England Evens For Grand Slam

RBS-Six-Nations-TrophyDefending champions England are now a best price of just 4/11 with Coral to win the RBS 6 Nations after extending their record-breaking run to 16 wins with a narrow success against Wales.

Coach Eddie Jones was a relieved man after seeing his side claim victory with a late try for the second successive Test, but he now has a fortnight to work out a formula for ensuring his players secure an important bonus point when they face Italy in Rome.

England were dominated for long periods in Cardiff, but they were clinical when they were able to work scoring opportunities.

A second Grand Slam under Jones is their main aim and they are even money with both Sky Bet and Coral to achieve it, with a Calcutta Cup match against Scotland at Twickenham and then a trip to Dublin to face Ireland completing their schedule.

Ireland currently sit second in the table, courtesy of the two bonus points they have collected over the first two weeks. They are 11/2 second favourites with BetVictor and Paddy Power in the outright betting, having been 9/4 prior to the first match.

That’s not a bad price if you fancy them to end England’s winning run.
