Grand Slam Winners Wales 9/1 For World Cup

Wales are available a best of 9/1* with Bet365 to win the rugby World Cup after securing the Guinness Six Nations title with their 25-7 victory over Ireland on Saturday.

Warren Gatland’s side stretched their record-breaking winning run to 14 games with a well-deserved win in Cardiff and in the process snuffed out England’s chances.

It is the 12th time that Wales have completed the Grand Slam and the fourth since the championship was expanded to include Italy in 2000. They will head for Japan in September as the northern hemisphere’s in-form team, but the bookmakers still see England as the biggest threat to New Zealand’s current dominance.

The world champions are the strong favourites at best odds of 6/5* with Ladbrokes and Coral, with England priced at 5/1* by Paddy Power.

England closed their Six Nations campaign with a thrilling 38-38 draw with Scotland in which the Scots recovered from 31 points down to almost claim a famous victory.
