Punter takes $140K reward after All Black win

A punter has made $140,000 profit as the biggest bet ever placed with the TAB came good with New Zealand's 34-17 victory over Australia in the Rugby World Cup final.

The TAB is not disclosing who placed a $400,000 bet for the All Blacks to win the World Cup in London, saying only that they lived in the North Island.

The bet was placed at $1.35, meaning the TAB will pay out $540,000, giving the punter a $140,000 reward for his faith in the side.
