6 Nations 2017 Betting

Six-Nations-TrophyEngland coach Eddie Jones has warned his players against being complacent ahead of their 6 Nations 2017 opener vs France this Saturday – televised live on ITV1 from 4.50pm – for which they are a best price of just 1/5 with Sky Bet.

The straight-talking Aussie says his side can expect a “kick up the arse” from the French if they drop below the standards they set in an all-conquering run in 2016 (W13), although the strength of Jones’ squad will be tested by a host of injuries – including the absences of brothers Billy and Mako Vunipola.

England, who secured their 13th Grand Slam in last year’s championship, are a best price of 11/5 for a 14th in 2017 at Ladbrokes – who also offer the best odds for them to win the tournament at 10/11.

Ireland, the 2014 and 2015 champions, are seen as the most serious threat in light of their sensational victory over the world champions New Zealand in the autumn internationals, with Joe Schmidt’s side available at best price 5/2 with Paddy Power.
