, while Tom Briscoe and Jack Reed are 12/1 and 16/1 respectively to achieve the same feat.

The Four Nations final is a sell out at Elland Road, and 34,000 people are expected to roar on England to their first series win over Australia since 1970.
