Ireland have been cut to win next year’s RBS 6 Nations title after their thrilling victory over New Zealand in Chicago on Saturday, which was their first over the Kiwis in 111 years of trying and landed odds of 12/1 for the more loyal supporters.
Having been available at 5/1 with most bookmakers for the 2017 championship, Ireland are now as short as 7/2 in places, with only Stan James currently unmoved at the bigger price.
The death last month of Munster coach and former Test star Anthony Foley at the age of just 42 was a huge shock for Irish rugby, but they were certainly spurred on by the pre-match tribute to the man who won 62 caps, three times as skipper.
Ireland face the All Blacks again in Dublin in a couple of weeks for which they are 9/1 with William Hill, but grab that 5/1 on the 2014 and 2015 champions while it lasts.
